Tom Ford: The secret NYFW show video. Finally!

Happy New Year, everyone!  I hope you each rang in the new decade with lots of laughter, wonderful memories, and martinis!

Now that it is finally 2011… you know what that means, right?

It is almost time for the launch of Tom Ford’s Womanswear Collection!  Yes, I am blogging about Tom Ford again.  How else could I begin the New Year?!

First a quick message to Santa from me (note: we celebrate Christmas on January 7th since we are Orthodox, so my message isn’t late yet!):

Dear Santa,

I have been a mostly good-girl this year.  You know that all good is no fun, so I am sure you won’t mind.  All I really want for Christmas is for the single, heterosexual twin of Tom Ford to walk into my life.  Since I know I can’t have that, could you please bring me the Tom Ford pajamas Kim Kardashian has on in this photo? I need a new pair of PJ’s and would love these.

Sincerely, B

I love these PJs.  Don’t you?

Tom Ford told Vogue Magazine that his new collection was inspired by the 1970s: “The seventies is what I love. Soft, touchable beauty is what I love. I want to be touching the skin; I prefer no bra—I want to be able to slip in my hand.” Well these PJs certainly fit that bill.  They look touchably soft to me.  However,  as we wait for the official launch of the line, check out the video below to see exactly how inspired by the 1970s Ford really was.  Here we finally, finally have the video from the secret NYFW showing of his debut collection. Although we’ve seen most of it in photos by now there are some new pieces, but finally being able to see the movement of the pieces “live” is what makes it truly spectacular!

I die.

It’s pretty obvious what I am looking forward to most in 2011. What about you? What are you eagerly awaiting?

    I too am in lust with Tom Ford… not for his physicality (not my ‘type’ really) but because of the way he loves women… even though he is gay, he truly loves women… he would make you feel so sexy and sensual and delicious… I once got painted… physically painted, my body was the canvas!… by an artist for his exhibition and it was so surreal and so sensual… simply because my body was being treated like a work of art and and appreciated for all its feminine luxury but it wasn’t reciprocal, as in it wasn’t done because of mutual appreciation or adoration given for ‘ulterior motive’…(gosh I hope I’m making sense, it’s way after 2am here but I need to catch up with my fave blogs! yes yes I’m entering martydom!)… my body was objectively but in a very nourishing manner, worshipped simply because I’m a woman.

    Anyway long story, need to learn brevity… it’s not my forte… Tom Ford is like that… absolutely gay but oh God, he is in to women…!!

    I have watched the show many times now. I’m not in to fashion (despite being in to clothes) but I LOVED this show… it was how fashion parades should be… a celebration of WOMAN. Fantasy sure but oh how glorious.

    Agreed! I am willing to bet that in Mr. Ford’s case, however, he will be keeping his A/W 2011 show press-free yet again. He knows how to ramp up the anticipation for his collection in a way no one else can!

    Oh wow, the video was great. I know it was supposed to be all cool and stuff, but I wish it was a little less edited. I want to see those clothes! Very pretty all of it.

    Love,

    I see what you are saying. It is almost more like a rock video than a typical runway show video. I like the editing though – it leaves you wanting more, which is exactly where he wants us!

    I love, love, love! I seriously lost count of how many times I’ve watched that video today. I’m considering downloading it for my iPod – ha! The clothes, the models (Beyonce, how adorable is she), the candid shots of Mr. Ford laughing. What’s not to love? Everyone looks like they’re having so much fun. What a beautiful evening of fashion and fabulosity.

    I wouldn’t mind a pair of those PJs either. The womenswear collection is being sold strictly in his menswear stores, right? All I ever heard was just “2011, 2011”. Hopefully we get it soon!

    I wish I had been there in person. That has now become a goal on my Bucket list – to be invited to a Tom Ford Womanswear Showing!

    Yes, as far as I know, the collection is being sold in his menswear stores only. I don’t know if there are any plans to expand that at all!

    thanks for the vid
    Made me think of Ali McGraw and Lauren Hutton
    Was a child of the 70’s and loved the fashion even back then.
