From British Vogue online: "Tom Ford abandoned his recent foray into the realm of hippy chick to return to the path of the sexual predator for autumn/winter 2002. Black chokers an crucifixes hung where plunging necklines bared alabaster throats and voluminous capes tied across white chests, promoting a Gothic vision for next season." Am I the only one to find the use of crucifixes as fashion accessories in bad taste? If nothing is sacred, does that mean we must necessarily profane everything? What's next for Tom (not just to single him out as there a number of other designers who do it also), tattoos of pink triangles worn by his models on the runway as some kind of new fashion statement?
