Fashion brand TOD’S unveiled their Pre-Spring 2023 Collection that fuses classic male wardrobe elements with elegance and femininity. The brand’s creative director Walter Chiapponi was inspired by the 90s style, for the collection he paired the simplicity of the minimalist and androgynous silhouettes with feminine sense of texture and flaunting three-dimensional effects. The collection features unconventional materials and colours such as purple suede, white poplin-like leather, soft red plongé nappa, patchworks of distressed denim, linen and wicker hemp fabrics, and large ethnic stripes.
“The knitwear comes under the spotlight, combining essential lines with the tactile pleasure of handmade textures. The accessories perfectly reflect a balance of exceptional Italian craftsmanship with the rigor and clean lines of contemporary design. Large bags feature shapes that are geometric yet never rigid and their construction becomes a decorative element, as seen in the T Timeless Bag with contrast stitching. Precious leathers seamlessly blend with ethnic-style fabrics to enrich every look with a touch of individuality. The shoes play on the most traditional Tod’s designs and a taste for the handmade, as seen in the classic Tod’s loafers with a straw wedge and metal Kate embellishment, and the sabot clogs in woven leather.” – from Tod’s
