At the forefront of design houses these days is one thing: the fresh eyes and the inspiration of youth! This idea prompted luxury leather shoe brand Tod’s to launch their innovative, youth-led design studio Tod’s-Factory, whose designers came up with the Tod’s x Moncler Palm Angels collaboration. Catering to both classic and contemporary audiences alike, their new shoe drop is highly anticipated this season, and for good reason: they’re simply iconic.
Tod’s is back and better than ever as the brand takes on a modern edge through their shoe collaboration with streetwear brand Palm Angels. Offering a genderless reinterpretation of their iconic Gommino loafer and W.G. boot styles, these eclectic shoes are worn interchangeably by both sexes, giving Tod’s a fresh, up-to-date feel.
The new Gommino loafers are a recontextualised take on a workwear favourite that is utterly unique. Consisting of Tod’s classic neutral-toned driver loafers, the Palm Angels influence is felt in the bright yellow and red flames painted on the toe and tongue of the shoe. Coming in both black and tan, these shoes are sure to make a statement all on their own, one that is cool, trendy, and chic!
Similarly, the W.G. boots are updated for a new generation through their dual-toned design. Coming in two palettes, the black, brown, and tan boots are the perfect autumn shoe, while the all-cream ones are your next go-to neutral for a monochromatic, all-white look. Elegant, sleek, yet ultra-modern, these boots are a must-have this season!
This collaboration fuses Tod’s classic European feel with the world of American sport, culminating in a classic yet sportif aesthetic – which is on trend cross-culturally this season. And with Naomi Campbell as the face of the collaboration, what could be more on point than her striking flame loafers contrasting brilliantly against her retro, 80s-inspired look?
Though vintage in essence, these shoes feel like something Billie Eilish would rock – which breathes new life and inspiration into the classic brand for current generations who may be hearing about Tod’s for the first time.
Worn by both men and women, Tod’s new unisex line of shoes are sure to make waves this season. Modern, edgy, and beautifully made, the Tod x Palm Angels collaboration is one to be remembered.
This partnership translates the message of lifestyle and the great quality of Italian craftsmanship into the contemporary language of new generations who love to celebrate the active spirit of American sports. T
