Tom Ford’s Autumn/Winter 2017 lookbook operates with one sartorial agenda: deliver the definitive, lustrous style we expect from the brand, while inspiring us with something new. The brand’s signature suits, as seen in its Spring/Summer 2017 campaign, are renewed this season in monochrome, with double-breasted and pinstriped jackets pairing with semi-flared and straight leg pants. Adding a fresh slant are ’70s-inspired designs, boasting warmer tones of burnt sienna, powder blue, and sea green, and featuring in cheetah, camouflage, and floral prints. Characteristic of the brand, the range gravitates toward formalwear, though casual styles are dressed up with velvet, suede, and shearling. The minimalist photography is also unmistakably Tom Ford: tenebrous backdrops that avoid dramatizing the range and bring the attention back to where it’s needed. The combined collection champions the pivotal challenge of reinvention facing major fashion powerhouses of today.
