Tod’s calls the partnership a “strong and sophisticated fusion,” in a statement. These two seem like a match made in Italian fashion heaven—with leather bomber jackets, hoodies, and bow-detailed driving shoes for luxury shoppers everywhere.
“I believe in beautiful things, well made, in sophisticated elegance, in precious materials,” Dell’Acqua said in a behind-the-scenes video. “Tod’s is a confirmation of Italian excellence…For Tod’s, I brought together cool metropolitan and Italian craftsmanship. The physical touch and care over finishes are essential, they confer character and identity.”
Tod’s Factory will serve as an ongoing series of collaborations with designers, influencers, and artists that are invited to give their own take on “Tod’s DNA.” The first collection by Dell’Acqua will be available to shop in stores this week, as well as at a special pop-up shop in the Madison Avenue and Rodeo Drive stores on November 19th, and online at tods.com.
