The Sweet Parade Of Excesses In Tom Ford’s Fall/Winter 2013 Show

For his return to the Fashion Week calendar, Tom Ford imagined for the Fall/Winter 2013 season a parade of excesses – excess of colour, excess of texture and excess of print, in a maximalist fantasy that he entitled ”Cross Cultural Multi Ethnic”.

Jackets paved with cascades of paillettes to create a floral motif, ponchos encrusted with shimmering beads, transparent skirts in black lace, ponyskin patchwork coats in an explosion of magenta, coats and bomber jackets with a mix of leopard and zebra print, graphics covering the entire colour spectrum of the rainbow, harem pants embroided from head to toe in sequins that sent shimmers with every move of the body, or maybe a floor-length gown featuring a game of transparencies and embroidery – Tom Ford’s collection was an extremely beautiful style exercise that successfully managed to cover any whim that a fashionista might have concerning her wardrobe acquisitions for the next cold season.
