TOD’S WOMEN’S COLLECTION AUTUMN/WINTER 2014-15

THE READY-TO-WEAR COLLECTION

The Tod's Women's Ready-to-Wear Collection for autumn/winter 2014-15 sees the second season of designs for the House by Alessandra Facchinetti.
Forms are casual, with lowered pockets and soft proportions, even in the constructed garments. Patches and saddlery backs create a sense of craftsmanship, and jackets take centre stage: peacoats, cabans, bomber jackets, cagoules and double-breasted jackets all demonstrate a continuous dialogue between sportswear and couture.
A military theme runs throughout, evident in the Montgomery duffle coats, capes, trench coats, half-belted cabans and uniform-style leather skirt. But the effect is decidedly elegant, rather than utilitarian.
Checks are applied to technical fabrics and also appear as jacquard in wool and silk. Checks feature in the stitching, in the mink, and also become openwork – resembling a subtle Madras – on the pony skin overcoat. Carpet-style geometry also features in an important pattern, taking the form of an unusual all-over print on a midnight blue, ice or Bordeaux ground. Lozenge-form patterns suggest optical illusions, decorating bags as well as clothing, creating a virtual jacquard.
