The Tod’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection appears to be a return to the brand’s sources. Creative director Andrea Icontri turned towards the designs imagined by Diego Della Valle’s grandfather as his primary inspiration. A woodworked table distills a number of color shades within a collection imagined as an ode to leather and the brand’s own craftsmanship.
The subtle, graphic movements initiated by painter Mark Rothko in the 20th century take on a whole new meaning when used on Tod’s clothing. Leather coats ranging from black to sandy brown, from grey to more earthy tones, take on a profound and experimental look. Their suede calf leather hides look more aged while the collection takes flight through an arresting effect that particularly suits the muted beauty and elegance of Tod’s men.
Throughout these looks, the Gommino inserts itself with such ease that it’s able to bring the nonchalance of these easy-to-wear cuts to the next level. When a contemporary silhouette composed of aviator and biker jackets is added into the mix, one thing becomes certain: the summer 2017 Tod’s man is gaining in fashion appeal without selling out on his legendary sophistication.
