BRIGHT NEW WORLD

The new Tod's col­lec­tion her­alds a new di­rec­tion for the lux­ury brand

Red Magazine - - News -

Un­der the guid­ance of Tod's new cre­ative di­rec­tor Alessan­dra Facchinetti, the brand reaches new heights with the use of mod­ern tech­nol­ogy. From the tra­di­tional hand­sewn process, Tod's has now branched into us­ing ma­chines to cre­ate laser-cut ac­ces­sories, el­e­vat­ing pro­duc­tion quan­tity with­out com­pro­mis­ing the lux­u­ri­ous and re­fined qual­ity that it is known for. "Made in Italy" re­mains imbed­ded in the Tod's DNA, with the leather se­lected from and pro­cessed in the coun­try's best tan­ner­ies, and the crafts­man­ship backed by years of re­search.

Fachinetti's first de­signs for the brand de­but in the Spring/Sum­mer 2014 col­lec­tion, which sees some of Tod's hall­mark pieces in new forms and col­ors: The Gom­mino driv­ing loafer in stripes and spots, and the leather moc­casin in two-tone color con­trasts of cream with navy, yel­low with cream and pale blue with black. The new Bal­le­rina Gom­mino comes in two styles, one fringed and the other with an an­kle strap, and in bright red, pink and cream.

Fringe looks to be the defin­ing el­e­ment of the new sum­mer style, ap­pear­ing not only on Tod's high heels and flat san­dals but also on some of its bags, such as the leather Bauletto. Con­trast stripes are another one, prom­i­nent on the Sella Bag, the Shop­per and the clas­sic Bauletto. Geo­met­ric pan­els also look to be in, seen on both the slouchy Bucket and the more struc­tured D-Cube Bag. Round­ing out the col­lec­tion are the dis­tinc­tive leather belts, bracelets and patterned silk scarves in shades com­ple­men­tary to the rest of the se­lec­tion, which em­body the sea­son's spirit of re­laxed lux­ury.—

D-Cube Bauletto Mini satchel; Cuoio Gomma T115 TT Maxi Fran­gia heels; Men's Mo­cassino Fondo Light TD Loafer in Blue Suede. Tod's is avail­able at Green­belt 4 and Rus­tan's Tower, Shangri-La Plaza Mall.
