Tom Ford to launch luggage, jewelry

Tom Ford continues to suppress talk that he’s planning on re-entering into the world of women’s wear, but he’s happy to expand his collection of accessories. At Monday night’s Accessories Council Awards, where Ford was honored with the Accessory Brand Launch accolade for his line of sunglasses produced in conjunction with Marcolin, the designer revealed he’s developing a collection of luggage and high-end jewelry, set to debut following the opening of his eponymous Madison Avenue boutique next April. “It’s a natural progression of the brand,” Ford said.
