Men’s Fashion Spotlight – Tom Ford: What’s New for Fall/Winter 2014

The designs of multi-award winning fashion mogul Tom Ford can be seen on almost any red carpet event. Formerly the creative director of Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent, he launched his own line of menswear in 2006. Along with menswear, Tom Ford also has a line of beauty products, eyewear, and accessories. He even ventured out of the designer world into the film industry with his film production company “Fade to Black”, with which he made his directorial debut in 2009.

Although we are only into the beginning of 2014, designers have been working on their collections for the Fall/Winter. We will be taking a look at what is new for Tom Ford’s menswear line-up. Since “black is the new black”, you will see it in many new items for Fall. For example, this black leather motorcycle jacket has the typical styling with shorter rise and the asymmetrical zipper, but it is brought into 2014 with the quilt-like stitching around the shoulders and the fur lining, which makes it a little more versatile in the wintery weather. A “column look” is created by keeping the same color from head to toe. The slim fit of the jacket and trousers make you look long and lean. Also, the highly polished black leather boots work back to the jacket nicely.

Grey is another color that has remained in the forefront of fashion for 2013 and can be found in the Fall/Winter fashion for 2014. Tom Ford has multiple elements of grey with this chunky knit cardigan sweater, sleek grey dress trousers, and fur lined puffer overcoat.

Unique colors and textures have also been carried over to the new season of menswear. This bright navy suit is a prime example of ramping up a traditional style with a color that is rich and intense, to set it apart from the sea of black suits out there. The v-neck knit sweater and high-top sneakers give the look a nice casual appeal.

The last photo is an example of the importance of texture. This well-tailored, black Tom Ford suit is embossed with a velvet-type fabric. Even though he is dressed tonally, the embossing gives it added interest. Also, the tonal look of the jacket keeps it from being too “loud”.

What’s Wrong With This Picture?: Xavier Samuel

xavierwhatever mens fashion
Ah yes, Xavier Samuel of Twilight fame (though I first read his name five minutes ago) decided on the James Dean look for the Much Music Awards. With his black leather jacket, white undershirt, and dark sunglasses, it’s hard to distinguish him from the iconic young American actor. Except, you know, James Dean pretty much popularized this youth-in-revolt approach to fashion over sixty years ago; Xavier probably got the idea from a Calvin Klein commercial. Way to copy a copy of a dead man’s image, Xav – try to be original next time.
