It's okay, I think it would look good a decent model.

Echoing most of the sentiments here so far - pretty decent looking collection that's bogged down by poor model, hair/make-up, accessory (jewelry is good, though) and styling choices. In fact, I think all of those choices turn what could be a pretty fresh and attractive looking collection into something that looks a bit dated.

Some of the pieces look very gorgeous (that black/white graphic print is really good) and it's a shame they weren't presented in a more elevated way. Tom obviously knows his customer and what she likes and knows the life she lives...and it's totally fine that he's catering more directly for her - but from a fashion/editorial perspective, he could have pushed it a bit further and into a more modern territory.

Lida Fox and 'awful model' do not belong together. As for the rest…

I don't know why he keeps thinking that awkward cutouts and asymmetries add anything to his aesthetic. If he's so focused on selling, he should just deliver what his customer really wants: super sexy, well fitting with a contemporary twist.

I think he knows his customers but i don't think he knows the life they lives.
Judging by this collection only and maybe his previous collection, the Tom Ford woman seems to be very detached from reality compared to the Tom Ford man. The Tom Ford man is this affluent, independent and strong individual who wants to stand-out but it's hard to see this woman as an active woman.
I love and i wear Tom Ford but i don't recognize myself here and the styling is not relevant enough for an "active" lifestyle.

This for me looks like a younger version of Ralph Rucci and the Ralph Rucci woman for me is not working. She is a philanthropist, a socialite, she goes to diner and everything...She is maybe the wife of the business but she is not the business.

There are some very covetable and ambitious pieces here like the complex zipped top, the blouson in the 4th look but the overall result is sad and lacks energy.
FW12 and SS15 are still my 2 favorite collections from him because it was full Tom Ford. He didn't hold back or tried to be relevant. It was fun, sexy, slightly vulgar but at the same time very approachable.

I really don't think that working with Carine works for Tom anymore. Good clothes last forever and i know that if i buy the pants from this collection, i'll wear them forever but for me, it's impossible for him to get back this energy with Carine.

Carine is at a point of her career where she has to capture the energy of the youth in order to be relevant in a way. I don't think she has to do it but for some reason, she is doing it. Tom needs a fresher eye...Not necessarly someone younger but someone who can give another energy to his clothes.

I would love for him to work with maybe MAS, Benjamin Bruno even Geraldine Saglio or Olivier Rizzo.

I still believe that his voice is necessary in the fashion conversation as no one can do sexy like him...No one really.

I think this is absolutely true. I feel as though them working together has passed the expiration date - in the sense that they don't seem to challenge each other in a positive way anymore. And maybe that's not what either is looking for - which if that's the case, then that's too bad.

But, a fresh eye is indeed needed and I think could be wildly successful to give Tom's ultimately attractive, flattering and extremely well made clothing the boost it needs in terms of packing a more creative punch.

The styling here is far too Madame. I certainly don't want to see Tom pandering to the KIDZ (as Phuel so lovingly refers to them ), but it would be rather intriguing to see someone come in and strip back a bit of the lacquered and shellacked feeling we've been getting from Tom for too long now at his own line. I would like to see his woman de-accessorized, with her hair a bit more of a bed head feeling, and seriously no more tricky shoes!! They suffocate each and every one of the looks!

It's like - in "Nocturnal Animals," I was so bowled over by Amy Adam's surprisingly pure and radiant natural beauty that Tom so ingeniously captured in the flashbacks scenes of her character's younger self...her hair undone, no makeup, a simple black turtleneck...it was fabulous! Would love to see a bit more of that attitude in the presentation of his collections.

There's something in the stark daywear looks in black & white that are giving me a distinct whiff of his iconic Fall 1996 collection, only without the structure and slickness. Sort of a Donna Karan-ified take on that Gucci look. It's as if that young woman grew up, left the VIP booths and got in touch with the earth just a bit. Whether or not that's a good thing is open for debate, but in some looks -- like the long cream duster coat, crew neck and fluid trousers with the big brass-detailed belt -- it has a definite allure to it.

It's missing the humor though, the sense of "I know this is wrong but it feels so right" that has, until as recently as Fall 2015, defined his work. It's not bad, it's just not as good as it could be.

Didn't Monse do that split side sequinned tee-shirt-dress thing last season. The Monse version is much nicer too. The model is awful!
