Tom Ford first look: spring 2012 collection for women

There’s Tom Ford‘s (sensible) desire for secrecy around his forthcoming collections, and then there’s social media putting everything before you long before you can actually have it. Every so often the two meet somewhere in the middle, even if that wasn’t meant to be the case.

So it is that we get our first look at Tom Ford’s spring 2012 collection for women by way of Candice Swanepoel’s Twitter account, with Swanepoel one of the models hired for the presentation. A quick flick of her wrist (i.e. she snapped a picture with her smartphone) and you have this sneak peak to peruse.

As with all future Tom Ford collections, details on his women’s spring / summer 2012 collection are few and far between. With a private showing at London fashion week, we do know this much from Cathy Horyn however:

Mr. Ford’s show was thoroughly Tom Ford in its sex appeal and silhouette—tigress hair, smoky eyes, glossy lips, taut skirts and strappy high heels. The collection was loaded up with great day clothes, including loosely laced Moroccan blouses, fringed skirts and some simple but gorgeous dresses with ruching or a belt at the waist and a bubbled hem. A number of outfits also had corsets blended into the tone of the blouse. Equally strong were his evening option of slinky black pants—more like a ski pant—with a simple chiffon T-shirt coated with feathers at the front.

Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is Fashionising.com’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of Fashionising.com’s co-founders.
