The Tome Fall 2014 Fashions Channel Strength and Softness at Once

— February 8, 2014 — Fashion
The debut of the Tome Fall 2014 collection at New York Fashion Week was a big moment for Australian designers Ryan Lobo and Ramon Martin, since this was the brand’s first ever runway show.

One of Tome’s inspirations for the collection was Shirin Neshat, an Iranian artist living in NYC. Her work focuses primarily on addressing the political and psychological issues for women in modern Middle Eastern countries. Since this is a lot of subject matter to deal with, Tome channeled Neshat’s presence — “strong and soft at once.”

This theme is carried beautifully throughout the sophisticated collection of dresses and separates. While the lines of the gameness remain very crisp, the materials also have a fluidity to them. Most of the looks are grounded in neutrals and dark tones, but occasionally these are punctuated by rosy pinks and vibrant reds. Satin debutante gloves make appearances several times, making it the must-have accessory from the Tome Fall 2014 line.
Trend Themes
1. Fluid Fashion - The use of fluid materials in fashion creates a sophisticated and soft aesthetic.
2. Incorporating Neutrals - The grounding of neutrals in fashion with occasional pops of vibrant colors brings a balanced and eye-catching look.
3. Influence of Political Art - The incorporation of political and psychological themes in fashion shows the power of bridging art and fashion.
Industry Implications
1. Fashion Design - Fashion designers can explore the use of fluid materials to create soft and feminine designs.
2. Accessories - The rise of satin debutante gloves as a must-have accessory creates opportunities for accessory designers.
3. Art and Fashion Collaboration - The integration of political and psychological themes in fashion opens doors for collaboration between artists and fashion designers.
