Tod’s has tapped English actor Jack Huston as its latest face. The Italian brand has released its fall ’16 campaign imagery, which features Huston wearing a variety of its luxury footwear styles.
The images were shot by Tom Craig in a villa outside Milan. Huston — who has appeared in films such as “American Hustle” and the upcoming “Ben-Hur” — wears classic Tod’s dress styles, including a leather lace-up brogue, a patent loafer and a sporty leather sneaker.
Huston was drawn to the brand’s longstanding Italian heritage. “I love Tod’s products; they’re outstanding,” he said in a release. “I love the food, culture and people in Italy. I spent six months filming there last year, and my family all fell in love. I’d love to end up in Italy rather soon and call it home. It’s magical.”
In June, Tod’s debuted its latest spring ’17 men’s collection in Milan. The offering included sporty sneakers with dip-dye effects and its signature Gommino clasp loafers, done in new treatments like a foliage print.

The brand also recently completed its first phase of restoring the Colosseum in Rome, a project that the Tod’s Group is helping to fund. The initial phase was completed on the northern and southern facades of the Colosseum.
