Tom Ford as a brand walks that fine line between the classic and the cutting edge, and Tom Ford Eyewear is no exception.
It’s a combination that very few try and even fewer manage to pull off. Tom Ford the man and the brand walk this line with ease giving off that whiff of effortless elegance. They work like Trojans no doubt behind the scenes but on the surface all is calm and measured.
Everything the brand touches has to speak luxury and creative know-how and the sunglasses range is a great example of that. How do you be bold but understated, cutting edge whilst looking as though you’re not trying too hard? The answer is in the detailing and subtle creative touches that speak volumes to the wearer and the observer.
“In eyewear, it is the small detailing that expresses the luxury. Custom crafted hinges, unusual colour mélanges, or simply the look of empty space around the lenses – these are what make accessories into precious objects,” says Ford.
A bold sense of style pervades the range that takes the sunglasses onto a whole new level, whether the original influence comes from 50s or 60s or a twist on the latest catwalk trends. All come with that iconic Tom Ford signature t-bar upon the hinge and over the temple. Each pair is handmade in Italy and it goes without saying that celebrities like to be seen in Tom Ford. Some of his chunky retro style geek-chic sunglasses can regularly be seen perched on the noses of stars such as Brad Pitt and Daniel Craig. Tom Ford Eyewear use the highest quality materials and the subtlest of style twists that give you impact and a timeless elegance whist still managing to stay forward looking.
