News: Tom Ford Eyewear Special Edition Fall Winter 2012

Tom Ford announces the launch of a Special Edition Optical Eyewear Collection for Fall Winter 2012. Inspired by the enduring elegance of 1950s eyewear, Ford has created a new frame for women and a frame for men made of the finest quality gold-plated metal with precious water buffalo horn on the front and the temple tips.

These gently retro-influenced frames represent the highest levels of design and fabrication in eyewear. Subtly luxurious and crafted with meticulous workmanship, the two styles are some of the most refined ever offered by Tom Ford Eyewear.

Each frames and its leather case is presented in a luxurious, Bakelite box with a soft brown lining. A certificate of authenticity and a special cleansing cream and chamois cloth are provided to care for the water buffalo horn, which may appear slightly different on every frame due to its organic origin.

The Special Edition women’s frame hints at its 1950s roots through defined lines at the nose. This is balanced by slender and elegant metal temples embellished with an understated “T”, a signature of Tom Ford Eyewear. The women’s frame is offered in yellow-gold plated metal with brown and gray striped horn or yellow-gold plated metal with white and gray striped horn.

The men’s frame has slightly stronger temple proportions. It is offered in white-gold plated metal with brown and gray striped horn or yellow-gold plated metal with black striped horn.

The exclusive frames will be available for $2,950 in Tom Ford boutiques and select luxury department stores.

Born in Austin, Texas and raised in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Tom Ford is among the most highly respected and successful designers today. The winner of numerous design awards, his rise in fashion began in 1994, when he became creative director of Gucci.

Not only did he dramatically change the image of the legendary fashion house, he also led the company to unprecedented success with his visionary insight into what the modern consumer desires. His innovative and provocative designs set the tone for an entirely new direction in the world of luxury goods. In 2000, Ford also took creative control of Yves Saint Laurent, a Gucci Group brand, reviving it with his trademark combination of sensuality and mystique.

In 2009, Ford directed, produced and co-wrote his first feature film entitled ‘A Single Man’ through his film production company, Fade To Black. The Academy Awards nominated film has received multiple awards including the 2009 Best Actor award for Colin Firth at the Venice Film Festival.
