A Look Inside Tod’s And Photographer Tim Walker’s Milan Exhibition

Italian fashion house Tod’s has partnered with renowned photographer Tim Walker to host an exhibition that explores the brand’s rich heritage and craftsmanship. It’ll be open to the public from 20-22 April during Salone del Mobile at Le Cavallerizze, Leonardo da Vinci National Museum of Science and Technology. The exhibition will then travel around the world until the end of the year.

The family-owned company, which is headquartered in the Marche region of Italy, is known for producing classic leather accessories and elegantly understated ready-to-wear styles.

Titled ‘The Art of Craftsmanship’, the exhibition–temporarily situated in Milan’s National Museum of Science and Technology–will spotlight some of Tod’s most sought-after pieces, including its famed Di bag (the simple yet practical holdall is named after the late Princess Diana), and Gommino driving shoes through Walker’s collection of quirky portraits and visually striking films.

The London-based photographer, who travelled to Tod’s headquarters and met with the team of its skilled artisans, showcases the luxury label’s timeless designs alongside various tools and hardware objects in a compelling way.

“I spent a fascinating day at the Tod’s factory where I was able to witness the craftsmanship and skills that go into the products for myself, along with my set designer, Gary Card, and we both drew inspiration from this,” Walker said in a press statement.
