Tom Ford Spring/Summer 2014 Collection
Tom Ford… More than a name, more than a brand, these two words have become synonymous with luxury, finesse and suave. If the mainstream fashion brands make up the highways of the industry, then all roads lead to Tom Ford. After all, if it’s good enough for James Bond, then it’s good enough for the rest of us.
Taking a silver thread through his previous 1950s Hollywood collection, Ford elegantly dovetails the bold statements and essence of the SS13 line into next season’s 1970s-inspired collection.
Whilst the pieces and styles have an international appeal, there is an unmistakable feel of cosmopolitan Europe in this range. Ford captures all the detailed nuances, from the class and sophistication of the London gentleman, to the understated luxury of Monaco, to the pride and flamboyance of the Italian fashion scene.
Energy and Life are two words to describe these pieces. The colours, choice of fabrics and cuts perfectly capture the essence of the spring season and the promise of new things to come. Key themes include mock animal print and embroidered floral designs.
Highlights include the floral print jackets and cropped trousers, along with the vibrant footwear prints. Silk, suede and velvet feature strongly, ensuring a premium feel and ensuring all eyes will be on you come spring/summer.
In summary, the SS14 collection combines a familiar feel with a fresh look, setting the stage for what looks to be a special year to come. In both the 1950s and 1970s, there was a feeling of anticipation – a time when great things happened. Likewise, this collection hints that 2014 promises to be a year to be remembered; one of those iconic times in history; a great time to be alive.
Accessories to complete the look: a Martini, a supermodel girlfriend, an Oscar, or a yacht.
