From the fabulous Tom Ford’s uber sexy SS01 collection for Gucci. Ford described the collection’s muse as ” you know, very strong, very tough (with) a….strong feminine silhouette”. And no piece shows that better than this. One of the closing pieces of the collection – and we know you save the best until last – it is a true work of construction art. The soft leather strips mould perfectly to the body, creating an almost armour like second skin whilst the nude mesh under layer holds you softly in place with boning and perfectly shaped padded cups. An absolute fashion collectible – you can wear it as per the catwalk with satin trousers and killer heels or with boyfriend jeans and a blazer for an off duty vamp look
An absolute classic and one that looks as fresh today as it did 10 years ago – truly great design never dates, especially when it comes from the brain of such a master.
