Tom Ford used his first fully-fledged men’s runway show in New York to unveil a debut underpants collection.
It was a fall/winter 2018 collection of quintessential Tom Ford tailoring and statement sunglasses, offering the international jet-set a blend of James Bond, ski chic, London mod and California breeze.
His models strode out on a violet-carpeted runway at the Park Avenue Armory to the strains of Sting and Lana Del Rey, his Tobacco-Vanille fragrance hanging thick in the air and distributed as party favors at the end.
Based in Los Angeles, Ford is best known for his sharp suits, which start at US$5,000 (RM19,537) off the rack.
Launching both the underwear and watches at his show, Ford described the former in his WWD interview as “very sexy” and “very real.”
The show comes a decade after the designer, who shot to fame at Gucci, launched his eponymous men’s label. Apart from a show to open his London store, he has previously done small men’s presentations.
