Tom Ford looks to the past for his final collection
It’s the end of an era. With no warning, but after much speculation, Tom Ford appears to have announced his retirement from his namesake label. Following Estee Lauder’s $2.3 billion acquisition of the fashion arm of the business last November, it remained unclear whether the designer would remain at the helm of the luxury brand. Today, a media alert from the brand revealed Tom Ford’s final collection: a reflective offering of re-editions from the last 13 years. To best present the unforgettable looks—there’s sequin football jerseys, a velvet suit, leopard print a’plenty, the Zendaya-approved molten breast plate, and the type of slinky body-hugging gowns that defined an era—Ford called up his go-to gals, including Amber Valetta, Joan Smalls, Karlie Kloss, Karen Elson, Caroline Trentini, and many more. But, is that really it? The LA-based designer handed over the reigns of the CFDA to Thom Browne this year, and hasn’t hosted a runway show during NYFW, or presented a new offering, since September 2022 so all signs seem to point to yes, despite no ‘exit’ interviews or splashy sayonara. In the words of Vanessa Friedman, who was unable to reach anyone for comment,”Well, that was anticlimactic.”
Peep the Steven Klein-lensed campaign, below. The collection will become available in stores this fall, so have your credit cards at the ready.
