Tod's presents an iconic look for 2011 Salone Del Mobile
April 11, 2011: Luxury brand Tod’s hosted a cocktail party at its Via Della Spiga flagship boutique to celebrate Milan’s 2011 Salone del Mobile, at which the brand exhibited a specially commissioned piece of contemporary art and a dedicated store and window display of the Tod’s iconic Marlin Hyannisport shoe.
To reflect the brand’s worldwide vision, artist Felice Limosani created an enormous rotating globe made from more than 14,000 wooden pencils. The continents are made from erasers in the Tod’s orange shade - an artistic metaphor representing the rubber ‘pebbles’ found on the sole of the iconic Tod’s Gommino shoe.
“This piece reflects the Tod’s World, which naturally rotates between design and art,” says artist Felice Limosani.
In celebration of the event, the Tod’s Marlin Hyannisport is presented throughout the boutique with a dedicated display that highlights its iconic global style. In the softest supple leather that adapts perfectly to the shape of one’s foot, the unexpected balance of rubber and precious materials results in a state of the art, flexible and ultra-light shoe. Skilled artistry and detailed hand stitching in natural hemp results in an impeccable, unique Tod’s design.
