All designers, even if denied personally, evoke a period in time. And Tom Ford is the essence of the 70s and fashion influences of that period such as Studio 54. During his time at Gucci in the 90s his signature look was reminiscent of 20 years earlier. Fur, often in outrageous colours, velvet trouser suits for both sexes, satin or lace shirts, more often than not evocatively undone. The look is about sensuality, tactile, sexy and ultimately extreme glamour.
