INSPIRATION Geoffrey Beene 1967... Tom Ford FW 2014||15

It has been a while since I have catched Tom Ford on an inspiration [click here]. The FW 2014||15 collection he has shown yesterday during LFW, was partly inspired by the sixties, and featured some short sequin football dresses [right]. After the show Tom Ford actually admitted to Tim Blanks from Style.com to have created a knock off version, worth $6,500, of Geoffrey Beene's collection from 1967 [left, editorial September issue of Harpers Bazaar 1967]. Well, thanks for doing so Tom, but in my opinion an homage to another designer is always just copying in a polite manner.
