[NEW YORK, NY.] It’s a bit painful knowing that my first time attending TOM FORD was his least glamorous showcase. Don’t get me wrong, it was extremely star-studded with luxury dripping from every angle! This time around, Ford wanted to lessen the discomfort of negativity that’s constantly found pouring out of media. Instead, he focused more on solid colours that can be found in anyone’s wine cabinet. There was an assortment of purple hues, like pale, medium or even deep purple brought a sense of quality aged wine.
For most wines, it’s best to consumer five years post-production, which makes all the sense as to why Ford repurposed his 1990’s velvet suits to be more playful, yet, it gave contrast to the velvet and satin combination. In person, what stood out to me on the runway were the platform velvet heels that grazed the velour floors. As the models walked effortlessly down the runway, the clothes just flowed so nicely, it just naturally demanded attention to every detail. Starting with hats the models wore on their head or the fact that there were no accessories worn at all – with the exception to the men that wore timepieces, but that was it. The women had cuffed satin pants that were slightly oversized and added to the glamour of gone with the wind, fabulous.
The show did end with a few gowns that were embellished a little with gold chains. The final look, however, was an exquisite ‘cliff-hanger’ message to the world that despite Ford’s subdued approach this season there’s much more glamour to expect in his next design project.
Inherit Love, I AM,
Ps: I’ll have to add that I’m extremely impressed with myself because I matched the same colours shown on the runway tonight. I’m on that same creative wavelength as TOM FORD. Xxoo.
