I found this Tom Ford documentary on the Fashion Copious site, which is one of the most interesting fashion sites I visit. It has an intelligent quality, being both visually beautiful and with a definite opinion on what makes for good fashion.
I found the documentary to be fascinating, it really revealed how Tom Ford works, following him during his work. The overarching storyline is the lead-up to the launch of Tom Ford’s first womenswear collection, which was about a year ago. So even though neither his menswear or his men’s fragrances were included it was a very interesting documentary.
Looking at it a second time, I think that what makes it so interesting is Tom Ford’s willingness to reveal himself and his unique view of how style works. I really felt I learnt something in watching this video. I think that Tom Ford is the most interesting designer working at the moment, with Ralph Lauren coming a distant second.
See what you think, the documentary is here.
