Tod’s Spring – Summer 2017 Men’s Collection

We start with the wooden work table where the first designs came from: Diego and Andrea Della Valle’s grandfather took the first steps in this long story right here. Now, as then, the leather universe created by Tod’s is intensely artisanal.

A crafted coating that produces a strikingly velvety aged effect, a special treatment employed throughout the collection.

Inspired by Mark Rothko’s graphic subtlety, abstract brushwork gives Tod’s icons new movement.

Hand-treated skins and experimental coatings nuancing black to sand, blending grey and mud, dark brown and other earth colours.

Tod’s signature motif – The Gommino – defines the brushed suede of the sneakers. In all the versions, even the new patent ones and the two-tone texture-effect leather/fabric models.

Travel loves a soft yet functional envelope to hand, especially if it’s the tumbled leather envelope bag with a gommino-finish bottom. It opens and closes with or without a zip and is worn in the hand or on the shoulder.

The pash coating features in the field jacket, bomber and biker. Leather garments with a cosmopolitan and contemporary cut, airy as a fabric. A wardrobe of surprising lightness that folds like tissue paper but never creases: sophisticated and versatile hand luggage.
