Tod’s Fall/Winter 2021 Collection Focuses On Classic Tailoring
Tod’s revealed its Fall/Winter collection with a short three-and-half-minute film. Creative director Walter Chaipponi furthered his reinterpretation of the brand’s classics by tapping young actor Lorenzo Zurzolo, to model the lineup as he prepares for an upcoming role.
Titled as #sevenT, the film captures Tod’s gentleman in his natural habitat, surrounded by nature, dressed head-to-toe in laid-back tailoring and practical outdoor pieces. The collection features trench coats, hunting jackets, ribbed jumpers, riding trousers in earthy tones.
The collection finds a strong character in the accessories like robust lace-ups with Norwegian stitching, ankle boots with Texan heels, multi-material sneakers and desert boots with enlarged gommini. The T is the recurring sign, made of metal and shown on belt buckles and loafers, covered in leather on soft, spacious and deconstructed bags, painstakingly made with minimum cuts, on practical and geometric briefcases with two umbrella or bottle straps. Here, the letter ‘T’ represents time, an expansion of possibilities, in life and style.

Chiapponi was appointed as the Creative Director of men’s and women’s collections of the brand last year. Diego Della Valle, President of Tod’s Group, said in a statement: “Walter Chiapponi is a talented Italian creative who knows and is able to combine Tod’s Italian lifestyle with a touch of modernity, without ever losing sight of the high quality and craftsmanship that represents the brand’s DNA. I welcome him and wish him well in his new role.”
