Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Last night, fashion house Tod’s announced the launch of the book Aria D’Italia with a cocktail at Padiglione d’Arte Contemporanea (PAC) in Milan. In attendance were names like Micol Sabbadini, Alessandro Magno, Cinderella Battesan, Francesco Vezzoli, and Gracie Daneledes, who gathered to celebrate the publication detailing a love for Italian culture.
Coinciding with the introduction of its latest footwear style, the W.G.—a new take on the brand classic Winter Gommino—the gorgeous book dives into the essence of Italian values and lifestyle. Through its eight chapters (Joy, Boldness, Passion, Heritage, Pleasure, Timeless, Craftsmanship, and Imagination), the visually-driven publication takes readers on a journey through the passion and care that pervades every aspect of life in the country—qualities imbued in the sturdy but classic lace-up leather boot.
Featured in the pages of Aria D’Italia are a series of vibrant lifestyle images, captured by Guido Taroni and depicting a cast of smartly Tod’s-clad individuals partaking in games of cards, harvesting fruits and building bouquets of fresh flowers, cooking, and merrymaking over beverages. With words by Paola Jacobbi, the publication also features bits from creative personalities like the owner of boutique hotel La Foleira, Germma Richard, Aldo & Francesco Sersale, the owners of Le Sirenuse, and more.
Joining the house’s previous publications celebrating Italian lifestyle, Italian Touch and Italian Portraits, Aria D’Italia is available for purchase immediately online and internationally in stores beginning in February 2023.
