TOM FORD RETURNS TO WOMENSWEAR
Ever since TOM FORD left the creative helm at GUCCI and YSL, female fans have been waiting with bated breath for his return to womenswear.
In the DECEMBER issue of VOGUE, he offers a first glimpse of his new spring 2011 women’s collection.
“It’s about individuality – real clothes, real women – for a fashionable woman aged 25 to 75,” the designer told the magazine.
“I don’t think fashion has to change every five minutes. I’d like these to be clothes you can wear for a long time – ten, twenty years; pass on to your daughter. Why buy vintage when you can open your own closet?”
Mr. Ford, as he now likes to be called, makes his mark with a luxurious line of 70s inspired designs, including a fringed electric blue dress and sexy pantsuits.
The well edited collection will only be available in his 16 menswear stores until next year.
He revealed specific photos to VOGUE three months after his ultraexclusive presentation during NEW YORK FASHION WEEK in September, managing to maintain a seriously individualistic approach to his comeback.
“I do not understand everyone’s need to see everything on line the day after a show. I don’t think it ultimately serves the customer, which is the whole point of my business – not to serve journalists or the fashion system.”
