If there’s one designer who truly knows glamour, it’s Tom Ford. But for Fall 2019, he’s gone on a softer tone, presenting a collection in New York Fashion Week that was less aggressive and sexualized compared to his recent offerings. He admits that this is because of how he’s been feeling lately with all the social and political issues bombarding the world right now. Overwhelmed by such negativity, he put forth a toned-down take on his classic signatures of eras past. At first glance, one can already see (and even feel) the softness in this line, what with the shimmering satins, fuzzy velvets, and plush wools that he tailored to perfection. And speaking of tailoring, this was the biggest element of the show, from the women’s silky leisure ensembles to the men’s more rigid and somber suits. The electric mix of colors and textiles takes one back to his heyday in the late 80s and 90s. The bold plays on tones of red remind one of Yves Saint Laurent, one of the first major houses he worked for. The clash of matte velvet with the glimmering satins are more akin to his glamorous and career-defining tenure at Gucci, made more relaxed with fuzzy fedoras and cashmere scarves. The parade of slinky evening gowns also highlighted his majestic and iconic array of white evening gowns in the mid-90s. These and more offer a fabulous refuge from today’s seemingly dystopic world and harkens back to a time when thing were fine and fashion was bombastic!
