Fashionisters will be lining up at 845 Madison Avenue on April 12th for the opening of Tom Ford’s boutique and simultaneous launch of the designer’s men’s line. The closely-held collection made in collaboration with Emerenegildo Zegna will boast what Ford calls “authentic luxury.”
His site gives scant details. We can expect luxury ready to wear and made to measure shirts, tailored clothing, shirts, ties, but nary a sketch has been leaked. Nor a prototype previewed.
The man knows that secrecy and exclusivity are strongest catalysts for desire. The lines in front of his store on the morning of 12th should prove he’s right.
