(9 Feb 2018) SPARKLES, FAKE FUR, ZAYN AND AN 80S LA VIBE AT TOM FORD
Tom Ford recently moved to the Los Angeles sunshine after a number of years in London, and his runway show at New York Fashoin Week on Thursday (8 FEBRUARY) was a fanciful ode to his current hometown.
One black sequined sweatshirt was even emblazoned “Tom Ford Beverly Hills” — a play on Giorgio Beverly Hills, the famous old luxury boutique on Rodeo Drive.
Pop star Zayn sat in the front row, and the opening soundtrack at the show featured hits from the early ’80s like The Pointer Sisters’ “I’m So Excited” and “Jump (For My Love).”
There were lots of sparkles — either in the shimmering stretchy pants and tights, or in the huge, shiny earrings the models sported. There were roomy coats in fake fur, in colors like red and orange. One black coat was emblazoned with flowers in pink, orange and baby blue.
And there were tights — lots of them — under short dresses or simply under jackets, in solid colors or in animal-type prints in bright green or yellow.
It was Ford’s second runway show in two nights, following his men’s show on Tuesday. Ford’s women’s show always draws a glitzy crowd, and this time actresses Julianne Moore, Elizabeth Banks and Gina Gershon were among the fashion fans on hand.
TV personality La La Anthony said of Ford: “He takes over every time.”
