New York, New York. On February 6th, Tom Ford marked the start of New York Fashion Week. His collection was a series of subdued and understated pieces, which is a stark difference from his typical elaborate creations. Vogue reported that post show Ford stated the collection is a reflection of society’s search for security. He went on to say “I feel frustrated and agitated and exhausted. And I don’t want to wear anything particularly challenging or anything particularly aggressive.”- Vogue.
While it may be more understated and less fussy than Ford’s usual collections, it consists of an array of luxurious fabrics. Satin, leather, fur, and velvet are carried through the entire line. The layering and mixing of textures created captivating looks.
The pieces all fell under dark, moody, and subdued color tones. Black was the main hue, but royal purple, navy blue, earthy browns, were all part of the collection. A pop of color came through with the vibrant reds and hunter greens. The evening wear for women did consists of softer colorways.
There were a number of suits and blazer looks that came down the runway for both men and women. The loose fit, covered up, conservative style elicited an over all masculine vibe.
What do you think of Tom Ford’s interpretation of how society is feeling? Is this collection too far from his usual designs, or do you like the change? Let me know in the comments!
