Modern and essential silhouettes meet Tod’s artisanal tradition creating touches of colors, sartorial excellence and sophisticated proportions. Walter Chiapponi continues to update the Tod’s lexicon, working on a series of urban uniforms where traditional masculine codes were reinterpreted through a feminine lens, softened by a hint of sensuality and a touch of the artisanal.
Silhouettes are kept simple with an echo of ’90s minimalism and androgyny; what gives character to the exercise were the emphasized volumes and the accent on rich, tactile fabrics. Chiapponi explaineS that three-dimensional surfaces give depth and add a chiaroscuro effect to the perception of a shape. Adding to the chic/relaxed feel, he uses raw-edged denim spliced from vertical fringed stripes for a long trench coat belted with a matching sash.
Chiapponi pushes his experiment further, giving surfaces a twist of modernity and working on illusory effects.
