Snapshot: 90’s Tom Ford for Gucci

I love seeing how iconic designer clothes integrate themselves into everyday life. I’m not talking about party pictures or photo shoots – I’m talking real life. How they get worn at home or on vacation, how they get mixed together with things you already own or adapted to work in your particular lifestyle. The below photo I took of my friend Lulu Anderson in the south of France in the late 90’s. She was fashion editor at the London Telegraph at the time and was so delighted to get her hands on this Tom Ford for Gucci dress from his famous hippie collection. Even more delightful was when designer Jasper Conran and his boyfriend showed up for lunch in matching short shorts from the same collection. Do you remember what year it was? Was it ’98?

I will NEVER forget that print because it was so modern and retro at the same time. Thanks for including it.
