THE SHOES
This season’s highlight is a style in which the manufacturing
requires a perfect ability: The Monk strap ankle boot for a more
casual look or the classic décolleté, where the extremely light
plateau is joined to a visible leather sole, and the heel, padded in
leather, gives the shoe an original and very feminine aesthetic.
Luxury and preciousness lie in the complexity of the
construction, in the quality of materials and in their special use.
The same knowledge on craftsmanship is underlined in the
special Tod’s expertise on wedges: ankle boots and boots become
elegant and light, a new shape of casual and refined style.
The iconic Winter Gommino has been reinterpreted throughout
a new rubber plateau sole, as well as the Tod’s renown
Gommino, which becomes the season’s must-have in leopard-
print pony skin.
The range of products is completed by: a to-the-knee high heel
boot in brushed calfskin and soft suede, simple yet elegant and
with a chunky 10cm heel, a playful mix of classic and modern
coloured suede slippers and flat loafers with tassels in classic
brush or metallic calf skins.
THE BAGS
For the new season, the Tod’s bag collection widens with new
shapes, where the high quality is expressed in newmodels, with
precious materials and in different colors. The luxury of quality
is an aesthetic and functional pleasure.
The Miky Bag, iconic model of the brand, develops an
innovative design. The rounded construction, example of the
high quality of the brand, has a leading role in this bag, along
with the “selleria” touch, which is highlighted by the contrasting
seaming. The leather is very soft and the patent calf skin
enhances the skill of Tod’s artisans. In a bigger version, the
handle and the shoulder belt make the Miky Bag extremely
versatile: a bag where the precision, the modernity and the
quality are described by every detail.
The iconic D Bag Luxury, an evolution of the classic D Bag in a
super-luxurious hide, features a full leather lining. Created with
the highest levels of craftsmanship and technical expertise and
in the most beautiful leathers, the DBag is soft, with a hand-cut
finish and a contemporary silhouette ranging in precious tie-
and-dye crocodile and calf skin with bright sheep skin details,
or more rectangular in coloured soft calfskin and sheep skin.
The shopper, which became already a classic, is bigger yet still
elegant. The material is exquisitely soft, in natural calfskin,
perfect for the Tod’s woman, who enjoys family, travel and work
and who needs functionality and elegance at the same time.
The collection is completed by a range of new tiny shoulder bags
and two tone oversized clutches with a newmetallic clip closure.
