Theres nothing like a sneak preview of Tom Fords new-season ad campaign pinging into your inbox to cheer up a cloudy Thursday especially when the master of the shock is on top form.
For autumn/winter 2013 the comic book-inspired collection, which is the first Ford has shown on the catwalk in several seasons and in London, no less is brought to life via models Soo Joo, Zuzanna Bijoch, Gem and Herieth Paul. Ford shot the images personally, again in London.
Reporting on the show in February, ELLEs Rebecca Lowthorpe wrote: The overall effect was of a decadence that could only possibly be enjoyed by the worlds most wealthy. They will surely love his monochrome section of patchworked furs and leathers with long swishing fringes, or the sportswear loosely termed that included multi-bright floral beaded hoodies.
As for the knee-high heeled boots, that came with almost every look and were lavished with every conceivable luxury material imaginable only the limo-driven need apply.
The good news for those of us who cant afford to go full-look? Apparently, the recommended way to style it is half-body only, anyway.
