Hail King Tom
What an incredible few days it has been as a spectator of NYFW 2019. Whilst I have so many designers and pieces to review, I just wanted to get everyone to Hail the King, Tom Ford.
Vogue suggested “Tom Ford has gone tame.” Postshow, he called it a “search for security” and said it was a response to the culture of negativity in the world around us, especially in the United States. “I’ve never really been a designer who’s talked about a moment in time, how that’s influenced what I design, but you can’t escape the news,” Ford said. “I feel frustrated and agitated and exhausted. And I don’t want to wear anything particularly challenging or anything particularly aggressive.”
Well I don’t blame you Tom, with everything going on in the world who doesn’t feel exhausted! I still have to say his version of “tame” still absolutely slays and I will certainly be rocking some tailored velvets in stunning mauves, burgundy and of course black all inspired by you.
Peace, Love n Rock n Roll BB
