Amid an elegant, luxurious range of fur coats and velvet and cashmere dresses, Ford included two glittering shift dresses, one in black and the other in a rusty orange.

Worn with stiletto boots and a leather trim, they both bore the words TOM FORD 61 and MOLLY, crossed out, on the front and back in white sequins.

It was a knock-off of the jersey Jay-Z has worn while performing his tribute song "Tom Ford", which references the designer's birth year, 1961, and the drug-related lyrics.

In the song, Jay-Z says "I don't pop molly, I rock Tom Ford" -- taken to mean that he doesn't take MDMA, a pure form of ecstasy, instead getting his kicks from a sharp suit.

Ford drew on shapes from the London fashions of the 1960s for the skirt suits and shifts of his autumn/winter 2014 collection, in a palette of black, white and bright red.
