Tom Ford’s first LFW outing was a spectacular mix of colour, monochrome and animal print

Tom Ford wowed the crowd at his first showing ever at London Fashion Week. His AW13 collection was a diverse mix of colours, monochrome and animal print in a wide range of materials.

Though Tom showed off his SS13 collection in London last year it was a private event. This collection was made to be publicly shown off in full - and the crowd went wild.

A big trend for the new Tom Ford range was clearly animal print, with Zebra making a number of appearances, feeding into a another noteworthy section of the collection, monochrome.

We saw leopard print shawls and jackets and plenty of zebra in tops and dresses with fabulous high collars. Both prints were also seen in dresses and entire suits, and with added metallic edges.

Fur was also huge in over the top coats and jackets and also with plenty of white fur lines to accentuate the cut on jackets and along sleeves.

Vibrant colours were also an important link between pieces, with shocking pink and cerulean blue peacock-esque look making a splash, and fabulous heavily patterned trousers standing out, paired with a black top.

Extravagant patterns, pop art-style prints and lashings of metallics and sparkle were also key. Many of the prints included triangle and star shapes with harsh edges in bright colours. But we also saw some florals (we said it was diverse!).

A favourite piece was the bright red pop-art style dress and incredible zebra print dress with matching shoes.

Beauty was kept simple with accentuated eyes in browns and nude and slicked down, side-parted hair.
