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.
After different collaboration with legendary fashion houses, in April 2005, he announced the creation of the Tom Ford brand. In that same year Tom Ford signed his partnership with Marcolin Group to produce and distribute optical frames and sunglasses.
In April 2007, his first directly operated retail store opened in New York at 845 Madison Avenue to coincide with the debut of the signature Tom Ford Menswear and Accessory Collection. In February 2011, the Tom Ford Womenswear Collection was introduced to clients worldwide.
Predecessor of trends, Tom Ford has long been a style icon who continues to lead and mold the mood of the moment. A potent vision of modernity and glamorous allure can be seen in all his creations and products, which feature an innovative and provocative design, attention to detail and exclusive materials and workmanship.
The brand’s core values are reflected in the eyewear collection: Made in Italy, with a painstaking attention to detail and high quality products. The sunglasses and glasses merge together both vintage and contemporary influences. All the styles are rendered instantly recognizable by the elegant metal “T” detail, the undisputed icon of the brand.
Among the most iconic and desired styles we can count the Whitney, the Jennifer, the Cary, the Leo and the sunglasses worn by James Bond in the 007 Saga Movies (Marko, Snowdon and Henry).
