Tod’s Addresses The Whole Man-------
In the palatial Villa Necchi Campiglio—Tilda Swinton’s impossibly gorgeous manse from I Am Love—Tod’s showed its Fall collection. The label is pitching itself to men as a one-stop-shop for leather lovers, and on view in the villa’s various salone was a full, vari-hued range of casual and dress loafers, lace-ups, wallets, desk accessories, bags, briefcases, and iPad cases. Tod’s pioneered the rubber sole; here it appeared in a thicker, slightly wedged version that had a sporty feel. But the real news this time out is the brand’s dip into men’s Ready-to-Wear. To go with your loafers and iPad case, may we suggest a bomber or safari vest in suede or supple skin?
