FEARLESS FORD- TOM FORD Fall/Winter 2012 
There were certainly echoes of Ford’s former glories in the 2012 Fall/Winter menswear collection, brought on in part by parallels between this and his equally (if not more) successful womenswear RTW collection.
Big silhouettes, luxurious fox fur, brave lapels and oversized ties- this is the Gucci legacy done at its most courageous and yet somehow restrained. While the womenswear collection was defined by a glam ‘Russian Spy’ aesthetic of capes and body hugging leather, Ford’s menswear remains as practical as ever. Hardened elemental cold weather gear was a staple here, and while fur was utilized liberally and often it was of a texture harder and edgier than anything Ford has introduced before. 
This being the fall, Ford has also revised his colour palette- completing it with chestnut and toffee browns that downplay the butter soft knits and meticulously canvassed tweed jackets of the collection. Could we perhaps be privy to the reveal of a softer side of Ford’s design aesthetic? Who knows, either way we’re still witnessing a confident designer at the apex of his craft.

OUR PICK OF THE WEEK- FORD’S FURY

Nobody does luxury quite like Tom Ford, and if the designer’s foray into luxury opticals/eyewear has not yet struck you, you’d best join the crews of hip-hop stars, design savants and fanboys who already have.

Ford’s latest offering is a limited edition $3000 USD optical set made with gold plating and water buffalo horn- available exclusively at Tom Ford flagships around the world- this splendid pair of frames comes complete with an ornate hand-crafted case and cleaning creme to keep your investment in mint condition.

Ford keeps things clean and minimalist with his signature bar detail on the arms and with a block coloured gold plating that is neither offensive nor ostentatious. Clearly then this is hand-finished luxury at its most tasteful, and definitely something worth handing down to your son, friend or lover.

We’re ready for your close-up Mr Ford……

As of November 4th 2011, Tom Ford will launch his next significant retail venture: the Tom Ford cosmetics line. Composed of 4 key pillars (color, contouring, skincare and scent) Ford approached its creation with key creative consultants from Estee Lauder, while lending his talent for design to the various key products.

The entire line is now available at Bergdorf Goodman starting this month, and Ford has even implicitly mentioned he might consider expanding his talent into the field of men’s cosmetics (a largely untapped resource for the beauty industry).

Apologies about the interviewer, she seems pathologically irritating: desert islands? Your question for the man who revived Gucci involves a preposterous what if scenario and beauty products?

ENJOY!

"One of the most important things is to figure out what your look is – don’t wear this black suit-white shirt combination all the time to try and be iconic – wear it because your comfortable in it"- Tom Ford on style

Scenting the summer season- 3 top picks

Australia has the dubious honor of undergoing a very unsnowy Christmas, and with that comes the harsh heat of the Asia-Pacific summer season. Here’s 3 fragrances to bring about a surprisingly pleasant odor to the first days of summer

TOM FORD Priv ate Blend- Azure Lime
Azure Lime, part of the TOM FORD private blend collection is so predictably excellent at the highest artisinal level that ‘selling’ this product in and of itself is a pointless gesture. Encapsulated in 50/100 ml minimalist bottles, Azure Lime is a dry-as-gin tropical scent that opens with a sprig of bergamot. Chords to follow include lemon, valencia orange, basil and mint. Like any true artisinal fragrance, the final chords transform the warmth of the blend infusing it further with notes of patchouli and musk. A must have for anyone who appreciates a lasting scent with depth and personal character!

(Available at David Jones, RRP $225-$250)

Acqua Di Parma- Colonia
Acqua Di Parma Colonia has been around since the early 1900’s. The fact that the company crafting their self-titled Colonia has actually expanded since then means this is obviously preserving some good tradition. Crafted in the traditional style of haute perfumery, Colonia contains top notes of citrus and florals and is then finished with a sandalwod basenote.  Packaged in a circular and neat little bottle, Colonia is an excellent all purpose fragrance that can make the transition from a day at the office to a night in the bar fairly well!                                        

(Available at www.spacemstore.com, RRP $158.00 AUD)

Comme Des Garcons- PLAY

The house of Rei Kawakubo has a long seasoned history behind it, but aside from the dynamic fabrics, reshaping of ‘fashionable’ symmetry and use of ‘ink’ in perfume CDG also has ‘Play’. A perfect introduction to the world of Comme Des Garcons, the Play eau de parfum is a rich and fresh scent combining gourmand notes such as saffron and black pepper with ‘clean sea air’. Beyond your dime-a-dozen-new-each-season designer label perfumes, Play is evocative of everything that has made CDG an industry favorite staple: it is fun, dynamic and unique…qualities that carry over well to the message the wearer is attempting to convey!                   

(Available at www.meccacosmetica.com.au, RRP $168.00 AUD)


Damn G-D, you rock them Tom Ford’s!
