Gone are the days when Tod’s was solely synonymous with private jets and luxury beyond the reach of the everyday woman. With the arrival of Matteo Tamburini as Creative director last December, the brand unveiled its Fall/Winter 2024 collection, marking a distinct shift towards a more accessible and practical vision of luxury.

Tamburini’s debut for Tod’s, staged amidst Milan’s historic tram depot, exuded a sense of timeless elegance that seamlessly blended with practicality. The setting itself echoed the collection’s core message: luxurious pieces designed for the modern woman on the go. Whether navigating bustling city streets on a tram or stepping off a private plane, these garments were crafted for effortless wear and timeless style.

Outerwear stood out as a particular highlight. The dramatic double leather and wool masculine coat in a faded blue hue, worn by Irina Shayk, perfectly exemplified the collection’s marriage of elegance and functionality. Tamburini, inspired by Milan‘s “bourgeois and industrial mix” and the “dynamism of the 1980s and 1990s,” infused the collection with a modern edge while staying true to the brand’s heritage.

Beyond outerwear, the collection offered elevated staples like renewed twin sets featuring layered cashmere and wool knits, alongside pastel-colored vests crafted from boiled cashmere. Tailored trousers with large turn-ups were paired with doubled-up men’s shirts and single-breasted jackets reminiscent of a Western aesthetic.

Tamburini didn’t shy away from reimagining Tod’s signature pieces. He subtly updated the iconic gommino loafers with thin leather fringes and presented a range of brushed leather equestrian boots, showcasing the brand’s expertise in leather craftsmanship. The Di Bag received a refresh with inverted handles and supersized volumes, while new logo details – a small geometric metal band and a discreet “T” – signaled a new chapter for the brand.

This collection marked a bold step forward for Tod’s, embracing a wider audience without compromising on quality and craftsmanship. While the runway presentation presented a fantastical portrayal of office-bound commuters, the essence of the collection resonated deeply: sophisticated pieces that empower women to navigate the world with confidence and ease. The subtle touches of “oddness” – double-collared shirts, hyper-break pants, and luxurious leather details – offered a welcome refresh for the brand, ensuring it remains relevant and exciting for the modern woman.
