Tod’s catwalk show report A/W 2015 in Milan
Alessandra Facchinetti’s autumn/winter collection for Tod’s has subtle sophistication written all over it. A harmonious blend between classic cuts and silhouettes and modern metallic zippers, Facchinetti has made this collection wearable come autumn.
Her abundant and clever use of leather ranged from biker jackets to classic trench coats to a brown leather dress. Whip stitching was prominently seen on jackets, skirts and even shoes.
Although most of the collection was simple and straightforward, a few pieces did catch our eye. A navy peplum top with a geometric pattern on the neck and arms belted on a pair of trousers or the blush pink top with peplum worn on a metallic skirt were hits.
Clean-cut cropped jackets, high-waisted skirts, leather coats, printed pantsuits were tastefully cosmopolitan. Fur stoles draped elegantly to balance off the bright prints and belts worn high on the hips were added accessories to piece the whole look together.
Amongst other accessories we saw bags in all shapes with metal embellished loafers. Keeping the collection to a bare minimum, Facchinetti did away with the usual pomp that surrounds a show. Come autumn we have already set our sights on the classic trench and the cropped leather jacket.
