MILAN — Tod’s and Mr Porter have teamed again on a capsule collection for summer to be unveiled today on the online store. The lineup includes 27 pieces of footwear and seasonal vacation wear designed by Andrea Incontri, creative director of the Italian luxury brand’s men’s wear.
To mark the launch, Mr Porter and Tod’s will celebrate the collection with a co-hosted poolside reception at Milan’s storied Villa Necchi Campiglio on June 17 during Men’s Fashion Week.
The collection comprises relaxed looks in a color palette of bright blues, reds and whites across a range of ready-to-wear, accessories and footwear, centered on Tod’s staple Gommino riding shoe. Key pieces include suede bomber jackets in various shades of blue; a suede leather tote with rubber pebble detailing at the edges, and a range of printed swim shorts with coordinated statement camp collar shirts, reminiscent of a Fifties’ pool party in Italy.
“Since launching the Tod’s ready-to-wear business in 2015, we have wanted to work on an exclusive collection to celebrate the brand’s Italian roots and give our customer a collection which exudes the Mediterranean summertime, which Andrea has done so wonderfully,” said Fiona Firth, buying director at Mr Porter. “Tod’s is one of the most time-honored luxury houses, and we’re thrilled to be continuing this great partnership, giving our global customer base something special, which they can’t find anywhere else.”
“Unparalleled in the market, Mr Porter is a global platform featuring the most interesting of the best in each category for the man who is already knowledgeable and confident in his opinions,” said Incontri. “With a common thread in brands, drawing together fine quality, craftsmanship and creativity, Mr Porter has the confidence of their already exceptionally savvy clients to venture beyond their norm — the Tod’s man as such both now and future.”
