Tod’s Appoints Matteo Tamburini as New Creative Director

On December 1, Italian luxury brand Tod’s announced the appointment of Matteo Tamburini as its new creative director. Tamburini will oversee the brand’s women’s and men’s collections, and his first Tod’s Fall/Winter 2024-25 women’s collection will be presented at Milan Fashion Week in February 2024.

About this appointment, Tamburini said that the brand “is so closely tied to my origins and memories. I identify myself with the brand’s values and the continuous pursuit of high quality and style it has undertaken until now, and I look forward to contributing with my expertise.”

Tamburini is an Italian designer born in 1982 in Urbino, a small city in the mountains of central Italy. He has extensive experience in the European luxury sector, having previously worked for Rochas, Schiaparelli, and Emilio Pucci. Since 2017, he has been with Bottega Veneta, where until recently he designed the brand’s ready-to-wear collections.

Tod’s CEO Diego Della Valle called him “a talented creative” and said in the statement that Tamburini’s “modern vision of high quality and Italian lifestyle will definitely bring added value to our brand.” He also added, “Tamburini will develop a creative team of highly skilled people with an in-depth understanding of the luxury world”.

The brand’s former creative chief, Walter Chiapponi, left the company this summer and was appointed creative director of Blumarine early last month.

Tod’s Group announced a 14.3% increase in sales during the first three quarters of the year, with Europe contributing significantly to the growth despite a decline in China’s Q3 sales. The company further revealed that all of its brands experienced double-digit sales growth, driven by high demand from both local and foreign customers.
