In a surprising and oh-so welcome turn of events, Tom Ford has reimagined his Spring Summer 2016 runway show – as a music video for Lady Gaga’s specially produced cover of I Want Your Love. The upbeat disco tune is brilliantly offset to a video of models such as Lucky Blue Smith walking the ‘runway’ to the song, whilst the others dance in the FROW. Gaga has recently spoken about her upcoming fifth album, which is rumoured to have a strong disco influence throughout, so this could be the perfect taster for what’s to come. As for the show itself, considering the recent tackiness of certain shock-tactic runways (human backpacks, anyone?) this serves as a nice little reminder that fashion should be, above all, two things; fun and frivolous. This is one fashion show we’re all invited to.
