>February 5, 2016 might go down in history as the day it sank in that the whole fashion system is about to reconfigure.
>Ford has called off press previews of his Fall 2016 collection, which were scheduled in New York for next week, and will show and sell the offering, all in one go, in September. “In a world that has become increasingly immediate, the current way of showing a collection four months before it is available to customers is an antiquated idea and one that no longer makes sense,” Ford said in a release. “Our customers today want a collection that is immediately available . . . Showing the collection as it arrives in stores will remedy this, and allow the excitement that is created by a show or event to drive sales and satisfy our customers’ increasing desire to have their clothes as they are ready to wear them.”
Where were you when Tom Ford revolutionized the fashion world (again)?
Other brands are already doing this. Also Burberry did it first. Also not all brands can afford to produce everythin beforehand and this could easily backfire if you produce a shitty collection (which is all Tom Ford has been doing since he left Gucci).
m8 Tom Ford has never put out a bad collection. get that dick out of your eye
they don't have diffusion anymore
I don't wear either brand but if Rick started doing this, I'd love and hate it. I need the time between the shows and the drop to save up dosh, but it'd be nice not to have to wait.
>not liking Tom Ford
you some kind of pleb anon?
Lads what are the best Ford jackets and coats? Preferably lighter colors like >>10925978
depends which collection you're looking at and what material you're interesting in
>unironically disliking Tom Ford
don't you have burgers to flip
most people on here don't know shit about TF so it's a waste of time to ask. I think his overcoats are top notch, along with his leathers
all his clothing is Zenga sourced btw
because he's a typical /fa/ggot who mistakes memes for quality
Dreaming dreams of what used to be.
No regrets, no love, no tears.
Oh that delicate skirting.
Same thing with the jackets, they crease like hell where the buttoning is, and you can see how the lapels bend outward into "triangles" (if you get what I mean) even when he's standing straight at times.
I get that they wanna show off his muscles, but come on.
Let's be honest here, Ford can get away with it business wise because his stuff always gets bought regardless. Now there is more anticipation but I wonder if it's actually significant towards the sales. I like that he's trying to do something new, but personally speaking I would always prefer runway above this, it's what separates high-fashion from ordinary retail in one aspect.
Tom Ford is my nigga.
And the SS2016 video with Lady Gaga is just mindblowing.
Jesus Christ, this is why I love fashion.
this is silly
you need to allow time for retailers to select pieces to stock, time to ramp up production for the most popular pieces, time to get them to retailers, and time for the retailers to rotate stock
what happens if you try and immediately sell the collection you showed and retailers don't pick up half the pieces or they pick up most of the collection and it doesn't sell?
the reason fast fashion works is because companies like H&M and Zara are operating a bit behind the designers and have time to see what's trending before deciding what shit to knock off
is ford so confident in his designs that he's willing to take such a big gamble?
I always wondered why they didnt do this. Of course it makes sense in older times when we didnt have production and communication capabilities that we do today, but we've moved beyond that and do have those things.
That said, I doubt anyone here has a full TF wardrobe.
I don't remember if that was the case in Casino Royale (best Bond movie ever, by the way), but it's been the case in Skyfall and Spectre.
On a different note, I read an article where they said they sew up like 10-15 pieces of each suit he wears, all with slightly different details made specific for certain scenes. Like 10+ of the light grey sharkskin suit he wears in the opening scene of Skyfall: some were made specifically for when he's standing straight, some for when he was fighting on the train, some for when he was riding the motorbike etc.
this video sums it up well
Cool, cheers man!
Maybe it's intentional, then, considering that she says she wanted to stay true to the classic Bond look (very British, formal), just bring it into the year 2012.
This one mate, check it out:
Its not always about who invents it but who brings the idea to the mainstream. Vetements is relatively unknown compared to Tom Ford
Tom Ford confirmed as one of the GOAT designers (and the best of the 2000s)
