Holding out on magazines until December paid off for Tom Ford. Ford’s collection was already featured in a dedicated Vogue December 2010 editorial, but I have the feeling that the forthcoming W Magazine’s Tom Ford editorial is going to be my favorite.
“Major Tom” is the new Tom Ford editorial featured in W Magazine January 2011 issue. Ford’s new Spring 2011 collection is of course showcased, alongside an interview, in a photoshoot by Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Madin, modeled by Lara Stone.
In the interview Tom Ford opens up about the women who inspired his collection:
About Daphne Guinness: “Daphne is about structure, so the most important thing is that her dress is corseted and shows off her incredible figure. She is also not a shrinking violet and can pull off fashion looks that many would be afraid of. I wanted her to have one of the most dramatic looks in the show.”
About Rachel Feinstein: “Every time I see Rachel, I am dazzled by her smile, and I think about color. Rachel is all about color.”
About Karen Elson: “Karen in such an exotic beauty, I always love dressing her in color that plays off her skin tome and hair color.”
About Lou Doillon: “Lou is young and has an amazing body. She was the perfect person to wear a catsuit-Le smoking.”
