Amber Valletta / AW 1995
The fashion rumour mill has been working overtime these past few days. Could Tom Ford really be returning to Gucci?
Since it was announced that creative director Frida Giannini would be leaving the Italian fashion house, (she actually left last week, a month earlier than planned) various names have been touted as possible successors, Tom Ford being the latest, and to date, most talked about.
Georgina Grenville / AW 1996
There are a myriad reasons why the American designer shouldn’t, and possibly wouldn’t, return to the label that made his name, and I have to admit that part of me wants to simply remember his ten great years at the house as they were. Who could forget these iconic campaign images of Amber Valletta and Georgina Grenville? Two of my favourites.
But, another part of me would be curious to see whether he could recreate some of the magic that, in my opinion, has since been sadly missing from his own label. What do you think?
(Update: A spokesman for Tom Ford has now denied the rumours. Watch this space!)
