  1. from the only man who s been able to fill the lack of gianni versace i was excepting way more .. this s borderline Cavalli.. i really miss what he did @ ysl which was mr ford at his best

  2. trumancapote, I don’t think his style has ever geared to Gianni Versace, but I could see what you mean by Roberto Cavalli, although I see some Giorgio Armani as well in the mix. I love Tom Ford, but I don’t know if it’s much for his designs as it is for his way of thinking and the detail to make anything be and feel beautiful.

  3. I had no idea Karen Elson was kidnapped from the Sonia Rykiel documentary set to photograph for Vogue! And please, somebody should warn Mr Ford that Ms Carolyn Murphy´s outfit – and all those bulky jewelry bling-blings – is not groundbreaking, since Donna Karan has already played with that kind of propositions like a thousand times before. Nevertheless, the clothes speak to me, but i was expecting much more extravaganza from his first ever women´s collection after YSL and Gucci.

  4. OSCAR- wasn t a comparison on style but on the power n fascination he s been able to bring back in this way to dead business… which this time totally failed..unfortunately

  5. Hold it there folks!
    The looks featured in the debut are pretty spectacular wear by any standard. That look on Stella is beyond dynamite – as is the look on Karen and the pieces in the large group image.

    Relax – This is just the first foray of what is sure to be a spectacle of a future (Heavens forbid that we regain our attantion span…). The oozing glamour is worth more than its weight in gold. Expertise – he got it right – would you really expect him to not know what he is doing – Mr. Ford is a master for a reason, he knows himself and his craft!

    Further more – I recall a recent exerpt in which Ford noted that his direction is not about competing in the fashion race, as it is today – (he doesn’t have to) – hence the boudoiresque showing in September. The lust by some for something oh so “ground breaking” is perhaps misplaced.

    He is in the midst of curating a lasting House of utmost luxury – not a fly-by-night, pomp and circumstance fete that’ll burn out before a candle thus leaving nothing to be desired for the long haul. Don’t forget that -hold this in a larger context …beyond what YOU want – serious work is underway.
