A/W 18/19 Influencer Show: Tom Ford

Tom Ford was back with a bang on the opening day of New York Fashion Week, kicking off the official start of the womenswear show calendar with a no-holds-barred procession of glitzy glamour.

This powerful rendering of slick professionalism might not have been to everyone’s taste, but it certainly packed a punch with a palette of eye-searing brights and clashing pattern play.

The 80s were alive and well in the bold, brash silhouettes, manifested in reed-thin leggings topped off with the slouchy volume of an exaggerated fur jacket or glittering sequined sweat top.

And Ford wasn’t shy when it came to his print mash-ups. Colourful big-cat and python-skin prints were combined with bold black and white optical mixes for everything from sharp boardroom power suits to second-skin leggings and fluttery frilled babydoll dresses.

Colour was equally bold with a palette of hot red, lilac, bubblegum, acid yellow and neon lime interspersed with the glitter of colourful sequins, diamante and shimmery metallics in a nod to 80s-inspired excess.

The mega-watt looks dimmed a notch with a procession of sleek black tuxedos and thigh-high micro LBDs teamed with spray-on silver leggings, all accessorised with blinding rhinestone chandelier earrings.

This 80s goodtime girl look went from top to toe – from the wide leather headbands to the vampy va-va-vroom shoes and glittering must-have PussyPower purse bags.
