Tom Ford dressed his models in underwear and woolen socks to bring his fall 2018 men’s show to an end.
The designer debuted his latest collection during New York Fashion Week: Men’s on Tuesday night (06Feb18) and opted to take a less is more approach when it came to his grand finale on the runway.
His selection of models were clothed in statement underwear showcasing a range of materials and patterns, such as metallics and animal prints, which were paired with simple wool socks in black and various shades of nude.
Though the 56-year-old fashion mogul decided to ditch shoes as his show concluded, Ford started the show with an assembly of suede hybrid sneaker-loafers, finished with tassels and thick rubber soles, while other garments to grace the catwalk included metallic blazers, puffer jackets and plenty of eyewear.
Guests, including The Daily Show host Trevor Noah and Snoop Dogg’s model son Cordell Broadus, watched the style spectacle from the front row.
Before the show kicked off, Ford spoke to reporters about the lack of diversity when it comes to the body types of today’s fashion models, and defended his decision to consistently use thin fashion stars.
“There is a practical reason that most models are the same size, and that’s called a sample collection,” he told WWD. “You make a sample collection (according to) a standardised selection of measurements for models.
“I can’t, eight hours before the show when I’m in a fitting and I decide to use a certain girl, custom make an outfit for her. (My clothes) are all made in the same size.”
