Tod’s presented its men’s Spring-Summer 2022 collection via a virtual presentation this week as part of Milan Fashion Week.
Titled “Tod’s Under The Italian Sun” the video was shot at Cantina Petra, Suvereto in the heart of the Tuscan countryside and is a celebration of modern Italian craftsmanship.
The collection is made up of classic staples reinterpreted in contemporary ways using modern materials new details and new proportions.
This season the inspiration combines the adventurous imagery of Peter Beard with the idea of the urban safari, imagining a wardrobe focused on leisure. Volumes are soft, enveloping, even in tailoring. Mediterranean and sandy colours harmonise with the landscape.
Classic staples including the Jack Biker jacket and the iconic T Jacket are given modern updates including patch pockets in leather, suede details and gommino pads on the arms. Trench coats are made of light nylon in bright hues and lightweight safari jackets are parted with chambray trousers and canvas shirts. Trousers are practical, in parachute canvas, with drawstring detail at the ankle. Knitwear is chunky yet light.
Accessories feature thick-soled desert and Chelsea boots, and the Winter Gommino returns with a new look. The new sneakers Dots Run overlap nylon and leather and combine contrasting colours, with soles that are always characterised by the iconic gommino. The penny loafer or T Timeless moccasins have deconstructed and soft shapes.
The Camera Bags, inspired by the bags of photographers, are also marked by the T, while the lion recurs like a herald: embossed on the leather of the large backpacks and weekend bags in canvas and leather, and on the bags in woven raffia and leather, embroidered and enlarged on the canvas bags.
