One might wonder if Tod’s Creative Director Walter Chiapponi took in a few showings of Annie Hall while working on Fall 2020, his first collection at the brand since being appointed to the top role in October. A ’70s influence was threaded throughout, including shaggy fur-lined coats and modish hemlines, but it was fashion’s favorite heroine who really called out to us. Clingy turtlenecks tucked into low-slung trousers, and skirts of all lengths were toughened up with the leather outerwear you expect from Tod’s. Chiapponi rethought Ms. Hall’s iconic silhouette too: Her signature suiting and necktie were updated via slouchy separates and knotted necklines worn at the throat. In short, it’s clothing destined for the smart woman’s 9-to-9 (whatever that may entail).
