There are those who will line up for an over-hyped, over-saturated, reboiled Lanvin for H&M (is it really for H&M or is H&M giving Lanvin a fashion lifeline, some double-sided tape to keep them from slipping slowly into Escada times i.e., bankruptcy)… I won’t say more because I could go on forever about the politics behind the H&M collabos.
What I will say however, is that Tom Ford is Jesus and Christ has rose again. Hallelujah. Now here’s a guy who understands that fashion has to be a unique, private little secret. Ford is done with the whole unveiling a collection months before it’s available and right at the beginning of the opposite weather season. Like, do I really wanna see glistening models in bikinis when I’m just about to go into total hibernation mode? Instead, Ford, like me, thinks the season should come out when it’s the season proper – and it shouldn’t be over-saturated in the media. Granted, his godliness has afforded him the possibility to unveil a brilliant collection to five people, months after everybody else, and still make millions. Ford can get as exclusive as he likes and we’ll still pray that one day we too will be among the lucky ones to say “I saw Tom Ford’s Spring collection, in the Spring, nestled in between Beyonce and Julian Moore”.
