Tom Ford’s Sailorcoat

maandag, augustus 31st, 2009

Tom Ford’s SailorcoatIt’s not often we see a winter coat in white. If anyone can make it work, it would definitely be Tom Ford. Continuing further with the naval trend, Tom Ford raises the bar with this sailor’s coat for Fall/Winter 2009. Made of wool and cashmere, this white double breasted coat is slightly longer than a traditional pea coat and is highlighted with black buttons and trim around the pockets. Definitely not for one that enjoys obscurity.

10 Rules of Style (according to Tom Ford)

donderdag, augustus 27th, 2009

Tom FordHere are his 10 style rules to live by:

1.

I don’t believe in playing around much with suit cuts. I like a fairly classic shape that gives a man strong shoulders, a fitted waist, and long legs. Classic simplicity always works.

2.

Someone who is secure enough to be very present when relating to another person is sexy. In other words, a good listener always lands who he wants.

3.

When mixing patterns, don’t think about it too much—just throw it together.

4.

I hate the trend of short suit jackets. When a man’s butt is showing below the bottom of his jacket, I think it makes him look like a female flight attendant from the back—not my idea of sexy.

5.

With jewelry, I actually like bracelets more than anything else, but they have to be small and simple. Cary Grant always wore a simple gold bracelet with his watch, and I think that was very chic.

6.

If you’re careful not to overuse Botox, then yes, why shouldn’t you use it? A little bit of it between the brows can make you look less stern and more approachable. Who needs to frown, anyway?

7.

Just like girls need to learn to be comfortable in heels before they go out in them for the first time, a man should try wearing a suit throughout a normal day. I do most things in a suit—and sometimes even in a tuxedo—and so I’m really comfortable in one.

8.

When it comes to grooming, keep earwax out of the ears and keep stray hairs and flakes of skin in check and you should be good to go. In the morning, I put ice cubes on my eyes and use lots of Visine.

9.

Time and silence are the most luxurious things today.

10.

There’s one indulgence every man should try in his lifetime: If you’re straight, sleep with a man at least once, and if you’re gay, don’t go through life without sleeping with a woman. Either way, you might be surprised at how natural it will feel if you can get past the mind-fuck of stereotypes. In the end, it’s just another person that you are relating to in a physical way.

Tom Ford vs. Karl Lagerfeld: Which Home Do You Like Better?

dinsdag, augustus 25th, 2009

Seems like there’s a lot of buzz surrounding the high fashion industry these days…after all, it is certainly not every day that the Bobbed One appears on Letterman. And now we hear that Tom Ford has put his London townhouse for sale a cool £8 million (about $13 million to us on this side of the pond). After perusing the photos of his chrome-plated pad, we began a friendly debate in the office about which home we preferred: Tom Ford…or the legend of Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld? Decisions, decisions…

Tom Ford vs. Karl Lagerfeld

To be honest, it’s not too much of a struggle for us: Karl Lagerfeld is such an oddity (and we mean that in the best, most fascinating way possible). Can you imagine having a conversation with him? No, we can’t either. (Well, yes we can, and we hope it would be something like this). But we do like how his library matches his persona: excessive, shiny, but with personality:

As for Tom Ford’s place, it’s certainly impressive. And it has chrome walls, which seems pretty swanky; but at the same time, it could give someone the feeling of being trapped in a commercial grade refrigerator or an air vent:

woensdag, augustus 19th, 2009

Tom Ford“A Single Man,” the directorial debut of fashion designer Tom Ford, will head a record 14 films in the third edition of the Queer Lion awards at the Venice Film Festival.

The Queer Lion prize selects the best film with a gay plot or subplot screening at the festival or in one of its sidebars. Ford’s story of an academic struggling with the loss of his partner is the only Queer Lion candidate that’s also in the main 24-film lineup.

Other selections include “Io sono l’amore” (I Am Love), a drama from Luca Guadagnino screening in the Horizons sidebar; Stefani Consiglio’s “L’amore e basta” (Love Is Enough) from the Venice Days sidebar; and Claudio Noce’s “Good Morning Aman,” from the Critics’ Week sidebar.

Queer Lion organizers also announced the jury that will evaluate the 14 films in the running for the prize. It will be headed by film directors Gustav Hofer and Luca Ragazzi, with participation from journalist Mark Smith, film critic Roberto Schinardi and director Peter Marcias.

The sidebar will be held concurrently with the 66th edition of the Venice festival, which runs September 2-12. The winner will be announced on the fest’s second-to-last day.

New collection of Tom Ford

woensdag, augustus 19th, 2009

New fall 2009 collection of Tom FordPhotographed by Tom Ford, Jon Kortajarena retains his monopoly as the face of Ford’s clothing and eyewear lines. For fall’s campaign, it is the typical suiting affair with the addition of Jon stripping down to nothing to show off this season’s eyewear. With that, it should come as no surprise that there is nudity after the cut.

Tom Ford turns model

woensdag, augustus 12th, 2009

Grey Vetiver Tom FordWho needs to hire a top model when you can take pride of place in front of the camera yourself? That’s clearly Tom Ford’s attitude. The designer-turned-film-director is appearing in the new ads for his own Grey Vetiver perfume. And doesn’t he look pensive. And hot! Plus, as well as being a pro in front of the camera, Tom’s clearly good behind the lens too. He photographed his eyewear campaign featuring Anna Maria Jagodzinska himself. Is there anything this man can’t do?
