Autumn Winter 2011 Tod’s Women’s Collection

The new Tod’s Autumn Winter 2011 collection, tailored for a working woman who desires items that are timeless, chic and stylish, takes its inspirational approach from the eternal elegance of the architecture of Louis Kahn, whose simple structures and striking lines invite an interplay of light and shade. The new collection echoes Kahn’s approach by presenting functional forms in a modern and technically innovative way, combining the Tod’s trademark merge of classic and contemporary.
The inspirational mix of color ranging from chromatic greys, naturals and nudes highlighted by strong accents of cherry red and deep teal, emphasises the idea of slick modernity balanced with eternal warmth that is witty, unpretentious and stands for the heritage of a beautifully made product.
BAGS
Tod’s presents its iconic D Bag Luxury, an evolution of the classic D Bag in a super-luxurious hide, featuring a full leather lining. Created with the highest levels of craftsmanship and technical expertise and in the most beautiful leathers, the D Bag is soft, with a hand-cut finish and a contemporary silhouette ranging in jewelled palette of royal and cornflower blues and cherry red. Created with precious leathers in an innovative yet traditional manner, it is a genuinely iconic product that is the best that Made in Italy can offer.
The Bags collection is all about colour and light-heartedness, infused with the best skins available to offer pristine structure and intriguing combinations.
There are new shoulder bag styles that are more rectangular in shape, offered in various sizes and materials such as leather, suede, and precious alligator that features a stylish metallic buckle closure.
A large melange handbag in fox is also a highlight for the new season, ranging in natural hues of lavender and sand.
The captivating selection of precious two tone wristlet clutches in exotic croc and lizard can suit any woman’s daily wardrobe just like a wallet, without sacrificing style, featured in dual colors of purple, red or canary yellow against chocolate brown.
Other notable clutches are the large wallet style version in playful royal blue, sand and noir pony skin.



                                   

                                                 

                                   

                                           

                                       

                                       

                           


 

                                       

                               

SHOES
This season’s new styles observe a playful mix of classic and modern. The new ankle boot in brushed calfskin has a simple, elegant shape and features two buckles and a thick 10cm heel. The striking black colour of the leather shows off the line of the shoe effectively.
There is a Special by Specialist caramel suede ankle boot that features chic sheepskin lining, decorative side buckles and a stellar square 10cm heel, demonstrating Tod’s leather know-how, innovation and style.
This season’s must-have leopard print pony skin ankle boot offers wrap closure, thick heel, and the Tod’s rubber pebbled sole.
A to-the-knee high heel boot in a palette of rich browns offers a play of tone on tone materials such as leather and suede.
A range of classic style pumps in croc with the playful Tod’s Gommino sole in new autumn palettes renders this style contemporary with a twist. 
A lady-like pointy loafer style pump with this season’s signature high & thick heels that has a variety of leathers and precious skins.
The notable pointy slip-on flat loafer with striped or leopard print pony skin detail in brushed calfskin is one of this collection’s favourite pieces.
Other highlights include the iconic Winter Gommino with an internal plateau sole entirely covered in leather, an ankle boot, featuring a lace up closure and a 10cm heel; and two styles of motor boots, with simple, clean lines, but with a rich and sophisticated construction.




SPECIALIST BY SPECIALISTS
As a way of demonstrating the creative process that goes into the development of each Tod’s style, Specialist by Specialists takes iconic pieces from the collection and re-imagines them, emphasizing their line and construction.
At the root of Tod’s lies the know-how and experience of crafting hand-stitched leather and vegetable rubber together and the Specialist by Specialists illustrates how knowledge of the art of leather that goes back three generations can inspire real creative experimentation
READY TO WEAR
The new Tod’s ready-to-wear collection is inspired by a Fifties’ “Teddy Boy” look, with a heavy emphasis on outerwear. The featured key pieces include timeless items such as the motorcycle jacket, the trench and a soft tailored blazer, which have been updated in stylish buttery leathers, double face cashgora (cashmere and angora) and high tech weather proof fabrics in combinations of suede and leather, felt and calfskin, shearling trimmed lapels, fused rubberized tape seaming and a variety of furs.
The colour palette ranges from shades of black, with touches off whites for the natural furs, to oatmeal brown, with strong punches of deep winter red and moody blue.
