Tom Ford starts off NYFW with 80’s prop style fabric garments and cool models to match.

According to New York Time, There were, rather, leggings — lots of ‘em! — in sequins and lamé and silver. There were sharp-shouldered jackets, big (maybe fake) fur coats and blouson satin bomber jackets. There was a little black catsuit with cutouts at the side and a bow at the waist, and a little black dress with a little white collar. There was a menagerie of genetically modified leopard prints, including a group of beaded leopard pantsuits in lurid shades of lipstick red and lime (the mythic cats presumably roam the streets of Los Angeles late at night, stalking their prey).

According to Vogue, “It’s supposed to look like the girls put it up themselves,” hairstylist Orlando Pita explained of the messy, texturized updos held together by bobbi-pins and Ford’s bespoke accessory. Clasped at the nape of the next with Velcro, each band was deliberately placed straight across the forehead and pulled slightly over models’ ears, tapping into the fabulous flash of that decade's Rodeo Drive excess (no coincidence that Los Angeles is currently where Ford calls home.)

“Headbands are great because they automatically dress you up,” Pita admitted, “but these are meant to look tough.” And they did, on girls like Kaia Gerber and Binx Walton, whose lids were slicked with a smoky black eyeshadow, courtesy of the makeup artist Pat McGrath, and whose necks were treated to DIY “mullet tails”—longer lengths that Pita pulled out of place to hammer home the “unbothered” look.
