Walter Chiapponi continues his gentle transformation of the Tod’s wardrobe by emphasising the craftsmanship that built the house’s reputation. And next season will include the iconic Tod’s extravagant 133 rubber pebbles.
Gommino Tod’s: Enhanced pebbles
Walter Chiapponi takes the Tod’s wardrobe back to the 70s in the highly anticipated encounter between contemporary art and the traditional heritage of this Italian house. The collection which was showcased through a video shot in the heart of Castello di Rivoli, the location of the Turin Museum of Contemporary Art, outlines the new vision of Tod’s craftsmanship.
Known for their exquisite and sophisticated leathercraft, Tod’s focuses its know-how into silhouettes in which cool meets refined high-quality materials. In the words of Walter Chiaponni, “I like to work on style stereotypes, almost undermining them with a sense style of luxury”.
It’s true that when you see the slightly sportier cuts associated with refined leather and wools, you think that Tod’s men are just playing with the classics to then deviate from them.
Speaking of which, it is the iconic Gommino which has been revived to have 133 accentuated pebbles. Named the Winter Gommino, the Autumn/Winter 2022 collection presented this version in ecru suede, with enhanced rubber pebbles to better make its mark in today’s era. Cooler and a little edgier, the Gommino is rebellious, while demonstrating the timelessness of Tod’s know-how.
