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.

As we get closer to The World Cup ’18 the brand in their own words wanted to use this special occasion comfortably as it coincides with the inauguration of the sport. Using this as inspiration for this S/S19 collection What We Wear chose to pay close attention to the 70’s-90’s era and revisited the ideology of uniform from football jersey tops and matching shorts and trousers to tracksuits and trench coats this seasons choices were amazing. Using primary colours such as red, blue and yellow as their main inspiration from references to country flags.
This season the brand teamed up with Amsterdam based brands Daily Paper and Filling Pieces using uniquely- designed customised Filling Pieces footwear and What We Wear x Daily Paper accessories to add that bit extra to the outfits as a visual rendition of the triple brands fused for a friendly- match. What We Wear pulled off an unmissable show and yet again has everyone excited for next season.
Ben Sherman welcomes the summer season with an old school vibe inspired by young rock and roll icons of the 60s, all in collaboration with House of Holland. The SS/19 collection was unveiled with different hues of salmon pink and wine red. The pieces included burgundy candy stripes, soft mint green, and pastel pink, combined with giant tropical florals and bright gingham.
The music set a tone for an incredible show to start and down came some oversized printed shirts, paired with flamboyant fitted shorts and edgy slides for footwear to complete the look. The coolest black and pink varsity jackets mixed in with preppy polo shirts giving us a mod aesthetic. Denim was presented alongside hoodies that were printed with Ben Sherman calligraphy to highlight the designers’ initials and name, which left an impression of a very modern Ivy League style collection, representing nothing less than a novelty.
The pair blended together to create a British attitude that didn’t go unnoticed in the models and definitely created an atmosphere that ensured the audience knew just how distinct they were in appearance as well as character. The exciting mixture of colour and prints demonstrated that Ben Sherman has and always will continue to prove to be the epitome of modern British style and the essence of individuality.
