Angels or demons. That’s how Tom Ford presents his new autumn-winter 2011/2012 collection. The king of American fashion has this time relied on the South African chameleon supermodel Candice Swanepoel to be the new face of the brand’s female proposals.
The Texan designer has succumbed to the charms of the top model with that strong erotic charge that she this time lets out hiding the sweetness she also possesses and that we can see when she is on the runway as an angel for Victoria’s Secret.
Of course it wasn’t enough with the talent of the American designer and the mysterious and erotic top model, something more was needed. The fashion photographers turkish-french Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott catch our attention with their snapshots and transmit the philosophy of the maestro.
The Victoria’s Secret angel with prominent eye shadows and blood red lips portrays the mysterious and somewhat wild character that Ford wanted. Lace, velvet and fur in hats or stoles build balanced looks. The designer’s accessories with razor-sharp heels have a touch of “bondage” and create the perfect outfit with the tailored suits.
Red, fuchsia, white and black are admitted into the sensual collection of the master. Although this time it is wild but without being less elegant. Tom Ford leaves nothing to chance when designing his collections, neither the rich materials nor the balance between the garments or their shapes. He says: “If everything about a garment is nice, it will sell. If it’s more than nice you have to own it or you’ll die”. That must be the secret of his success.
