So, two months after fashion week, Tom Ford has debuted his spring summer 2012 collection on Vogue.com. In the best possible way, it’s exactly what we expected, which makes all the cloak and dagger business a bit pointless. We’ve got ultra-lux form-fitting dressed with clinched waists, bondage-esque corsets, satin suits in his trademark purple, which frankly we’re surprised Cadburys hasn’t tried to trademark.
Talking about the collection, Ford said:
“I want to do classic clothes. I don’t want to do trendy collections that swing around from season to season. I want to do things that will stay in a woman’s wardrobe a long time—quite ‘forever’ pieces. So I’m looking for consistency.”
Quite. We think Ford is at his best when he’s putting Nicholas Hoult in an angora sweater for A Single Man. Let’s hope there’s some truth in the rumour that he could be doing an H&M collaboration then.
