London Men's Fashion Week: Tom Ford
In perhaps a reflection of a more casual approach for his label, Mr Ford brought a decidedly American spirit to his luxe Spring/Summer 15 collection yesterday, however highlighting sporty looks and jeans rather than the suiting we are so familiar with. “A lot of it is inspired by the side of my life most of you would never see,” said Ford, a Texas native with his own ranch, before a short showroom presentation. “I always wear jeans, but that’s in New Mexico. There’s definitely a bit of Western feel to this because it’s what I wear.”
There was the introduction of new washes, fits, and fabrics for denim while models walked in fringed leather jackets in typical Western shades. Checked shirts alos made an appearance, as did cowboy boots. Evening jackets weren't ignored completely however, thanks to a couple in moiré silk or with a marbled jacquard pattern.
