you don't always need a star designer
Two seasons sans a star creative director, yet the report card for Tod’s in-house design team remains a resounding “Yes, they can”. Tapping on and adding to the brand’s mastery of leather, this band of unsung heroes (they took a bow at the end of the show) turned out a modern, womanly collection of wardrobe staples and accessories with surprisingly trendy flourishes. Cue the super luxe take on puffer jackets and parkas, creeper-soled moccasins, and the brand’s own elegant take on the now-ubiquitous sock-boot and nano-sized bag. Word is that this could be a permanent arrangement. We have to say that we like this status quo.
