ALESSAN­DRA FACCHINETTI

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The News -

Cre­ative direc­tor of Tod’s What was your in­spi­ra­tion for the

Spring/ Sum­mer ’15 col­lec­tion? I did a lot of re­search and tried to un­der­stand women’s emo­tions in re­la­tion to their clothes. For this col­lec­tion I wanted to bring in el­e­ments out­side of fash­ion, such as art. I love ’50s Ital­ian art, in­clud­ing the work of ar­chi­tect Gio Ponti. So I looked at a lot of images and wrote down con­cepts. It was a very emo­tional process for me.

Who is the Tod’s woman? The Tod’s woman has both fem­i­nine and mas­cu­line sides; she val­ues a clas­sic, com­fort­able style and that comes through in her day-to-day life. What is your favourite pal­ette for Tod’s? The com­bi­na­tion of nat­u­ral hues like beige and

choco­late, along with pink tones. Which are your favourite pieces

in this col­lec­tion? The biker jack­ets and the denim pieces. What oc­ca­sion would you say Tod’s

ready-to-wear is for? It’s for ev­ery­thing from daily life to spe­cial oc­ca­sions. I don’t like to make clothes for one par­tic­u­lar mo­ment, with one par­tic­u­lar style. The more a woman can pair her Tod’s pieces with her ex­ist­ing clothes and ac­ces­sories, the bet­ter. Is there any­one who in­spires you

while you de­sign? I don’t have any one par­tic­u­lar muse, but through­out the de­sign process I would dis­cuss con­tin­u­ously with my best friend, Caro­line Issa. In fact, I find the way dif­fer­ent women carry them­selves and their at­ti­tudes in their

daily lives is what draws me more.
