HIGH NOTE: Tod’s chairman Diego Della Valle brought a healthy dose of Italian charm to Tokyo Tuesday night, when he hosted an event to promote the group’s new partnership with La Scala. Celebrities including ballet dancer Yasuyuki Shuto and actress Hisako Manda mingled at the brand’s Omotesando flagship. Top fashion editors then moved to a nearby restaurant, Two Rooms, for an exclusive dinner. Della Valle expressed his admiration for the country — despite its less than encouraging economic situation. “If I were 30 years old, I’d come here for a few years,” he said. “It’s a civil place, full of energy. I like it a lot. There’s a nice culture of elegant living.”
Tod’s La Scala celebration is currently on the road to Beijing, where the brand will stage a theatrical performance and host a large event for both press and celebrities on Friday.
