This is soooooo ugly . I get that he's trying to cater to the same market that he once had in 2004, but haven't most women moved on from this type of look? He needs to learn what the new definition of sexy is. It sure isn't gold lame skirts & snakeskin pants anymore.

Thanks Flashbang for the video!

Jeez... such an incredibly annoying way of presenting the collection. Completely detest the quck-editing, the overexposure, the B&W, the drums, the (inappropriate) art direction... I guess all the flashiness is there to disguise a rather lackluster collection with only a few strong pieces. The coral leather jacket and a poof-caped dress looks beyond stellar, as are the stunning bondage boots-- wished I could actually see them instead of being forced to only glimpse at it with the horrendous presentation. Those transparent hoodies with the metallic skirts with the slits and slashes are as outdated and amateur as perceived in the preview shots. If these designs were from anyone but Ford, forget it. But then again, the presentation doesn't show much. BUT then again, maybe there aren't much to show...

This presentation looks like something from '92, made by first year student.

This is so up my alley. To me this collection is a breath of fresh air in a season filled with boxy, over complicated monstrosities. To me his fashion doesn't need to be forward because thats not who he is. He, imo, is about a certain type of vintage glamour that transcends the tasteless smocks be forced on women nowadays. Fashion absolutely needs a voice like Toms and I couldn't be happier with the clothes and those saucy shoes!

This look is absolutely KILLER!

IN MY OPINION, I don't want two specific members bothering me about this:

Watching the full collection is exactly what I expected, the dress on Andrea Diaconu is really interesting, as well as the shoes, I think they are great, and very modern, but the rest, very questionable taste and execution, just looks cheap. Like jeanclaude said, this looks like it was made for H&M. Can't believe this is actually Tom Ford.

I must need to pop into H&M because if this is along they lines of what they're doing they've clearly stepped up their game.

I'm very glad to see him continuing what he did for fall and moving towards true ready to wear and away from extremely grand evening clothes. While there are a few too many of those bike shorts and no enough in the way of pants, there are some really great separates. Even the evening pieces though have an ease to them, which is unusual for him. That black dress with the cutout sleeves is very simple, but so striking. Same goes for the blue pouf-backed piece. They're very dramatic without being all that "worked".

I really like the idea of a giant crocodile grocery bag, if only for how twisted it is, but those seem like the most impossible handbags to carry day to day.

I am fine with the collection, there are some amazing pieces especially the accessories. The collection speaks very Tom Ford to me which yeah some like and some hate.

He needs to find someone who can produce and edit a better video...

I also find the model's poses really cheesy, the whole presentation itself is distracting...it's not doing the clothes justice...
