There are some things in life that no matter how hard you try it’s just not fair.

1.Some women can eat whatever they like and not gain even a gram
2.Mary Kate and Ashley made gazillions as wee babies.
3.Men don’t have cellulite
4.Tom Ford is gay
5.Tom Ford is making as wait until February to see his debut womenswear collection.
Yes. Tom Ford is has made a collection for women. This collection has been seen by the chosen few (another ‘not fair’ to add to the list) and Tom has chosen to wait until next year for us to get our little fingers on them.

However, I must say his reasoning is so on point you can’t help but love him even more. In the words of the beau himself,

“This fashion immediacy thing — yes, if you can order the clothes immediately, if you can see them and press a button and they can be shipped to your house, I get fashion immediacy.…I don’t get the need for this immediacy. In fact, I think it’s bad.
The way the system works now, you see the clothes, within an hour or so they’re online, the world sees them. They don’t get to a store for six months. The next week, young celebrity girls are wearing them on red carpets. They’re in every magazine. The customer is bored with those clothes by the time they get to the store. They’re overexposed, you’re tired of them, they’ve lost their freshness, you see somebody wearing it…
In addition, all of the fast-fashion companies that do a great job, by the way, knock everything off. So it’s everywhere all over the streets in three months and by the time you get it to the store, what’s the point?”

Never a truer word spoken.

And it means we can save our pennies as we know it’s going to be just grand init. And then we will hopefully be able to buy whatever it is that we know we will all want come February.
