Julianne Moore, Uma Thurman, Karlie Kloss, Cindy Crawford, Alicia Keys, Zayn Malik and Tom Hanks were just a handful of the top celebrities who were present to witness the show. Julianne Moore wore a long, black ribbed gown to the affair. Karlie Kloss was photographed in a halter, long metallic silver gown paired with ankle strapped sandals. Cindy Crawford wore a white halter gown.
Tom Ford Fall 2016 First Look
The collection radiated the vibe of 70s disco looks: long, butterfly sleeves, flared sleeves, multi-colored metallics, and the piece that tied everything together — the leather in shades of tan and black.
Blouses, A-line, calf-length and pencil skirts, full dresses and overcoat pieces had the luxurious feel of tan leather on. There was a mix of chic, posh and daring throughout the show as models glided on the runways dressed in multi-colored color block metallic skirts, multi-colored fur coats smartly lined with leather, red metallic dresses and animal prints mixed and matched with the leathers and metallics.
There were classic pieces in one of this season’s finest and most trending material too — velvets! Tom Ford put together full length dresses in black velvet and metallic textile combinations. Several ensembles too had a feel of velvet skirts and blouses. The long, black velvet gowns paired with calf length strappy sandals and the double belt and buckles in H structure that helped tie the pieces of the collection were stunners.
Tom Ford Styling
Other than the belts, buckles were also all over the leather jackets and the leather boots, most of which were in shades of tan and black. The boots were ankle length, some were high knees but all came with extraordinary, patent wedge heels.
The hairstyles came in all forms. Some were pulled back, and there were several models who proudly wore their microphone hairs. The styling was natural and there were no hair accessories used.
As for the necklaces and earrings it’s a different story. These pieces came in huge chunks, as in thick, gold chokers, short necklaces adorned with chunky pendants also in gold. The models wore large, gold drop earrings too. The accessories gave a pop of focus on the otherwise very sophisticatedly toned down look of the browns and the blacks in the collection.
Wearable, luxurious, well executed — these are the words that can best describe the skilful and artistic mind of the one and only, Tom Ford.
