TOM FORD Spring/Summer 2015

London Fashion Week kicked off last Friday and yesterday-eve Tom Ford presented his Spring/Summer 2015 collection at Lindlay Hall with an amazing scenery (see my Instagram below).

Ford likes kink. He’s into tousle-haired, smoky-eyed rock chicks. The seventies are his stomping ground. The collection Tom Ford showed for spring riffed knowingly on all those points he covered so successfully at GUCCI in the high nineties. Now that young designers who were babies in those years are quoting those times, he’s circled back to reclaim the territory. Mostly in black, with flares and giant seventies glam-rock platform clogs, to boot.

The attenuated, massively tall silhouette of the skinny-hipped pantsuits he showed created a dramatic impression. Slit skirts showed stocking-tops. A mini-caftan plunged open in front. Eroticism and perversity were hinted at with golden minidresses with metal pasties placed over naked breasts and long black evening dresses banded with beaded bondage straps. Trendwise, Ford is on the right page. Throughout the past couple of weeks, there have been several new-generation designers who’ve been showing transparent, breast-revealing looks. Ford, of course, tempers his versions with the experience of a luxury-level designer. On close inspection, his collection also contains plenty of items like super-refined suede jackets trimmed with patent leather, which will call to his existing customers who’ve no interest in going the whole way with the full-on image. Still, at a moment when a tentative reconsideration of body-exhibiting style seems to be rising from the margins, Tom Ford has staked his claim. If there’s anyone who should rightfully lead the charge to bring sexy back, he’s the man.
