Where all things beautiful collide

I love a good collaboration!  What better joining of two forces then a genius fashion designer, and his fashion muse and friend?  That is exactly what happened when Tom Ford‘s dear friend Lisa Eisner showed up this past summer at Tom’s ranch in Santa Fe wearing her signature statement jewelry of her own design.  Tom instantly knew he wanted Lisa to create pieces for his collection.  And so she did, with a couple of models walking the spring 2015 runway in London wearing a necklace and cuffs by Eisner, with other pieces she created being shown just this week at Ford’s LA outpost.  Eisner definitely channeled that New Mexico energy into the capsule collection, with elements like turquoise and feathers taking center stage.  I wouldn’t peg Tom’s spring collection as Southwestern by any means, but there were some whispers to it, like leather fringe and suede, and by Tom himself taking a bow at the end in jeans and a denim shirt, a first for Tom on the runway.  Sure he lives in  jeans in Santa Fe, but it was definitely unexpected on the catwalk.  He looked just as dapper as he does in his perfectly Savile Row tailored suits.  And back to that jewelry by his dear friend, (who walked in Tom’s debut womenswear collection under his own name) which the chic set was thrilled to take in at the recent fête.  I also couldn’t resist showing again Tom’s ridiculously amazing ranch.  I can just imagine Tom and his husband Richard with their son Jack, enjoying the desert, and riding horses with the likes of the mega stylish Lisa Eisner.  Tom can do no wrong, in the desert or the city, and he proves, yet again, that he only knows chic!
