Tom Ford’s Spring 2021 NYFW collection, is a much needed escape from reality we’re all seeking during these trying times. Ford’s extroverted collection invites a new way of envisioning vibrant hues, floral prints, and silky textiles bringing us back to a time of boldness, vibrancy, and edge that was most notably reflected during the 80’s.
Ford’s creative and design visions highlight the lighthearted aspects of spring that foresee a newfound sense of hope, faith, and renewal despite the many challenges the world has had to face as a result of the pandemic.
In commentary about the collection, Ford states, “The last thing I want to see are serious clothes. I think we need an escape. I think we want to smile. I know what’s going on in our world right now doesn’t make us want to smile. So that’s what I’ve done: hopeful clothes that make you smile.”
Ford’s vibrant NYFW 2021 collection is a much needed reminder to keep moving forward. His ready to wear spring/summer line puts an emphasis on what we’re wishing we experience during the warmer seasons. Hope, optimism, and more fun, are just a few key phrases to describe this timeless collection, and some of what we can expect to see from this optimistic Texas transplant.
