A glimpse at Tom Ford's Spring 2012 collection
There may have been no photography (or tweeting!) allowed at the London Fashion Week presentation of Tom Ford's SS12 collection, but that didn't stop this sneaky pic from leaking out. While the source of this photo is yet to be determined, the folks over at The Fashion Spot claim it came from Candice Swanepoel's Twitter account. He, I kind of love a rebel Victoria's Secret Angel!

But back to the collection... According to those who were actually there, namely Cathy Horyn of the NY Times, the show was "thoroughly Tom Ford in its sex appeal and silhouette - tigress hair, smoky eyes, glossy lips, taut skirts and strappy high heels."
However The Guardian's Jess Cartner-Morley was less impressed: "I'm going to come straight out with it. Deep breath: I didn't think Tom Ford's show was all that. Not that it was awful, by any means, but despite the beautiful tailoring and the immaculate execution it fell a little flat. It felt too self-referential. Too many frills and too few new ideas. There were gorgeous, curvy, super vamp dresses that I loved, but the flouncy peasant blouses and corset belts seemed like a Guilty Pleasures version of Tom Ford."
I guess we'll just have to wait until some official photos surface, erm whenever that will be.
