Did H&M, Zara or another clothing company of that ilk knock off the last collection?

I LOVE that the new store is right across from Gucci.

Seems quite fitting actually given the moves that Gucci has been making. I mean it does seem like they're trying to compete with Ford what with the upcoming makeup line, the Premiere collection, the ultra-expensive runway pieces...

i just love that tom ford has stuck to his principles on this one. i suspect that some other designers may follow suit in the upcoming seasons. as much as i personally love having access to all of these shows upfront, this type of immediate gratification only benefits the house if they have something to offer customers today. for the big houses, the average customer does have ways to participate in the designer's vision immediately by running out and purchasing a lipstick, a bag, a pair of jeans, a pair of sunglasses, a fragrance, a pillow, SOMETHING, but one must realize that smaller houses without all of those houses don't necessary benefit from putting their work out there early. a lot of times, it simply loses its freshness even when it's a great idea.

also, despite what many might think, when one enters a high end boutique, part of the fun remains finding items that one hasn't necessarily seen on the runway (and have not tired of)....

^ I don't know if you can assert that Mr. Ford has stuck to his principles since it as only been a few days since the presentation, now when the clock strikes June and we have not seen hide nor hair of the collection then you can say that Mr. Ford is walking his talk.

^but he could have allowed cameras this go round. it's not like he didn't receive pressure after the last time.

But the cameras that are banned are outside parties bringing in cameras, that does not mean that the collection was not shot by in-house / contracted photographers. Furthermore, there are other means for the clothes to be made public, after all the target for the "intimate" showing was the press, so all that has to happen is the right editor calling Ford up to request a couple of items for a shoot and voila...

^ It's false indeed, this rumor came after Keira Knightley was featured in editorial for UK Elle March 2011, representing Tom Ford clothes. And she isn't face of Tom Ford.

Carolyn's dress is one of the ugliest I've seen in my whole life. What was he thinking?

^ Really? I dunno. At first it looked a bit awkward, perhaps because of all the little annoying details. But then I found quite sexy.

Meanwhile Joan looks drop dead gorgeous. No other way to say it.
