RUNWAY: Tom Ford SS15As Tom Ford slowly relaxes the reins at his eponymous label by not only putting on a womens runway show but now the American-born, London-based designer has released images of his latest men's collection mere days after the private appointments during LCM; previously the press had to wait months. The big story here is denim. Social media was abuzz with news that Tom Ford, he who makes James Bond look so effortless chic in beautifully cut suits, will be selling jeans!
Since the birth of his son, Tom Ford's collections have been more and more casual, from last season's luxe take on sneakers to this season's denim offerings. Why not? Ford admits that his suiting business is what he's known for so he conceivably does not need to show 20 looks every season with all the various kinds of suits he makes. Instead his focus now lands on sportswear and it's smart since that's the part of the Tom Ford world not many men know about. The result this season a Western-tinged collection of well cut, straight leg denim, great outerwear and enough sex appeal to make it clearly known that this is Tom Ford. There are, of course, a handful of patterned jackets and suits so not to throw the entire men's fashion world upside down.
