California Baby: This Girl Is On Fire!
Tom Ford’s latest collection is called “California Baby”. But make no mistake about it - the woman he’s created hailing from the west coast is like a Phoenix rising from the burning flames of the recent fires that ravaged the golden state. This woman is wild and free. She’s roaming the streets with a confidence and boldness that will bring any experienced power clasher to bow down before her.
This collection has all the precision tailoring and sexiness we’ve come to expect from Tom Ford. But he has definitely unleashed levels of colour and print into a kaleidoscopic controlled chaos that only a master of style over substance can bring to the fashion world.
Expect to see so many of Mr Ford’s offering go from the penthouse to the pavement as the collection is filled with trends that will be all over the high street. Bedazzled bags and tongue in cheek slogans on shoes, printed tights and my personal favourite, dishevelled hair held together with oversized headbands.
As the days get longer and there is more light outside, the Tom Ford woman is current, courageous and not to be placed quietly in a corner. You’ll certainly spot her or her aspirational Zara, TopShop or Primark knocked off self all over the streets of London!
