Tom Ford has made no secret of his love for the '70s. Since his days at Gucci, the designer has consistently found ways to fuse the best style elements of that decade with whatever is going on in the contemporary fashion zeitgeist. And his new spring/summer 2017 collection continues right along with that trend (with a helping of luxe minimalism thrown in for good measure).

A spin through the collection's lookbook reveals a lineup of both formal and casual clothing that feels like an elegant-yet-louche mashup of Cary Grant, Warren Beatty, Robert Redford, Steve McQueen, and Mick Jagger all rolled into one. With Ford standards of structured wide-lapel suits and bold dinner jackets alongside rock star-worthy leather jackets, bombers, knitwear, and jeans, the new collection is a one-stop shop for anyone who wants to look like a modern version of a classic movie star.

Given Ford's side gig as an A-list film director, not to mention his recent relocation to Los Angeles, it probably shouldn't come as a surprise that his latest designs have a serious Hollywood vibe. But leave it to Ford to sift out the best parts of that vibe and turn it into a lineup of clothes that manage to look both timeless and contemporary.

And to top it off, thanks to Ford's "see-now, buy-now" approach to his collections, these looks will be hitting stores in the coming weeks. So start emptying out that savings account—or, you know, rob a bank; this is Tom Ford we're talking about—and pick up your favorites while you can. In the meantime, check out more from the lookbook below.
