Tom Ford says that when he gets depressed, he dresses especially nice: “I go through a very precise ritual getting dressed in the morning. In a sense it is armor; I’m building up a layer. If everything in my material world is in order, I will be able to get through it.” This is a ritual that Ford transfered to his woebegone protagonist in his directorial debut, A Single Man (a pocket square over the heart in an impeccably tailored suit). When the ferris wheel turns and we’re suddenly down, not up, the fashion that’s most important is that which contains us, that which cocoons us in comfort but also gives something away—a hole cut out at the center of a shoe’s platform, like the one in our hearts; a veil of tulle, thin, as in our skin; the slouch of a blue, blue kimono, the most blue—because the depressed person loves a tragic symbol. :(
