Fall 2001 Gucci by Tom Ford Runway Look 26 Sheared Mink & Softeest Black Angora Sweater

The twin of this gorgeous little Gucci sweater walked the runway for a Look 26 for the Fall 2001 collection. We have included runway photos here for you to see how sexy this is once on the body along with an editorial shot that we found. During this time period Tom Ford was the Creative Director and was breathing new life into the label. He was known for his slick and simple yet still sexy silhouettes that highlighted every curve of a woman's body. He took over the label in 1994 and his presence was a game changer. His modern take revived the label and brought in a younger audience. In 2001 he was on the top of his game and everyone who was anyone was wearing Gucci. This is a great example of what he was doing at the label at this moment in time. 

This is a beautifully cut sweater and really showcases what Ford was all about while at this label. It is made to sit soft and slightly oversized on the body. The collar and the inside of the cuffs are lined with a soft sheared mink and then the rest of the sweater is made of a black angora. The collar is cut wide across and sits down at one side so that it sits off shoulder and expose bare skin on that side. The sleeves are cut to follow that offset line and this makes it appear that the one on the dropped side is longer and sits lower than the one on the other side. This is on purpose and you can see how this sits in the runway shots here. The body of the sweater is loose and easy and the angora is extremely soft and of an extremely high quality. The cuffs are a full six inches long and they are split up their inside seams. This creates that bit of volume and flare that you see. The mink lines the inside part of the cuffs so you have that incredible softness against your hand. When you move you see just a hint of it. I love the ribbing that is done at the very bottom of the sweater. It lets you move and hold the sweater in place where you wish around the waist and it gives the sweater just enough shape that it doesn't feel unintentionally sloppy. It is very sexy and very sensual. Excellent condition
