Tom Ford FW24 Reveals That Reinvention Isn’t Always Needed

There’s power in refining what works.

Last September, Peter Hawkings made his debut as the new creative director at Tom Ford, coming behind the celebrated American designer himself. Undeniably big shoes to fill, Hawkings rose to the occasion with a Spring/Summer 2024 collection that emphasized the layered, yet sexily sleek core that makes up Ford’s eponymous label. With his second turn at the Ford rodeo, this time for the Fall/Winter 2024 season, Hawkings is still leaning into what made the American label great to begin with.

To execute a Tom Ford collection correctly, tailoring has to be in tow. The most overt staples like suits and blazer separates appear in both deep neutrals, soft creams, pinstripes, golden tones, shimmers of silver and hues from the royal family of purple. But tailoring also extends to Hawkings’ lineup of outerwear that sees wool overcoats, wrap coats and cropped jackets – some of which are accentuated by classic, yet still striking gold buttons.

Another prime feature of the Tom Ford wardrobe is texture. Ford has always understood that alongside color and silhouette, texture is a focal driver in what makes garments stand out. So Hawkings knew to continue this feat as pieces across jackets, dresses and tailoring see alligator-embossed leathers, movement-filled furs, glistening chainmail and shining sequins. Even though it’s just Hawkings’ second collection as creative director at Tom Ford, it is evident that the designer is keen on keeping Ford’s vision of sexy, yet quintessentially wearable and timeless clothes alive.

Take a look at the new Tom Ford FW24 collection in the gallery above. Stay tuned for Hypebeast’s coverage of Milan Fashion Week.
