In the wake of creative director Alessandra Facchinetti’s departure in 2016, the Italian house’s design team chose to focus on outerwear—an apt decision, considering that Tod’s is a leather house. There were classic trenches in supple nappa, cinched with a black obi or sporting a storm flap in caramel leather with white piping, a classic Tod’s colour combo. Leather was also worked into whisper-weight suppleness for a paper leather blouson shirt and matching full skirt, and exotics were showcased in a black crocodile jacket. The showstopper: a puffer moto jacket that was just this side of oversized. As for the accessories, a Sella handbag (above) in delicious shades of chocolate, and lace-up taupe suede boots (below) with high stacked heels were both commercial and covetable.
