it's funny that the review says

Quote:
From the first model on the runway, we are struck by what resembles an out-of-style Gucci collection from ten years ago.
Cause that's exactly what his other 2 collections looked to me aswell. i wonder how i'm gonna react to this one

I didn't mean it in that way. I just hope that kind of problem won't happen again. I feel like his ego is too big for him to accept to move forward and stop repeating those dated looks he has produced so far. Therefore, I'm hoping he stops before getting bashed after each season for showing dated stuff and having ego issues (those are fine when you design great stuff, not when your collections aren't so good).

^I honestly can't see the logic behind that. His previous two collections got good reviews and a lot of attention so I don't see how a bad review would necessarily mean more attention. For me it's more like critics have finally stopped kissing his *ss and being more honest about his dated aesthetic.

I love Tom Ford, but I can't judge his latest show, why? Because there was the "no photo" policy. Again. So I assume it'll be two-three months before he puts the pictures that Terry Richardson took on his site. I looked up the reviews on yelp of his store in NYC a few months ago, and apparently he keeps the clothes behind glass! GLASS! It seems like he's saying "Only the rich and classiest of people can see, touch,smell,lick,and revel in the amazingness of my clothes." I would appreciate him so much more if he would let the public see the clothes. But from what I hear, the collection is a bust anyway.

Actually the store isn't like that anymore, it hasn't been since it first opened when the different racks were build like glass closets. Everything's out in the open now (except for some built in visual displays that are behind glass).

C'mon, the only reason why Tom Ford doesn't show his collections it's because he wants exclusivity, his clients don't want to wear dresses in the summer 2012 that f*cking celebrities wore in the fall 2011, it's simple.

Part of me likes that and it annoys part of me. If you really want exclusivity just control when the actual pieces are released, the images are irrelevant. Yeah there will be copies but I'm sure he's not creating something new and innovative, specially being the commercial whore he is. (I say that with the utter most respect, heck for him it's a compliment)

Wouldn't he be the one who has the power as to when the actual dresses and pieces are released? That's all he really has to change, not when the IMAGES are out. If the pieces are not released until the date that they go on sale then they would get exclusivity.

It's like Givenchy having a presentation for it's Haute Couture, and people saying it's for exclusivity yet we see Beyonce, Courtney Love, Naomi Campbell and who knows who else wore those gowns. He's just using his RTW the same way that other designers use their haute couture, to be a driving force for his make up line and perfumes.

Is it a repost? An interview from The Talks (the date is July 20, 2011)

Tom Ford at Vuitton’s?

It’s only rumors, like the ones started in February – when John Galliano was fired from Dior- so far, and they are probably not meant to stop, as no one has replaced the British designer leading the French brand yet, but in the fashion world they are incessant.

Just a week ago Marc Jacobs was supposed to be one of the candidates for Christian Dior’s creative direction: rumors were almost confident, but there was no official announcement. But today we have an interesting II act of what we could call LVMH strategy: after the possible Jacobs arrival at Dior’s, Louis Vuitton creative direction is supposed to see a great protagonist of the fashion world back.

We’re talking about Tom Ford who, after leaving Gucci and after the experience behind the camera with "A single man", launched his womenswear collection. Well: Tom Ford’s retrée, who relaunched the Gucci brand in the ‘90s, would be a proper twist.

Oddly enough, out of all the LVMH rumors that have gone on since Galliano got the axe, this is the first one that makes almost complete sense to me.
