Tom Ford NYFW SPRING 2020 READY-TO-WEAR

How many times have you heard that the streets of New York are a runway? Well, the same is true of the subway, only maybe more so. There’s glamour and grit down there, same as above ground, but down below there’s a captive audience.

Tom Ford is the new chairman of the CFDA, and after starting in June his first move was to shorten New York Fashion Week. Simultaneous with the consolidation, designers have been producing more experiential events. We’ve seen bands, modern dancers, and a 75-person choir this week, but only Ford arranged for a private viewing of a disused platform of the Bowery stop on the J/Z line lit an electric pink for the occasion. Many of his 180 guests were surely subway first-timers, but the regular commuters got a big kick out of it too.

What is Mr. Slick doing in the subway? Ford’s notes made mention of the famous shot of Andy Warhol and Edie Sedgwick emerging out of a manhole cover. The subway also jibes with his new-since-last-season interest in simplicity. “I think that it’s a time for ease,” he wrote, “and in that way a return to the kind of luxurious sportswear that America has become known for all over the world.”

Enter look one: a jersey scoop-neck tee with the short sleeves rolled up to the shoulders and a duchesse satin skirt so white it was beaming. Not exactly subway-safe, it was low-key fabulous and synthesized the compelling high-low essence of the collection. Or consider another example: satin blazers cut characteristically strong and worn with elastic-waist nylon basketball shorts. “These torture me,” Ford wrote of the shorts, pointing out that he doesn’t let his son Jack wear them, even though his classmates do. “I’m always fascinated by things that ‘torture me.’” Ford didn’t play it completely contrary, though. The molded plastic tops were a luscious homage to Yves Saint Laurent’s Lalanne breastplates via Issey Miyake. And Ford’s tailored men’s jackets were typically loud and louche.

Connecting with one of the key messages of the season so far—let’s call it the nearly naked trend, for now—Ford threw a dress coat over a leather bra, cut a jumpsuit so it fell open to expose a strappy bikini top, and sent out a pair of slinky maillots. Of course, the millennial designers doing the same have probably been studying Ford’s old Gucci shows. That legacy of great American sportswear Ford was talking about? He has a stake in it. What’s new is old, that’s just how fashion works. Credit Ford, he’s expanding his vocabulary.

Tom-Ford-Fall-19

Simon, a global leader in premier shopping, dining, entertainment and mixed-use destinations today announced that iconic luxury brand Tom Ford will open boutiques at two of Simon’s premier properties, The Galleria in Houston and Phipps Plaza in Atlanta. Both boutiques will feature women’s and men’s ready-to-wear fashion and will open by Holiday 2019.

The 4,000 square-foot store in Houston will be located in The Galleria’s luxury wing which includes Chanel, Valentino, Louis Vuitton, and Saint Laurent among others. At 4,500 square feet, the Tom Ford boutique at Phipps Plaza will join the new Valentino boutique, newly-expanded Gucci and Jeffrey stores, and the first-in-market Saint Laurent.

“We’re very pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with Simon through the addition of our two newest stores in Phipps Plaza and The Galleria,” said Tom Ford, the company’s Chief Executive Officer and Creative Director. “Houston and Atlanta continue to be very strong markets for our business, and we look forward to serving our customers in these new stores.”

“Simon and Tom Ford are a perfect fit combining one of fashion’s most prestigious names with two of Simon’s leading properties,” said Velda Turan, Simon’s Senior Vice President of Luxury Leasing.

More than 30 million visitors each year enjoy the uniquely comprehensive experience of The Galleria, one of the nation’s top ten shopping centers and the largest in Texas. Spanning 2.4 million square feet of space, housing 400 stores and restaurants, two high-rise hotels, and three office towers, The Galleria is Houston’s most popular retail and tourist destination, meeting every budget, style and taste. The Houston Galleria is owned by a joint venture between Simon and Institutional Mall Investors.

Located in Atlanta’s prestigious Buckhead district, Simon’s Phipps Plaza is the Southeast’s premier upscale shopping, dining and entertainment destination. Its distinctive mix of contemporary and luxury fashion is home to more than 50 market-exclusive brands. Ground was broken in October 2018 on a transformative mixed-use redevelopment which will include the arrival of Nobu Hotel and Restaurant Atlanta, a 90,000 square-foot Life Time® healthy living and entertainment destination, and One Phipps Plaza, a 13-story, 350,000 square foot Class A office building.

TOM FORD MEN 2015

While I love his perfectly tailored suits, I am obsessing over the more relaxed side of Tom Ford. He gave us a rugged-luxe collection for Spring 2015 and I am telling you, I'd wear every single fucking piece. Denim has never looked better. Ford has paired it with suede outerwear and with evening jackets alike. The fit of the collection is absolutely impeccable, elevating it to a higher standard of casual yet polished comfort. Bad boy meets pretty boy with a dash of Western. Ride 'em cowboy. View Collection:

Tom Ford Men 2014

Tom Ford MEN Spring 2014

It is rare, as in almost never, that I love every piece in a collection. Until now.

Tom Ford Spring '14 served up the most delicious use of color and prints from head to toe. [I'd wear every piece!] Slimcut trousers with oversized cuffs, suede and velvet loafers in sumptuous colors, motorcycle jackets, shorts, chunky knits - all very wearable - all very Tom Ford. My favorite, of course are the blazers. Their cut, tailoring and textile choices are out of this world. AND the to-die-for obsession goes to the floral pants.
