Tod’s Unveiles A Leather-Focused Collection for Spring/Summer 2017

The Tod’s spring/summer 2017 fashion show was a feature in beautiful leatherwork and interesting ready-to-wear outfit options. Everything was beautifully done and though the clothes were fantastic, trimmed in python, suede, and leather in varying shades and finishes, the true stars still shone bright.

Tod’s has been through a bit of refreshment, including the departure of Alessandra Facchinetti, their former creative director. Nevertheless, the show was great, with the Wave bags and Double T bags shown in several different colors and combinations in the models hands.

The idea appeared to be to show how well Tod’s spring and summer 2017 collection of accessories would work with commonly worn silhouettes and ensembles. The small Double T bags and the micro Wave bag, as well as other iterations of the double T and Wave are also seen in the collection with various outfits.

Presentations of the Gommino Driving shoes, sandals, heels and loafers were shown in videos that can be seen on Instagram. There were also videos of gloved hands caressing the Double T bags. The variety of colors, prints and finishes is fascinating and well received. The heels shown in the presentation are block heeled and feature an ankle strap in several different colors.

Furthermore, the long standing and well-earned reputation Tod’s has for fine Italian leather goods is beautifully apparent. The sandals are well crafted and look beautiful against the other fringe leather shift dress. The leather loafers are still classically beautiful and the slip-on and lace-up sneakers and moccasins are beautifully done in an array of colors that is truly amazing.

Making a choice is not easy as so very many of the shoes appear comfortable and beautifully, richly colored. So many of the looks are already beautiful, but cohesively the entire collection just works in a way that many other collections do not. Very rarely are most of the shoes entirely comfortable in appearance and stunningly beautiful as well, but this is the case for the shoes in the Tod’s spring 2017 collection.

Of course, the show wasn’t entirely dedicated to iconic Tod’s accessories, but we also saw an array of easy-to-wear, sleek looks, featuring biker jackets, pea coats perfect for the transitional seasons, shift dresses and leather or suede T-shirts that are too luxe to go by unnoticed. Python skin finishes, Italian leather and suede were at the core of this collection, which is captivating without question. The options are varied and with something for everyone there will be plenty of sales.
