Shades of Tom Ford
When it comes to identifying men who possess consummate style, Tom Ford tops the list. The designer, who recently directed his second feature film Nocturnal Animals has spent most of his life developing style for the modern man and woman.
This year marks a decade since Ford established his eponymous label after leaving Gucci. It’s been a remarkable 10 years that have taken Tom Ford from a fledgling startup to a billion-dollar fashion business. It is testament to his understanding of what the modern person wants in terms of style: flamboyance, but with taste and quality, and the right amount of attitude.
That is true of the eyewear he offers as part of the broad range of Tom Ford accessories. This season the dapper American designer takes inspiration from vintage elements and modern influences to create a luxurious collection oozing with attitude.
By constantly playing on traditional eyewear and adding his own twist to it or experimenting with premium materials and colour tones, he’s made Tom Ford eyewear a style essential, hinted at with the subtlest indication of his brand, a ‘T’ at the sides of the frame.
