Tom Ford 2017 Winter Collection

Tom Ford !!   What a talented man!!  First, he completely put Gucci back on the map. Then opens his own “Super Luxury” bespoke mens wear label, which was closely followed by his ladies wear collection.

Out of nowhere, for his second film he was awarded the Silver Lion Grand Jury Prize for Nocturnal Animals, La Biennale di Venezia’s 73rd Venice Film Festival .

Doesn’t he look marvelous in his own suit 🙂

Along with all this happening, he is still young and gorgeous.

 

Of coarse I’m mainly interested in his new collection, so, we will head back to the Milan Boutique which is showing us the runway “looks”,  not even 24 hours after the catwalk intro in New York.   image

This year there seems to be a whirlwind of themes in most designers’ collections.  Tom Ford is not to be excluded,  one aspect of FW2017 is full of sequence and elegance which dominates his red carpet (or traditionally known as “Black Tie” (ironic term for ladies wear)) collection.

Very inventive and creative use of fur: mink, beaver, fox etc. in various colors alone or mixed.

The 70’s my friends, yes the 70’s.  See the quilt-like patchwork leather jacket just behind me? Yes the 70’s, but with the addition of the pink fur collar to make it 2017.

The collection is also full of his tailored suits and sexy backless dresses. Tight skirts in heavy wool with leather bondage type fasteners. Elegant and cool ……New and retro.
