For its Spring 2015 collection, Tod’s re-created a pristinely manicured Italian garden of box hedges, sculpted topiaries and chalky white pebbles, the kind of outdoor space that’s beautifully designed but a destination for relaxation.
A crisp take on “sophisticated sport,” according to the press notes, the lineup featured tidy, tailored shapes in a fresh, pleasing palette of white, ivory, muted lavender and emerald green with a major focus on the house’s bread and butter, leather. The spiffiest, sportiest of the mix were paper-thin, perforated A-line tank dresses — easy in cut, advanced in technical execution and pretty with floral inlays.
The jewelry accents featured necklaces and cuffs that set small slabs of polished marble amid large crystals in sculptural swirls of gold wire. The designer reported that Tod’s will be selling it next spring.
