Tom Ford likes his fashion, slow.
In the fast fashion lane, that’s like seeing Grace Kelly’s vintage vanilla-ice-cream-coloured Aston Martin with a tortoiseshell steering wheel next to a sputtering, loud motorcycle. Sometimes things make noise and we look at them, but they are gone so fast we can hardly remember them – only the residual noise and smoke remain.
Given that we are already seeing collections far into 2012 (which will seem outdated to us by the time the relevant season arrives), here’s a sneak peek at Mr. Ford’s Fall/Winter 2011 collection look book – but only because he wants you to see it now.
Tom Ford wants you to think all summer about how gorgeous you will look, come September.
What’s that old saying? Slow and steady wins the race…
