Tom Ford’s Spring 2013 ad campaign is the latest to revisit the swinging sixties
Joining the ranks of Prada, Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors, Tom Ford’s just-released Spring/Summer 2013 ad campaign takes us back to the swinging sixties. This time, the much referenced decade has been given a refreshing spin through Ford’s signature seductive lens, with four shots starring a Barbarella-style Karlina Caune and James Bond-esqe Simon Van Meervenne outfitted in Tom Ford’s latest designs.
The buzzed-about bondage-inspired gladiator heels that Anne Hathaway wore to the New York Les Miserables premiere are prominently featured in the ad, making for a slight tinge of the perverse—another Tom Ford signature. While Hathaway’s pair were completely vegan, the ones featured are made of patent gold leather and will also be available in croc print.
Always one to top himself, Tom Ford’s first runway show—the first shown since launching his namesake line—will surely be a must-see stop during London Fashion Week.
