Endelig kom der en video af Tom Ford’s seneste og top hem-melige kollektion. Han valgte jo som en af de få, at lukke dørerne til hans fashionshow, og kun lade Terry Richardson tage billederne. Synes det var super fedt, og videoen viser en übercool kollektion – det var helt sikkert værd at vente på… Siden har han udtalt følgende:
”I don’t get the need for this immediacy. In fact, I think it’s bad.
The way the system works now, you see the clothes, within an hour or so they’re online, the world sees them. They don’t get to a store for six months. The next week, young celebrity girls are wearing them on red carpets. They’re in every magazine. The customer is bored with those clothes by the time they get to the store. They’re overexposed, you’re tired of them, they’ve lost their freshness… In addition, all of the fast-fashion companies that do a great job, by the way, knock everything off. So it’s everywhere all over the streets in three months and by the time you get it to the store, what’s the point?
I’m holding everything back… The clothes are not going out to magazines before January issues. The clothes are not going to celebrities before December. The images are not being released online until December, when they’ll go online on my Web site.”
Tom ford about the ”fashion-calender”.
Citatet er fra Elin Kling – Jeg synes det er fedt at han tør skille sig ud, og jeg kan sagtens forstå ham…
