As a brand, Tod’s values timeless elegance and style, so it’s no surprise that they’ve chosen to celebrate modern-day icons who embody a classic aesthetic in a new book, Timeless Icons, set to be released in January. Featuring Brigitte Bardot, Lauren Hutton, Steve McQueen, Sean Connery, Cate Blanchett, Gisele Bündchen, George Clooney, Brad Pitt and others, the book will feature images from these icons’ private lives that prove their timeless appeal.

To celebrate the new book and offer a sneak peek at the Timeless Icons, Tod’s hosted a celebrity-studded cocktail exhibition on 9 November at its headquarters in Tokyo Omotesando, attended by Aaron Kwok and Zhang Ziyi, both of whom are also featured in the forthcoming book. Other notables in the glamorous crowd included Korean pop singer Krystal Jung, Japanese actor Hiroyuki Hirayama & Japanese celebrity Ko Shibasaki, amongst others.
