Travelling look in italian brand. “The project of an entire wardrobe is a natural evolution of suggestions for men: it is a continuity solution with leather goods. This collection has been designed for a contemporary traveller that never forgets good taste and quality as high expressions of Made in Italy. This are values of our DNA.” With these words, Diego Della Valle summarizes the brand development in menswear. Within a few months Tod’s shops will sell total looks. Where is the innovation? After all, the group is not the first – and it won’t be the last – to extend to clothing a brand wich arises from accessories. The innovation stays in the fact that with this collection Tod’s places itself in a half-uncovered area of men’s fashion, that is in that luxury travel wear that at the moment offers very few alternatives. Basically, is a parallel dimension to the group’s heritage, perfectly in line with the reference target, an ideal masculine gentleman, which is also prone to a cool and young attitude that, in the “night” part, recalls a Beatles style.
