>> Tom Ford's Spring 2012 collection was called a "nightmare" by some; now, pictures of the whole offering have surfaced on Vogue.com so you can decide for yourself.
Ford tells Vogue.com that this collection is inspired by the reaction to his first two womenswear collections: “It seems people came looking for what they used to find from me — the ruched dresses, the shaggy fur jackets.” He continues: “My focus is really old-fashioned. I want to do classic clothes. I don’t want to do trendy collections that swing around from season to season. I want to do things that will stay in a woman’s wardrobe a long time — quite ‘forever’ pieces. So I’m looking for consistency.” And how does he define a Tom Ford classic? “Blouses with a loose, slouchy quality; something fitted at the waist, and with a bondage-y thing on the foot — my favorite is the wedge with the chain-strap!”
As for the Fall 2012 season, Ford is already planning to do “ten small, personal presentations” at his London showroom in February, where he'll talk through each look as one by one, his models stand next to him. And about that movie career? “Well, moviemaking has gone away in favor of bag-making,” he told Vogue.com.
