Tod’s Spring 2016 Collection Comes Packed With Attitude

When one thinks about Tod’s, rock ‘n’ roll cool does not come to mind. But for spring ’16, Tod’s creative director Alessandra Facchinetti embraced her musical roots (little known fact: her father is in a popular Italian rock band, Poo, and is quite famous in her native country) by offering a variety of acoustic-inspired details on footwear.

The results?

Never have the label’s flats come packed with so much attitude. Styles came complete with safety pin embellishment, guitar patchwork and laser-cut treatments on the signature Gommino driving moc. Studding and graphic strip patterns also gave the conservative staple a whole lot of verve.

These styles formed the new Tod’s Band capsule, which the brand is highlighting through a #squadgoals-worthy group of influencers including Langley Fox Hemingway, Lizzy Jagger, Julia Restoin Roitfeld and Chloe Norgaard. They are all participating in a campaign shot by Sonia Sieff.

Elsewhere, sleek sneakers prevailed. With a glove-like construction and ultra-slim profile, they were a departure from current tastes, which lean more towards chunkier, more substantial soles. To beef up these patent styles a bit, large utility buckles and tongue tabs were added.
