The collection was enchanting with a palette of soothing colors that shone like the blazing decline of an autumn sun. With ochre, red, burgundy and khaki, it was reminiscentof a chic stroll in Central Park where Tod’s dressing room would be the setting for a vivid memory. For the men: plush trousers, cross-over suits, checked coats, and leather jackets.

A look immediately adopted by the front row where Annabelle Belmondo, Benjamin Voisin, Ncuti Watga and Sami Outalbali (yes of Sex Education fame) proved that the collection was immediately ready-to-wear.
