Tod’s Ready-to-wear collection
Mr Porter.com recently announced an exclusive partnership with Tod’s Group as the first online partner retailer of the brand’s Ready-to-wear collections. To date, Tod’s has distributed its ready-to-wear collections across its international brick-and-mortar stores exclusively. Menswear will land on the site on September 8.
Tod’s is a leader in the luxury leather goods industry. Founded as a small shoe factory in Casette D’ete in the early 1940s, it epitomises Italian style with a focus on craftsmenship. The signature Tod’s Gommino, with its trademark 133 rubber pebbles on the sole, was born in the late 1970s, and in 1997, the D-bag was introduced as part of the first Tod’s bag collection. Later in 2014, the brand released a full ready-towear wardrobe collection for men.
That collection is now available online, as well as in stores. Mr Porter’s sister-site, Net-a-porter.com, which is aimed at female shoppers, will also benefit from the partnership.
When menswear hits Mr Porter.com, the site will launch an edited collection of the FW15 ready-to-wear pieces, including suede and leather outerwear, tailored denim, wool knitwear and luxury casualwear. The site will also include a new season offering of selected pieces from Tod’s signature footwear, leather goods and accessories.
“As a foremost innovative global online retailer, we are delighted to partner with Net-a-porter and Mr Porter to launch our Tod’s ready-to-wear collections online. The Net-a-porter and Mr Porter focus on quality, detail, and the impeccable service they provide their client-base is very much in keeping with the Tod’s philosophy,” said Tod’s group global general manager, Claudio Castigloni.
“Net-a-porter and Mr Porter have a very particular eye towards quality and an excellent merchandise selection combined with a 360-degree approach to the market – they anticipate and develop new ways of shopping that are exciting.”
