Tod’s unveiled its Fall/Winter 2021 collection through a visual story, a film titled ‘’#sevenT’’. ‘’Seven’’ like the days of the week, ‘’T’’ for Tod’s but also for time.

Creative director Walter Chiapponi furthered his reinterpretation of the classics, exploring Tod’s lifestyle in contact with nature. Tailoring was seen through a relaxed lens. The artisanal nature of the product was the highest expression of style. Warm, earthy tones were used on tweeds, wools and sturdy cottons that reference a natural camouflage with the landscape.
The elements of this story were the pillars of the wardrobe: the trench coat, the shirt-jacket, the hunting jacket and the field jacket, riding pants, ribbed sweaters, the college sweatshirt. A new meaning was created in the combination of garments: contradicting formality with unexpected combinations. The portrait in the making of an Italian gentleman took shape, cosmopolitan in his absolute freedom.
The collection found a strong character in the accessories: robust lace-ups with Norwegian stitching, ankle boots with Texan heels, multi-material sneakers and desert boots with enlarged gommini.
The T was the recurring sign, made of metal and shown on belt buckles and loafers, covered in leather on soft, spacious and deconstructed bags, painstakingly made with minimum cuts, on practical and geometric briefcases with two umbrella or bottle straps.
