What happens when two fashion icons collide? The Tod’s and Chiara Ferragni's special collection, that’s what. And they’re both Italian powerhouses, so it’s doppio the style this season.

For Summer 2017, Tod’s and Chiara Ferragni offer a modern interpretation of Italian excellence; a partnership that gives life to the digital project #ChiaraLovesTods. Limited edition accessories take centre stage with subtle colours and sophisticated lines that make this a collection of must-haves.

Meet the Tod’s tastemaker

At the fashion forefront, Chiara Ferragni needs no introduction. The Italian-born, America-based businesswoman-turned-designer is an all-class fashion influencer, and she’s one of the originals.

With a global following of 9.9 million on Instagram, 1.2 million likes on Facebook and more than 14 million page views per month on her website, The Blonde Salad, the fashionista is the perfect fit for the latest Tod’s collaborative shoe and handbag drop.

Of-the-moment colour with Chiara

Bringing her finger-on-the-style-pulse touch to the brand’s signature Double T Gommino driving moccasin and the mini Gommino bag, Ferragni prescribes a perfect couture-pink to the bag, while the moccasin is made-up in a super soft beige suede.

It’s this freshness of colour that makes both the bag and shoes an easy addition to the off-duty summer wardrobe of the most style-savvy woman, whether on a European jaunt to the countryside or perusing the local boutiques of the city back home.

Stay stylish with an iconic shoe

With the fashion-fiend Ferragni on board, Tod’s Gommino driving shoes continue their furore and retain an interminable luxury that has seen the must-have loafer step from the Tod’s atelier and onto the hot little heel of the chic, modern woman for decades.

The #ChiaraLovesTods Gommino shoe is handcrafted in Tod’s buttery suede with the Double T buckle in branded metal acting as a hallmark of the quality that is intrinsically Tod’s. And the devil is the detail; hand stitching and iconic rubber pebble outsole setting these fashionable icons apart from other ephemeral loafers. The Gommino is a wardrobe investment piece, that’ll bring you stylish returns.

‘It’ girl meets must-have bag

Ferragni oozes sophistication. And the ‘It’ girl shows just how easily the Gommino bag – now one of today’s luxury must-haves – pairs well with everything, and how it can be taken everywhere due to its compact size.

A cute floral dress, or a billowy blouse with a washed-out denim skirt, the Gommino in a Chiara-pink won’t overpower a summer look, but rather adds to this sense of effortless chic.

And like the loafer, the bag boasts Tod’s unrelenting commitment to elegant craftsmanship. Wrapped in smooth leather, an all-over zip closure, maxi zip pull, twin handles and removable strap are just some of its undeniable features. But, it’s the raven-hued rubber pebble details that make this mini Gommino bag big on style, and unmistakeably Tod’s.

A new classic to the iconic house of Tod's, this special collection by Chiara Ferragni is available at select Tod's boutiques worldwide and at www.tods.com.
