Here's to give a glimpse of Tod’s Fall/Winter 2014-2015 collection—coats with oversized look and relaxed sleeves, stylish boots, chic accespries, and cube bags!


Italian brand Tod's hosted a press preview of its fall/winter 2014- 2015 collection on July 31, at the Fairmont Hotel in Makati city.

The ready-to-wear line for women is Alessandra Facchinetti's second season as House designer.

Dubbed the "Italian Set," Facchinetti explores the graphic, feminine possibilities of leather for clothing, working it to a high, waxy shine, almost as though it were lacquered.

On other occasions, as when accentuating the pleats of a skirt, it can look as glossy as silk duchesse satin.

The aesthetic is based on a combination of leather with jacquard, wool, mink or cashmere to create a timeless, luxurious, sophisticated style.

As with all things Tod’s, there is a merging of past and future, which in this case results in a wardrobe for a modern urban existence.

Perhaps most significantly, Facchinetti’s vision for the brand showcases how Made in Italy possesses a contemporary spirit, as well as being rooted in heritage and artisanal skill.

Forms are casual, with lowered pockets and soft proportions, even in the constructed garments.

A military theme also runs throughout, evident in the Montgomery duffle coats, capes, trench coats, half-belted cabans and uniform-style leather skirt.

But the effect is decidedly elegant, rather than utilitarian.

Meanwhile, the Tod's collection for men this season sees the spirit of Made in Italy, so central to the philosophy of the House, expressed through a fusion of artisanal heritage and new technology.

This is a collection for a modern gentleman—a man on the move who needs a wardrobe that is stylish and functional.

The look is one of timeless style; however, the appeal is not only a matter of appearance, but also of feel and touch. The clothing in the collection reflects the Tod's tradition of quality, elegance and refined modernity.

The Tod's customer values good taste and tradition, but his attitude is thoroughly contemporary.
