After a series of critically acclaimed collections, Italian designer Alessandra Facchineti returns with the Tod’s Spring 2016 ready-to-wear offering, which is based on an imaginary Tod’s rock band. She departs from her ultra polished aesthetic and opts for a funky one.
Founders: Dorino Della Valle and Filippo Della Valle
Owner: Tod’s Group
Designer: Alessandra Facchinetti
Year Established: 1978
Spring 2016 Inspiration: Rock and roll.
Star Pieces: A perforated leather skirt with rivets; a white and blue striped jumpsuit; a leather jacket with a collage that forms a guitar pattern; and all the footwear.
The Middle Eastern Sale: Lovers of statement accessories will fall for the python loafers embellished with a leather star, crystals, and studs. The new Tod’s slipper will offer a fresh alternative to the Hermès one that has become somewhat of a gimmick in the GCC.
