Tom Ford Springs to Summer

Tom Ford did a Karl Lagerfeld and shoot own Spring/Summer 2012 campaign, which turned out to be infectiously happy. It showcases rich jewel tone suits, shirts and skirts that are perfect for between seasons, but the overall attitude screams of spring.

As for the models, Tom Ford chose Mirte Mass, a 20-year old Dutch beauty, who had a monumental season for a newcomer walking 36 shows for big names like Chanel, Prada, Chloé, Versace and Louis Vuitton to name a few.

..and a male import from Sweden Mathias Bergh, who landed four campaigns in his debut season.

You may notice that the ankles are a focal point of the collection, it comes at no surprise that Ford saw this through into the campaign with Mathias Bergh nibbling away at Mirte Mass’ ankle.

But what’s the fascination with female ankles you ask? Well, ever since we raised our skirt lengths above the ankles, men have been intrigued… Think of it as an appetizer to where they lead.

Did you know Zeigfield wouldn’t allow girls in his Follies whose ankles and knees didn’t touch. It was a sign of perfectly proportional gams.

There you go ladies, this season according to Mr. Ford, ankles, affection, laughing and occasional nudity are in.
