A History of Leather at Tod's

A History of Leather at Tod's

Founded nearly 100 years ago in 1920, Tod's is best known in the Italian fashion scene as the luxury line that produces shoes and accessories as well as a ready-to-wear collection that draws on the same aesthetics. The brand, which focuses on Italian classics and updated leathers has currently been without a womenswear creative director for multiple seasons. Here's everything you need to know about the show.

Hints of Leopard

Leopard, a trend seen on the runway at labels ranging from Marc Jacobs to Kate Spade, was prevalent here at Tod's too. It came in the form of coats, tops, skirts as well as chunky bags.

The Updated Trench

Here, the heritage trench coat silhouette was taken and updated in new shades of leather as well as classic fabrics.

Black and Brown

The subdued color palette of black and caramel made an appearance. Whether in the form of trimming or leather panels on coats – or even just matched up between skirts and blouses, the slightly unconventional palette collided.

Big Bags

If there's one takeaway from the Tod's runway – it's that investing in bigger bags is your best bet. The label showed a collection full of totes, bucket bags and some bags that were doubled up (models carried two at once) in larger sizes. The top handle carryalls looked like they were weekend-away size.

Emerald Green

Another trend we've spotted far and wide has been emerald green. And Tod's delivered it in lush leather coats, skirts and dresses plus sporty puffers and slick leather trousers.
