Tom Ford opted to forgo the runway for Spring 2016, instead creating an infectious video, which featured disco moves, Lucky Blue Smith and Lady Gaga’s bare ass, to showcase his Spring 2016 collection.
Set to a Gaga cover of Chic’s disco classic “I Want Your Love,” the short was shot by Nick Knight and features an A-list cast of models with moves (a rarity – models tend to be super awkward dancers. Have you ever watched the credits of a Victoria’s Secret fashion show? You know, when all the models dance on stage to some pop song du jour? It’s a disaster). Ford, who typically shows his women’s collections at London Fashion Week (with the exception of last February, when he showed in Los Angeles, coinciding with the Oscars), clearly has movies on the brain; he’s currently at work on his second feature, Nocturnal Animals, which stars Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal.
“Instead of having a traditional show this season, I decided to try something new. I wanted to think about how to present a collection in a cinematic way that was designed from its inception to be presented online,” Ford told WWD.
