Tod's No_code Autumn/Winter 13-14 'Colour Theory'

2-TD335_9 The autumn/winter 2013-14 Tod’s No_Code capsule collection for men and women combines Tod’s heritage of Italian shoe making with the cutting-edge vision of London magazine editor Jefferson Hack. There are five styles for men and four for women based on the Oxford shoe, desert boot, Chelsea boot and – new for this season – the buckle-strap monk shoe. All are constructed using quality leathers and soft suedes in a range of eclectic seasonal colours and patterns. The unique and innovative rubber soles feature a distinctive white line of inserted “micro” that makes them extremely light and functional. The autumn/winter 2013-14 collection is called “Colour Theory” and sees the collaboration with LA-based photographer and artist Sam Falls to express the energy and spirit that characterises No_Code. The ethos of Tod’s No_Code is to combine timelessness and extraordinary craftsmanship with influences from the worlds of contemporary music, art and cinema. Jefferson Hack explains: “For this season’s imagery, artist Sam Falls has used a technique that combines the analogue with the digital – painting over photographs and manipulating natural processes in post-production. This synergy between the old and the new is an analogy of what I do with Tod’s No_Code: working with the heritage and ‘Made in Italy’ that Tod’s stands for and taking it into the 21st century with my approach to creativity and storytelling.” In Tod’s No_Code, the brand’s heritage values – the fine quality, attention to detail and authenticity that is the essence of “Made in Italy” – become perfectly allied to a modern, refined and versatile style. Born from the desire to develop a perfect shoe for both men and women, Tod’s No_ Code breaks with convention, respects no boundaries between night and day, and is untethered to the codes of formal dress or casual attire. The Tod’s No_Code collection is available from selected Tod’s boutiques wor”ldwide. The collection is also available at www.tods.com, www.theluxer.com, www.net-a-porter.com, www.mrporter.com, and www.mytheresa.com.
