    Modern Luxe. From the legendary party scene at Studio 54 to larger-than-life figures like Halston, Grace Jones, and Warhol, the late 1970’s reflected a design sensibility that was contemporary, fun and fearless. This age of decadent style has once again found a voice on the runways of Tom Ford’s latest collection for Spring Summer 2016. Reflecting his ongoing love affair with the glamorously outrageous “me” decade, the show was full of modern silhouettes, gloss fabrics and an abundance of attitude. Eschewing the traditional runway show format, Ford launched the collection with a stunning video presentation – punctuated by Lady Gaga’s performance of a disco classic and a format that was equal parts runway and Soul Train line dance.

    Shine on. Many of the pieces in Ford’s collection also reflect a trend emerging in home decor. Furniture and accessories playing into this sophisticated trend are never short on sparkle. Reflective surfaces abound – with tables and decorative elements in lacquer, brass, chrome and mirrored finishes. They’re often paired with sensual materials such as rich velvet and leather upholstery, sheepskin and Moroccan inspired shag rugs.

    Live the Look. Like Ford’s latest collection, choosing modern lines and a neutral, monochromatic palette with unexpected hits of orange, green or acid yellow are perfect ways to bring some 70’s swagger into your space. Sleek pieces like MG+BW’s brass Rockwell Console or Lenny Kravitz’s YaYa Coffee Table from CB2, with it’s lacquered finish and clever hidden bar storage compartment, can up any room’s style quotient.
