No to gowns and tuxedos, but a resounding yes to sparkle, the more the better! His latest collection revived the sequins and gold lamé of the Studio 54 disco scene in the ’70s and neon hues from ’80s Americana with low-rise pants and proportion-playing silhouettes of the ’90s.
The core of the collection: sequins, sequins, sequins. The palette of the collection and the shiny fabrics recalled the ‘80s, a time when an outfit could just be baggy silhouettes in saturated tones of cyan and fuchsia, lime green and tangerine.
He also reclaimed the iconic red velvet suit he designed 25 years ago at Gucci. Ford altered it with a different cut and shorts, giving it a sexy new currency. As for the chunky gold chains on early hip-hop stars and ’90s fashion runways, Ford brought those back, too and used them as embellishment on status denim jackets embroidered all over with tiny gold chains.
Fun and sexy, these two words instantly came to summarize the Tom Ford collection.
