Tom-Ford-AW14-LOOK-13_1280x1920In the last few years  London Collections: Men has risen to become one of the pinnacle events on the fashion calendar and has given designers an exciting platform to show their work. One of the aspects of this incredible event that intrigues me the most is location. As one of most visited cities in the world London is host to an array of cultures from all around the planet, each with a unique take on all things sartorial. A melting pot of culture, both residents and guests of this wondrous city are treated to it’s famous street culture which is both inspiring and mystifying.

As if this in itself wasn’t exciting enough, Tom Ford has debuted a new line of high top leather sneakers during his most recent show in London for Autumn Winter 2014. The designer has become synonymous with his signature tailoring and vowed to “never do a tennis shoe”, until now. The sneakers are said to be hand-polished in only the best leather available, and from current shots we see can that for now these white soled beauties have a limited colour scheme and design variation. The sneakers are definitely an interesting move for the brand, as it has become famous for producing some of the best suits in the world and venturing away from this is a new opportunity for expansion. Continuing on this, Ford’s vision for this years winter is far more relaxed than his usual offerings with big volume coats and sweaters paired with relaxed knitwear and button-ups and slim trousers. Though Ford experiments more outside of his now famous tailoring, the collection still preserves the vision behind the brand as it grows and expands.Tom-Ford-AW14-LOOK-23_1280x1920Tom-Ford-AW14-LOOK-11_1280x1920Tom-Ford-AW14-LOOK-28_1280x1920
