TOM FORD SPRING 2020 RTW COLLECTION
Inspired by the '60s, Tom Ford takes his Spring runway show to the subways of New York.
September 20, 2019
For the Tom Ford Spring 2020 RTW collection, the designer references the famous shot of Andy Warhol and Edie Sedgwick emerging out of a manhole cover. “I think that it’s a time for ease,” he wrote, “and in that way a return to the kind of luxurious sportswear that America has become known for all over the world.”
The collection featured atin blazers cut characteristically strong and worn with elastic-waist nylon basketball shorts. Ford molded plastic tops were a luscious homage to Yves Saint Laurent’s Lalanne breastplates via Issey Miyake. And Ford’s tailored men’s jackets were typically loud and louche. The designer threw a dress coat over a leather bra, cut a jumpsuit so it fell open to expose a strappy bikini top, and sent out a pair of slinky maillots.
The beauty on the Spring 2020 Runway was both inspired by the inimitable New York woman and epitomizes quintessential Tom Ford. Fresh, preternatural skin and intensified eyes with depth and dimension highlighted the woman herself, in all her power and allure. Smoky satin eyes emoted innate sensuality that transcend day or night. Subtle shades of shadow were designed to complement fair to dark skin tones. Incandescent sculpted skin and a warm rosy flush of color with soft sheen on lips and cheeks illuminate strength and innate beauty.
