Lace, leather, silk satin and a noticeable interwar feeling are some of the key elements of Tom Ford’s Spring 2019 Ready-To-Wear Collection. The visionary designer draws inspiration from the Weimar era, evoking a dark and mysterious but elegantly sexy style, juxtaposed to almost all modern norms. After all, it is his firm belief that “fashion has somehow lost its way a bit, and it is easy for all of us to be swept up in trends”, so it is only natural that he reestablishes coolness by turning his back on what is popularly perceived as relevant.
His lean silhouettes, structured jackets, sensual skirts -asymmetrical or with slits- and, of course, his somewhat subdued color palette lead to a certain conclusion: With this collection, Tom Ford intends to bring fashion back to a place where it makes men and women feel more beautiful and confident, which happens to be the actual cause of his decision to become a designer in the first place.
A wide spectrum of celebrities and fashion aficionados, from Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson to Cardi B and Henry Golding, attended the show which channeled Tom Ford’s late-era Gucci along with a seductive promise for the future.
