back in september, tom ford showed his first womenswear collection under his namesake in a very small, private setting, only allowing his own photographers and limiting the audience to a group of 100. naturally, this created mass hysteria amongst the fashion obsessed. tom ford, womenswear, and exclusivity? three (or four) words have never whetted the appetite of fashionistas all over the world. and now, we are finally getting our first look at his collection (along with a glimpse of Ford himself..who is looking better than ever)!
his first womenswear collection since leaving gucci and ysl is the ultimate in tom ford. it's sophisticated, chic, grown up, glamorous, and sexy as hell. but let's be honest here...no one is surprised by this. tom ford only does chic and sexy. i think what i love the most about his collection and presentation is that he's not dressing gawky 16 year old models. he's dressing women, celebrating the female body, celebrating sophistication, and celebrating glamour. dressing women who get dressed. i love it. every piece is flawless. i particularly love the long column dress with the sheer deep-v top, and love it even more with the boxy, fish-scale sequin jacket. it's beyond chic.
and p.s. how delicious does tom himself look?
