Oh NYFW, How I Have Missed You...A Close Look At Tom Ford Spring/Summer 2019
TGIS! (Thank God It’s September). The dramatically hot temperatures are getting old, and it will be nice to be reacquainted very soon with our old friend, 80-degree days.
With that being said, the beginning of September means it’s New York Fashion Week! With so much going on, it’s hard to know where to get started to stay updated on all of the news. Luckily, I will be your guide on all things NYFW, so you can follow along right here daily as I post wrap-ups of my favorite shows each day.
DAY 1 (September 6th):
First show of the week, yesterday the Tom Ford Spring 2019 show started with a bang at the Park Avenue Armory. The new season brought a lot of change for the brand, but the extravagant list of celebrity guests was nothing new. Names such as Suki Waterhouse, Eva Chen, Derek Blasburg, and Cardi B, and of course Anna Wintour cape out to see the show.
As for the change of the brand I mentioned? Ford made it clear that there was a lot to switch up this season. Specifically, he said that he feels “fashion has somehow lost its way a bit and it is easy for all of us to be swept up in trends that have lost touch with what women and men want to actually wear”.
This spring, you’ll be seeing a lot less athleisure and Logo-mania that you may have become accustomed to in the last collections. Yesterday Ford went back to his roots, to the glamorous pieces that made him stand out in his tenure at Yves Saint Laurent, Gucci, and his current name-sake brand.
The most memorable looks of the show? Crocodile jackets, delicate lace, satin pointed shoes, pencil skirts, asymmetrical hemlines, feather details and pastel shades were all present, making a strong case for femininity.
Looking forward to seeing these key looks from the show in real life, this upcoming season.
This collection had a plethora of soft pastels like lavenders and beige-y neutrals, but each outfit was evened out with something more fierce and structured, like this black faux-crocodile jacket.
Why did Ford go with such light, soothing colors this spring? When asked, he stated “given the harshness of the world, a softer color palette seemed right to me this season”.
Very pleased with the way satin was incorporated into each outfit, giving each edgy look a feminine twist.
Pencil-framed skirts were taken in a sexy direction this time around, looking glamorous with lace corsets and cool-girl black sunglasses.
If you thought that feather details were cool in the fall, Tom Ford says that you can make your way into the spring in the same way. Out of all of the pieces, this coat stole the show. When you’re walking downtown in this coat, everyone is going to think that you’re walking in slow motion when the gorgeous feathers catch their eye.
