Tod's - Womenswear Show Autumn/Winter 2015/16 in Milan with interview

Thirty looks for Tod’s fourth collection created by the designer Alessandra Facchinetti, inspired this season by the Memphis artistic movement and the universe of sport. All the essentials of the wardrobe are there. Presented in the 18th century salons, the silhouette is elegant and clean, highlighting the Italian savoir-faire. An urban collection, with skirts decorated by geometric designs, from graphic knitwear, to perforated leather. Leather is the central theme, worn from head to toe, or by little touches hemming a piece like stitching on the clothes. We noticed a white shirt in leather with a great suppleness, imitating lace, worn with straight leg trousers in midnight-blue suede or a powdered beige trench coat in smooth leather. Detailing of zips is invited onto the dresses, tops and short jackets. The moccasins with grooved soles and the bags complete the silhouette of this accessories label that from this point forward will be featuring more and more in the Prêt-à-Porter universe. Interview :Alessandra Facchinetti : Graphic and sporty feeling absolutely because this is something that is reflected in the DNA of the house and the attitude of the Tod’s girl, but I work a lot on her attitude that was the main trend you know in my mind to really keep very strongly her vision, her way to live, her way to do the things, the way she dresses, because at the end of the day she’s very casual, she’s very fresh, and free, the only thing that she puts on is her red lipstick, that sometimes she won’t even put on just let go and enjoy life There were a lot of details that were inspired by Sottsass, which is from the Memphis period, so all the geometric elements they are articulated together which were the main things that I liked a lot to work with. The perforation and then the stitches which come from the work that we usually do on the bags with that kind of stitches that now I transform into real stitches for ready to wear, so I always like to combine the classic stitches with something more contemporary and this exactly the work that I did.
