THE EYE-CATCHING ‘T’
Tom Ford has long been one of my personal style icons. Decades on, he 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, and immaculate attention to detail.
So, when I recently attended the SDM Eyewear Media Update, it wasn’t long before my inner sartorialist was salivating over the TOM FORD EYEWEAR Collection. These are my favourite picks from the newest collections – a merge of vintage and contemporary influences – rendered instantly recognisable by the elegant metal ‘T’ detail, the undisputed icon of the brand. There’s a style and shape in the mix for every man.
TOM FORD BACHARDY
Accessorise with confidence courtesy of these TOM FORD Bachardy sunglasses. The softened square silhouette features the signature gold-tone ‘T’ and engraved logo, while the brown tinted lenses reduce glare, enhance colour and depth perception.
