What comes to mind when you think of an Italian summer? Leisurely afternoons basking in the warm glow of the European sun? Or, an elegant nonchalance that has made the Italian lifestyle a very attractive concept? Tod’s channelled the latter this season, crafting a modern leisure wardrobe for the jet-setting woman. Models strutted down the catwalk in calming tones of beige, white and yellow, while a focus on materials such as suede and leather (a pyjamas set in paper-thin calfskin was a standout), solidified the reputable standing of Tod’s as a House of exceptional know-how. Its craftsmanship shone through in its accessories selection, too. Boxy bags in exotic skins, plus the reinvention of the brand’s iconic moccasin in various iterations, will no doubt be a hit among style-savvy women.
