The stubbornness of Tod's patriarch, Diego Della Valle, has prevailed against all odds. The grandson of famous shoemaker, Filippo Della Valle, decided to take up the study of law in Bologna. However, he quickly discovered that he was far more interested in fashion and style than legal matters. The success story of his brand, Tod's, dates back to the 70s. The label's first product was their leather moccasins with rubber bumper soles, still famous to this day. In 1990, this shoe brand revolutionized its line-up by adding handbags to its portfolio. Over the years, the name “JP Tod's” was shortened to simply “Tod's”.
Perhaps Diego Della Valle's most brilliant move was the use of celebrities in his advertisements. It has made Tod's one of the world's leading fashion labels and attracted the attention of many fans, including Nicole Kidman. Even the British Royal Family is partial to the Italian's designs. Lady Diana only carried his handbags. Kate Middleton is now following in her mother-in-law's footsteps, carrying the re-released “Diana-Bag”. The brand has become a publicly traded company and the world's leading producer of luxury leather goods. The Tod's S.p.A. now manages such brands as Hogan, Fay and Roger Vivier. In total, the company is worth around 2.5 Billion euros.
Even today, Della Valle still actively engages in the design of his products that are all manufactured using traditional craftsmanship. This titan of shoemaking always ensures that only the most luxurious materials are used in the process, in particular the finest leather. The same materials are of course used in Tod's eyewear, giving them their unique look.
