TOM FORD Mixes Fun with Luxury at London Fashion Week
By SENATUS News | 18 February 2014
Sequined football jerseys emblazoned with the giant letters "TOM FORD 61” grabbed the early headlines at Tom Ford's catwalk presentation at London Fashion Week. The designs were inspired by the non-sequined versions rapper Jay Z wears when he performs the song titled after the designer.

"I just took the knock off from online, and knocked it off," said Ford after the show.

61 refers to the designer's year of birth.

Ford's showcase featured black and red velvet dresses, sporty hoodies and animal print separates worn with high-heel boots. Ford said the collection was about "modest luxury" as well as updates on 1960s' shapes and the styles worn by women in the American West, where he grew up.

"The first dress was actually the same dress that Navajo Indian women have been wearing since the 1920s and still wear," he said, referring to a black velvet dress that opened the show.
