Runway Report: Tod’s SS19

Given the heatwave that hit Milan during fashion week, the Tods collection was perfectly placed to have us lusting after spring/summer 2019 already.

There was a decidedly preppy feel to proceedings, a little retro in places with a core palette of 1970s mustard yellow, bitter chocolate and tan. Injections of cobalt blue and blush pink were used across fine, butter-soft leather jumpsuits, shirt dresses, cigarette pants and sports jackets. Hems were nonchalantly rolled up at the ankle, or elbow giving a relaxed feel.
Accessories were smart and chic – the Tods signature loafer was there, this season bedecked with tassels and subtle fringing. Boxy suede bags came with interesting leather chain-like straps or some serious silver hardwear. Monogrammed belts cinched waists while cute neckerchiefs completed this summer-in-the-city look.
Light summer tailoring in chino-like tones and loose-fit denim added to the casual classic theme, creating a wearable collection with the realities of Europe’s unpredictable summer weather in mind.
