Tod’s SS17: Reinventing timeless icons for the modern-day jetset

It goes without saying that leather craftsmanship plays a significant part in Tod’s heritage since its inception in 1978. For its latest season to hit the stores, the Italian brand played to its strengths by highlighting “timeless icons” that are all hand-crafted impeccably by its artisans, while imbuing a contemporary spirit that’s synonymous with the 21st-century leather aficionado and fashionable jetset.


Tod’s icons today include the signature Double T bag, the Wave bag, and the Gommino shoes—all of which have been reinterpreted in total leather this Spring/Summer 2017. Expect a variety of luxe materials, from precious python to Ayers and suede leather, some mixed and matched together with stripe effects, including the Double T crossbody mini bag that takes on a ’70s touch with its iconic fastening covered in leather.

For shoe lovers, there’s something for everyone from Tod’s SS17. Skins are metallised for a chic, urban finish, while the sneakers with perforated panels boast a new sole that’s edged with raffia—talk about making a seasonal statement. While we’re on a summer-loving sentiment, flat leather wraparound sandals in python are made for day to night springtime soirees. Those who would relinquish their heels for dressier flats would love Tod’s Double T Loafers that come in a plethora of chic materials, from patent leather to python in stunning shades.

For the fashionable male demographic, Tod’s offers the same luxurious treatment from the women’s accessories for men’s footwear. Find the Gommino in various shades and materials—the sneakers are available in brushed suede, and a two-tone texture-effect leather and fabric combo. A rugged aesthetic comes in the form of Tod’s sneakers in antiqued smooth leather with iconic rubber pebbles on the heel, and Gommino Driving shoes in leather with a used, industrial-like effect.
