Tom Ford: Spring/Summer 2020 Collection
Designer Tom Ford recently added another feather to his glorious career as he becomes the newly appointed director of CFDA. One could see him making changes as he shortened the New York Fashion Week this season and shifted his Spring/Summer 2020 show from the glamorous Upper East Side to a disused platform of a subway platform – the Bowery stop on the J/Z line. He made sure the platform was dressed up in a complete Tom Ford Style. Similarly, his pre-show cocktails were moved from Park Avenue Armory to Nom Wah Dim Sum house. He is helming the change he wants to bring.
“I think that it’s a time for ease and in that way a return to the kind of luxurious sportswear that America has become known for, all over the world.”
The designer took reference referenced from the 1965 famous photo of Andy Warhol and Edie Sedgwick emerging from a manhole in New York City for his collection. Defining his collection as easy in his press notes, Tom Ford opened his collection with a black jersey scoop-neck tee paired with a white duchess satin skirt. There were sportier versions of draped gowns, a jumpsuit cut to show a strappy bikini, and we absolutely in love with the leather jackets.
The highlight of the collection though was the satin blazers with nylon basketball shorts.“These torture me. I’m always fascinated by things that ‘torture me,’” the designer added. Though he did make sure the colors and prints of electric-hued satin, pink cheetah and tiger Jacquard for the blazers gave them a wild look. Ford also paid tribute to Yves Saint Laurent and Issey Miyake with his molded plastic tops in electric colors.
There was a casual athletic feel to the whole collection. Ford knows that Gucci’s old sports styles are back in fashion. As a designer who has a stake in those styles, Tom Ford has very smartly incorporated those designs in a modern way in his Spring/Summer 2020 Collection.
