TOM FORD Takes On NYFW

Tom Ford’s highly-anticipated runway event illuminated the designer’s ability to defy trends in favour of his singular vision. The eponymous brand ushered in New York Fashion Week with an unprecedented see-now, shop-now strategy. (While most of Mr. Ford’s peers will preview spring/summer collections, he diverted from this “antiquated schedule” to immediately offer his clothing to couth customers.)
The TOM FORD dinner-turned-fashion-show took place in Manhattan’s legendary Four Seasons Restaurant, while simultaneously live-streamed to viewers around the world. Alicia Keys, Julianne Moore, Tom Hanks, Uma Thurman and Zayn Malik were among the mega-watt stars in attendance. And what a spectacle to behold. The standout presentation celebrated a full-on 1970s revival while staying true to Tom Ford’s love of luxury tailoring. Shaggy-haired models sauntered in a sophisticated selection of voluminous topcoats, leather jackets, turtlenecks and oversized sunglasses.
