Show Review: Tom Ford Fall 2014
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

It should come as no surprise that Tom Ford‘s designs would serve as “inspiration” for high-street retailers. After all, his show is one of the hottest tickets at London Fashion Week, and he’s got a myriad of celebrity fans, most notably Beyoncé and her husband Jay Z, who penned a certain popular tune about the designer’s wares. Ford went on record last year saying he can tell if his collection’s been a success once he sees the knockoffs: “If I’m lucky and I did the right thing, they will be at Zara way before I can get them in the store, and I don’t like that.”

This season, it seems Ford beat Zara to the punch, having sent out a slew of pieces almost indistinguishable from something you might find in the Spanish retailer’s lookbook. But perhaps that was his intent. There were plenty of work-appropriate black separates with laceup necklines and leather detailing, as well as simple shells rendered in leathers, furs, velvet, and sequins.

Some of the more interesting pieces included a few hooded turtlenecks and those sequined “Tom Ford” jersey dresses with the word “Molly” crossed out. Ford says these were “a knock-off of a knock-off,” inspired by some Magna Carta world tour merch.

 The outerwear options were the real stars of the show. From leopard printed ponyhair jackets to two-toned fluffy fur coats, Ford failed to disappoint, at least on that front.

Overall, I wouldn’t say there’s anything groundbreaking here, but I have no doubts that this stuff will sell. It’s Tom Ford for goodness sake. Still, I couldn’t help but crave something a little more exciting than what was put forth. As for Bey and Jay, I’m sure they’ll love everything.

    Thank you for being honest. This was not the most creative collection of work.

  2. This isn’t as excitng as I thought it would be considering it is Tom Ford and we have seen some stand out pieces from him in the past.

  3. Jbrizzy says:

    I liked the fur coats but otherwise a very forgettable collection. Idk but fashion week kinda seemed like a flop this year. I only liked one show so far tbh

  4. Kim D. says:

    The black turtleneck with the white skirt trimmed in black, handbag, boots, belt, hat. Yes to the whole outfit. Love it.

  5. NYC chick says:

    Tom Ford = over-rated but then again I don’t like Gucci either

  6. Jackie O. says:

    Question: How does a brand/designer become “over-rated?” Is it once a rapper starts rapping about it/repping it or when it no longer becomes exclusive?? Does it depend on the rapper that reps it and the the fan base that follows suit??? Because I still consider Tom Ford very high end nods from Jay-Z aside.. But then again that could just be me..
