I really don't get why is he always keeping his collections as a secret like they are something special while they are not I am sure that this collection will sell good cause it's Tom Ford, but I am also sure that I, personally wouldn't buy it. Collection is fine and pretty, but boring and nothing special really.
The only good thing IMO is the looks with the ostrich feathers...the rest looks like power suits and dresses trying to hard to be "sexy" and demand "power"...it really looks like something that Samantha Jones from SATC would wear....feels very dated.
And again I totally forgot there was any Tom Ford collection this season.
Most of these look so overdone and dated, it's like he still was in his 2000's reign. I'm liking four or five black pieces in post #4, but that would be all, really.
Completely agree with this. Which makes this whole secret presentation thing even more pointless because he's really not setting any trends with his recent collections and I doubt Zara and H&M would feel the need to rip off any of those designs. Tom Ford has got to be one of the most overrated designers out there. I liked what he did for Gucci but I can't help but feel that he probably had a really good team working with him there because his efforts for his eponymous label have been awfully underwhelming.
Nice yet sexy but so forgettable. I see it's the super glamorous Tom Ford style but his aesthetic is replacable as it has been done by so many other designers over the past decades, somehow. Versace, Blumarine, Ferretti, Gucci and so on... the "spoiled-daughter-of-an-Italian-millionaire" type of aesthetic....
Another thing that is so funny is the anti-mass-media thing... I don't think his strategies are anti-mass-media, at all. Tom confuses "anti-mass-media" with "elitism", and he is purely obsessed with elitism.... Thomas Maier from BV and Rei from CDG represent something that goes beyond hype and mass media, but Tom Ford? I don't think so. Each and every gossip rag reports on his collections. What a shame, he must be so sad about the publicity coming from mass media.
It's not as disastrous as I expected actually, better than last season. Young, sophisticated and relaxed, but... Tom's recent collections still lack that sparkle, It feels very underwhelming, something that we would easily see in Milan. I also think that he's collections desperately needs to be presented in a propper runaway show, lookbooks are not doing any justice. It makes the collection even more boring and dull.
