There are very few things less grimy, grungy, loud, and yet slightly magical than the New York City subway, which made it the perfect location for Tom Ford to present his Spring/Summer 2020 collection at New York Fashion Week.
The collection, first inspired by an image of Andy Warhol and Edie Sedgwick coming out of a manhole cover in NYC in 1965, featured neon, print blazers, shiny bra tops, silk shorts and a leather track suit. A few standout looks include a pink silk blazer paired with black silk running shorts worn by Kaia Gerber and suit made with black silk pants, a leather blazer and shiny crop top.
While Ford usually shies away from sharing his inspiration, he admitted that this time around he looked to everything from New York, the Beatles in their Berlin years, leather motorcycle jackets and Jeff Koon's polished steel bunny, to running shorts, Bond girls and "the slick nylon basketball shorts that I will never let my son wear to school despite the fact that his friends wear them."

"I always cover my design wall in random things that come into my head having always believed that they are surfacing for a reason. Some look silly the next day but some stick in my mind. That is how I always finally arrive at my mood for the season. This season for me is about simplicity. Which is not to be confused with simple. I think that it is a time for ease, and in that way a return to the kind of luxurious sportswear that America has become known for all over the world," Ford said in a press release.
