Tod’s revealed its latest menswear collection today through a film titled #sevenT.
Designed by Creative Director Walter Chiapponi the collection features a reinterpretation of classics through which he explores the Tod’s lifestyle of connecting with nature.
Tailoring is relaxed throughout the collection, while warm earthy tones are used on tweeds, wools and sturdy cottons that reflect the Italian landscape in which the film is set. This collection is all about being outdoors – something we have all come to appreciate and embrace of the recent months.
There are clear key pillars of the collection: the trench coat, the shirt-jacket, the hunting jacket and field jacket; all reflecting the traditional great outdoors and a passion to be at one with nature. Riding pants, ribbed sweaters and the college sweatshirt give the collection a young preppy feel. The classic Italian gentlemen combined with a young, free man embracing the day.
Of course, accessories were key to this collection as they always are. Shoes were built to be worn. Robust lace-ups with Norweigian stitching, ankle boots with Texan heels, multi-material sneakers and desert boots with enlarged gommini. These are durable shoes, perfect for winter months outside.
The “T” symbol returns this season on belt buckles and loafers. It is repeated on soft leather deconstructed backs. These almost seamless pieces were carefully handmade with minimum cuts.
A timeless collection that embodies the man of today.
