Leather weather

For his debut collection, Tod’s creative director Matteo Tamburini unveils a new chapter for the Italian label. Still deeply rooted in Italian lifestyle and the excellence of product quality, Tod’s presents a contemporary collection where leather takes center stage.

In this FW24/25 collection, the palette favors the natural tones of leather and enhances the handmade finishes of craftsmanship.

Following the Laboratori Ansaldo of Teatro alla Scala and the Pavilion of Contemporary Art, Tod’s selects one of Milan’s iconic settings as a backdrop for the FW24/25 collection fashion show: the depot of the historic Darsena trams, a symbol of the energy and movement that animate the city.

The duality between urban life and leisure, formal and informal, tradition and innovation permeate the collection, characterized by essential and sophisticated pieces: the leather Trench, the masculine Coat in fabric or double-faced wool, the oversized Field Jacket, the wrapping Cloak trimmed in leather.

Tailored wool twill suits feature cigarette trousers with large turn-ups and collarless or single-breasted jackets borrowed from the male wardrobe. Cashmere or wool and silk knitwear layer cardigans upon cardigans, renewing the twin set concept.

The new distinctive feature of Tod’s footwear is a subtle metal band that reinterprets iconic models like the Gommino and the loafer, while the Yorky version of the Gommino is enriched with thin leather fringes that create movement with every step. Motorcycle-inspired boots become feminine, thanks to brushed leathers.
