His vision for Spring 2024 is bootylicious. Ladies, it’s time to get to the gym and do some squats before next summer.

Peter has the DNA in his blood, and it’s evident. The collection gives total looks, which is what the TF clique wants. Tom Ford SPRING/SUMMER 2024 is filled with tailored suits, bags, shoes and sunglasses. Oh my.
Whenever a new designer takes over a fashion house, their debut is usually about house codes. With Tom Ford, those codes are remarkably fresh in our memories — for one, the house is less than 20 years old, and secondly, the founding designer’s swan song in April amounted to a greatest-hits collection.
There’s also debatably a third reason: Both under Alessandro Michele and since his exit, Gucci — where both Ford and his successor, Peter Hawkings, used to work — have dipped into Fordian codes in recent seasons. Except wait: Whose codes are they, Gucci’s or Ford’s? Ford’s, of course, hence why he started his own label.
The venue oozed Tom Ford’s sexy. It was nighttime, the lights were low, the music was bumping, the decor was minimal yet luxurious, and the front row was filled with hot people in quietly glamorous dresses. The Spring 2024 collection that entered the runway is unmistakably Tom Ford in much the same way, but there’s a bit more restraint: It’s the brand at its most sleek, sophisticated and quiet (except for a few bold metallics).

Words like “ease,” “effortlessness”, and “uncontrived” appeared in the show notes, whereas the brand could often be the opposite. But it could also be the epitome of sexy chic, and this collection has much of that.

The notes describe the debut as “a different gaze on the codes upon which the house was founded, born out of respect rather than deference,” adding that “seduction and glamour are still pivotal, but immediacy, ease, and an evident effortlessness come forward.
The Tom Ford woman is in control, not afraid to attract attention, comfortable with being under the spotlight, but she does so in a rather uncontrived way.” Per the brand, Hawkings was also inspired by Donyale Luna, a Black supermodel in the ’60s and ’70s who served as a muse to Andy Warhol and Richard Avedon.
Which looks would you rock? Or opting for sunglasses or a new handbag. Dream luxury, and don’t be scared to dream big.
