Tom Ford Blog
Our new collection of Tom Ford for Summer21 is now live, but before shopping our new range, here is a little history behind one of the most highly respected designers of eyewear.
About Tom Ford
Tom Ford has always been a pioneer in the fashion industry - famous for turning Gucci into a billion-dollar brand and starting his own fashion house.
Born in Texas, Tom Ford attended New York University majoring in art history, he then studied architecture at Parsons. Tom Ford then went on to lead an impressive range of luxury fashion houses from Chloe, Perry Ellis, Gucci, and now Tom Ford.
Founded in 2006, Tom Ford initially was made up of cosmetics and menswear before branching out into womenswear and of course accessories.
Tom Ford Eyewear
Tom Ford partnered with eyewear manufacturers Marcolin after opening his fashion house, this lead to the distribution of optical frames and sunglasses. The new Tom Ford collection takes inspiration from the shapes colours popular in the 1950s and 1970s. It brings us bold shapes and clean lines with combinations of metals and acetate. It’s all new but unique and recognisably Tom Ford at the same time. The new collection is inspired by the Tom Ford cornerstone concepts of “refined minimalism” and “precious combinations”.
This concept is made up of essential designs, premium materials and timeless shapes
Combining a mixture of acetate and metals, technological innovation, two-tone lenses and unexpected designs.
Of course, iconic Tom Ford Eyewear traits are still present - the classic such ‘T’ metal logo, infinity symbol, and iconic colourways.
The optical collection has followed the same design inspiration but the focus is on blue light lenses. Blue light lenses are the “must-have” solution for people spending extended periods of time in front of computers, laptops, Ipads, and phones. These devices emit potentially harmful UV rays - blue light lenses can help prevent eye strain and eye fatigue. Perfect for both prescription and non-prescription wearers.
