Fall for Tom is simplistic and he appears to have pulled back to his basic favs in terms of prints, cuts and shapes. His girl this time around is much more demure (I never thought id use that description in relation to Tom Ford) opting for above the knee length skirts and boxy ‘sensible covered winter jackets. Her feisty Ford side isn’t completely in hiding though, with her penchant for fishnet tights, animal print and shiny sexy leathers still coming out for a whirl. I love Tom Ford and he’s easily in my top 5 fav designers list, and given his usual colour print texture frenzy, it’s easy to feel underwhelmed by this collection as a whole, but upon a second and third look, you’ll find his genius is actually in the styling and individual pieces, making me think a focus on marketability was possibly on the cards this time around.
Ford has also taken on a collaboration with French brand Black Boy Place utilising their Tom Ford jersey designs (as seen on Jay Z) but transforming the popular tees into long sleeved fully sequinned dresses which also happen to have the word
Molly printed under the 61 numbers. No big deal there with a Miley Cyrus reference, no big deal.
