It has a sporty feel to it, but it’s also feminine and chic – what I would call a beautiful marriage between the brand’s heritage and Alessandra Facchinetti’s own sensitivity. Simple, unstructured, light, playful. Summer elegance. I see some cobblestone streets in the picture, too, winding through Italian coastal villages, and a dazzling sun that you rather want to feel caressing your cheeks and shoulders than take cover from.
I loved Alessandra Facchinetti’s first collection for Tod’s. And I’ve always considered her one of the women designers who can bring something new, refined and highly identifiable to the fashion scene. I hope she will succeed to do that at the Italian fashion house.
