TOD'S Destiny

When Tod's, an Italian luxury shoes and leather goods brand, acquired a new retail space at Destiny USA in Syracuse, New York, the mall’s design management team tapped architecture firm Colkitt&Co to carry out Tod’s design concept and vision for the premium outlet location. Despite a short timeline of just three months, the team delivered a refined renovation with careful attention to craftsmanship and compliance to LEED certification guidelines.
Colkitt&Co’s knowledge of retail environments and extensive experience with local building codes, including the completion of the LEED Platinum certified PUMA store located within the same mall, made it possible to optimize every element of the 3,000-square-foot space. Upon entering the store through glass doors, located on the first level across from Armani and Ferragamo, shoppers are immersed in a balance of modernity and tradition. With Tod’s high-end profile, and desire to have an outlet store that operates more like a full-price location, the team elevated the interiors with crisp white walls, Italian-imported leather panels in the brand’s signature caramel color, a strong emphasis on the merchandise, and modern seating.
