Tom Ford displayed his latest looks for Spring Summer 19 at New York Fashion Week. Known for his sexy style and his contribution at Gucci (where he became the creative director in 1994) Tom launched his own label in 2006 but this season the American designer brought us a mixture of crocodile textures, leopard print and lace detailing. The collection showcased a number of silhouettes, mostly romantic and complimentary to women’s curves with sharply tailored looks. A sophisticated and corporate look was also displayed throughout, with tailored blazers that included a crocodile textured blazer which opened the show.
The SS19 colour pallet had a nostalgic vibe with champagne, silvery lilac, mauve, optic white and darker tones. He also included khaki green and black biker jackets. Recognised for his sexy minimalistic style, Ford plays with ruching and plunge necklines whilst displaying classy and slinky looks. Key trends that were spotted in the collection were the cowl neckline, full and midi length dresses layered with translucent fabrics along with velvet and satin created fitted silhouettes. A strong use of lace and crocodile accessories flowed through the collection, styled unusually with head scarfs and strapped court styled pointed heels.
Overall Tom Ford continues to display his iconic style, shaped from years in the fashion industry at Yves Saint Laurent, Gucci, and his own brand. A sleek and chic range of Spring Summer looks perfect for the confident career-minded woman of today. Share your thoughts on the latest looks by Tom Ford below.
In June 2018, Oliver Spencer showcased another spectacular collection during London Fashion Week Men’s, at British Fashion Council’s Show Space at The Store Studios. This “Spring Summer 2019” collection named “Wildflower”, had a naturalistic vibe with earthy tones, worn with daisy-chain flower necklaces. Artist, Wolfgang Buttress, collaborated to transport the audience (press and buyers) through multi-sensory sound and projection, to a wildflower meadow.
The latest looks had unique relaxed twists, and reflected society’s increasing environmentally-conscious attitudes. Garments made out of sustainable fabrics, such as organic cotton used new fabrication methods, with a healthier effect on the environment. A more naturalistic attitude was also reflected through the nature-inspired colour palettes of olive green, navy, mocha, and stone greys, and utilitarian styles. Slight feminine touches were seen throughout the collection with soft-pink going hand-in-hand with a floral focus for the season’s spring looks. Graphic T’s were merged with timeless traditional silhouettes, reinforcing Spencer’s sophisticated but relaxed tailored style.
Mr Spencer never fails to showcase his looks on a diverse cast of models, with both age and ethnicity fairly represented, and his brand proposed a new relaxed version for today’s modern man. He will be donating proceeds from the sale of Wildflower Ts to Shine Cancer Support.
It was a great turnout for the iconic menswear designer, with many celebrity-attendees, including Alesha Dixon supporting her model boyfriend Azuka Ononye on the runway, Hu Bing, and Dougie Poynter.
Overall his SS19 collection was refreshing, socially-responsive and leaves us with great anticipation for the next set of trends from Spencer, in January 2019.
