Della Valle's own Fay brand - he has created a big modern enterprise, a multinational operation that not only makes very chic and elegant items but also gives its workers pride, a purpose and a quality of life.
"Mr Della Valle wanted his employees to come to work and be really happy to do what they do,". The Tod's factory in Le Marche on the central Adriatic coast is a special environment. of 60,000sqm, including a grand 1500sqm headquarters.
Alongside a gym and auditorium for international lectures, the most notable feature of the headquarters is a bright, light-filled nursery fronted by sweetly smiling early childhood teachers. Open from 7.45am until 6.45pm every day, the nursery is available for Tod's workers to drop off their children to be looked after while they toil.
Many of the older artisans at Tod's worked with Diego Della Valle's father, Dorino, in the 1960s, are from Sant'Elpidio a Mare, the village in Le Marche region where the Della Valles were born and still live. People for Della Valle."are part of the project".
With this "foot on the floor", Della Valle created a billion-dollar business. He created two more brands - the urban shoe label Hogan and casual ready-to-wear Fay, acquired the French shoemaker, Roger Vivier and, currently, is relaunching of couture house Elsa Schiaparelli - with tastemakers du jour.
Having unveiled its second collection by Jefferson Hack, publisher of Dazed & Confused magazine, Hogan recently launched a collaboration with fashion stylist and long-time Marc Jacobs collaborator Katie Grand. Main line Tod's has also tapped fashion blogger Denni Elias of www.chicmuse.com for its Tod's Touch project, an online lifestyle magazine.
This is the 3rd Fay collection designed by Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi. In the past two collections Spring Summer 2012 and Fall Winter 2012 and there was an obvious hint of change and experimentation. While for the Spring Summer 2013 we see how the designers have been let free to make their own interpretation of the future style of Fay, bringing us back to the 60s but with materials of the 21st century.

The collection experiments with fabrics, prints and details reinventing Fay's iconic garnments with a unique stylistic flair. Short hemlines, vivid colors, crocodile prints for a Twiggy approved spring summer 2013.

Fay comes to meet us at the beginning of each season with a bike that seems at once extraordinarily linear, where cleaning of the cut, the silence of the natural elegance of colors and fabrics have the power to dazzle us with discretion. A simplicity that comes from a tailoring and precious ancient, a knowledge which is being renewed from time to time interpreting the needs of a man who lives in the present, but want to know, however elegant sports travel through time.
