Tom Ford Will Be Staging His First Men’s Catwalk At LCM This January
Get excited, gents. It has been confirmed that Tom Ford will be putting on his first-ever men’s show at London Collections Men this coming January.
Following seasons of slick, appointment-only presentations at his head office, the American designer will be setting his models loose on a catwalk for autumn/winter 2016 – something he’s never done before for his men’s line anywhere in the world. Needless to say, we’re already chomping at the bit to see what he’s got in store. That said, we’ll all have to contain our excitement for a little while longer as it’s been placed as the final show of the four day menswear festival – a suitably superb climax for the season.
However, that’s not the only shake-up on the schedule. Of course big names like Burberry, Coach and Alexander McQueen are back for another round, but this year they’re joined once again by Moschino and Pringle of Scotland – both bringing their shows back to the capital. And with the closure of the Old Sorting Office (RIP), there’s also a new venue to explore: 180 Strand (aka a gargantuan, Brutalist building, formerly the Deloitte headquarters).
Needless to say there’s also a strong showing from Savile Row stalwart and up-and-comers alike, all giving their takes on what we’re all going to be wearing this time next year.
