A ‘60s vibe ran throughout the Tod’s collection as Walter Chiapponi ticked off Federico Fellini, Anna Magnani and Isabella Rossellini photographed by Robert Mapplethorpe, as well as films such as “La Dolce Vita”, “Rosemary’s Baby”, “Valley of the Dolls”, and “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” as inspirations.

The Spring/Summer 2022 collection he presented at Milan’s PAC (Contemporary Art Pavilion) was a play on short, neat, trapeze silhouettes, loosely reminiscent of the ’60s, retaining from the style of that time what he called “the severity and purity of lines, a refusal of decorative indulgence”.
Leather craft and alternative materials, such as linen and nylon, were spotlighted, used in accent pockets and accessories. Themes of crochet, utilitarian shirt dresses, feminine suiting, trenches, and windbreakers defined the collection, in neutral and bold colors, from true purple, blue, green, and muted peach.
There was also a strong spotlight on the accessories: sandals and sneakers with macro rubber soles, as well as loafers and ankle boots with elevated platforms. As for arm candies, the compact T Timeless handbags in classic hues such as brick and brown alongside notes of yellow, turquoise and bright red are to die for.
