Guys, can we talk about one of the most epic videos ever? Our favorite badgal is back, and she’s not fucking around. Just like every other single that the singer (apparently now trap artist?) puts out, we all fell in love with Rihanna’s bumping new track when it first debuted a couple months back. And now the infectious tune seems even better, bolstered by something of a short film directed by the star herself. It’s sexual, it’s violent, it’s over-the-top, and it’s kind of everything.
If anyone embodies exclusivity, it’s probably Tom Ford. After his epic comeback a few seasons ago, the legendary designer has stuck to private presentations, his latest comprising of just a few select looks. Yet that doesn’t mean he didn’t have a lot to show.
So how did the man who has his own Jay-Z song dedicated to him live up to his luxury reputation? By creating his own dapper version of James Bond, of course, though this Bond could squeeze in some downtime. A fur trimmed parka enveloped one of the more casual looks Ford has designed, which paired a check shirt with slim trousers and smoking slippers. Afterwards, another superb piece of outerwear was presented via a heavy shearling number. Perfectly placed over an optimal cream-colored knit and light grey trousers, the coat provided an effortless element of sophistication and a slight dose of opulence, something that Tom Ford knows quite a lot about. What was most surprising about this look was the pair of sneakers thrown in the mix. Even he said, “When I started this company I said there is no way I would ever make a tennis shoe.” But Ford did just that with his own high-end signature, creating a pair in brown and burgundy leather and another that comes with the options of black, navy, or white velvet. The second sneakers looked unexpectedly excellent with a midnight blue velvet suit, while Tom Ford finished off the collection with what he does best: a perfectly tailored tuxedo. The one in question featured a pattern detailed blazer with all black basics.
It doesn’t take much for Tom Ford to prove his mastery and command over his own fashion empire, and his latest “quality over quantity” presentation reminded us yet again.
