“Reinventing the 80’s” An Editor Review Of Tom Ford AW18 NYFW

Date: 08 February 2018

Vibe: Party ready glamour reinventing the ‘80s.

We Loved: The clashing colors, fabrics and prints.

Favourite Model: It was great to see Kaia Gerber back on the fashion show circuit amongst a stellar line-up of big-name girls.

Color Palette: A kaleidoscope of hues including flaming reds, vidid corals, acid greens, burnt browns and basic blacks.

Print or Plain: The charismatic designer fully embraced the former, sending out every reinvention of the animal print imaginable; from cheetah spots to zebra stripes and – of course – the good old faithful leopard.

The Silhouette: A juxtaposition of super-oversized or seamlessly tailored.

Accessorised: Huge diamond hoop or chandelier earrings; fishnets worn under leggings and pants; mid-heel heavily-embellished court shoes clashed with equally bedazzled handbags; and hair was swept back with black perspex or glistening spandex headbands.

Styling: The layering of contrasting fabrications such as sequins, fur, horse hide, quilting, perspex and lurex brought a refreshingly futuristic ascetic.

Front Row: All wearing Tom Ford (naturally) were Julianne Moore, Elizabeth Banks, Karen Elson, Hailey Baldwin, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Dutch model Doutzen Kroes.

Overheard: “Who’d have thought canary yellow would complement brown so well?”

Fun Fact: Anwar Hadid (brother of Gigi and Bella) arrived hand-in-hand with actress Nicola Peltz.

Another Fun Fact: On closer inspection it was revealed the sequinned writing on the shoes and bags spelt out “Pussy Power”.

Don’t Cha Know: The smoky eyes were created using Tom Ford Extrême eye shadow palettes.

Instagrammed: “I guess Tom Ford isn’t a vegan.”

International Acquisition Executive/Fashion, Beauty and Food enthusiast! I spend most of my time browsing online shopping websites or over-indulging in high-calorie foods (and guilty of instagramming pics of them afterwards). I also have a serious obsession with searching for the dreamy holiday destinations (Manchester really isn’t that sunny) and I aspire to go travelling.
