The Tod's SS13 Collection

TodsMenSS13-Villa Necchi (2) It is always such a pleasure to attend the Tod's presentations in Milan. Not only because Villa Necchi, the 1930's villa where its held, is such a beautiful place so perfect to relax between shows but because their PR team is so incredibly nice and helpful.
The SS13 collection found inspiration in the Mediterranean landscape for the colour palette. Everything was vibrant – the hot reds, yellows and oranges of the sun, the deep blues of the sea, the lush greens of the vegetation. And they really get you in the mood for the summer season. They are just the right pop of colour for a subtle estival outfit.
As Tod's often does, they continued to update their classics – new colours for the gominni, innovation in materials looking for style and comfort on their contemporary shoes. Some of my highlights include the new line of loafers with coloured all-rubber soles. You can't even imagine how comfortable they must be! The luggage is another of their strong points. The suede shopping bags and croc carry-ons are as luxurious as they are practical – a great investment. But I must say my personal favourites continue to be the ultra-soft suede jackets. I picture myself wearing them over a white t-shirt with light blue jeans and creme Supergas à la Steve McQueen. A man can dream, right?
