The Tom Ford Fall 2021 RTW collection featured tops in lace and net that were paired with bleached jeans, and dresses took their cues either from stretchy activewear or lingerie.
“The slight deconstruction of luxurious pieces is something that I feel will be a legacy of the pandemic for a few seasons to come,” he wrote.
Ford’s new hot pants, worn with turtleneck sweaters and puffer or aviator jackets are more micro. Ford said the oversized jackets and underwear combos sprung from a lingerie ad he remembers from his youth.
“It was also a very Edie Sedgwick thing to do,” he added.
His latest relies on a mixture of leather, lace, animal print, and pops of neon – giving this collection a reference to the rock-and-roll ’80s, where the likes of Madonna would have worn some of these pieces. And if you feel you are missing out on some of Tom Ford’s classic suit jackets and blazers, there are some here for you, reenvisioned in satiny cheetah print.
