Italian Art Inspired By India
I love the fact that European fashion brands are always going beyond the realm of collections and couture by taking on different projects of social and cultural significance. That makes them so much more real, less frivolous (as many perceive them to be) and, of course, so much more appealing to us fashion lovers.
Tod’s is a perfect example of this. More than just a fashion brand, it has managed to prove itself as a noteworthy cultural player and a patron of the arts. It has been a strong global representative of ‘Made in Italy’.
In the past, the brand has collaborated on arts programmes with Whitechapel Gallery in London, the Pac in Milan, the Moca in LA, the Teatro alla Scala in Milan and, who can forget, the restoration of the Coliseum in Rome.
Tod’s brought its passion for art and culture to India with a recent exhibition of Italian photographer Maimouna Guerresi in New Delhi, together with the leading photography gallery Tasveer.
The essence of Italian art and culture is showcased in this exhibition though the artist’s striking portraits, inspired by India and Italy.
Maimouna’s works reflect the exquisite craftsmanship of Tod’s and hence, the spirits of both these names complement each other so perfectly.
If that was not enough, visitors can even discover the new Tod’s D.D bag, a reinvented version of the iconic D bag.
Italian art in India, by an Italian artist inspired by India, in collaboration with an Italian brand that is nothing less than iconic: it doesn’t get any more international than this.
At UrbanEye.in, all we can say is…BELLISSIMO….
