TOM FORD TO OPEN IN BANGKOK, THAILAND

Tom Ford announces the opening of a new TOM FORD store in Bangkok. Scheduled to open in May2014, the freestanding store is located inside the Bangkok Central Embassy complex on Ploenchit Road.

Located in Ploenchit road, Bangkok’s new luxury retail district connected to Central Chidlom, the TOM FORD store at the Central Embassy will offer the complete collection of TOM FORD Menswear and Womenswear, including shoes, eyewear and accessories, as well as the TOM FORD Beauty collection of fragrances and cosmetics.

Upon entering the Bangkok store, clients will discover an elegant environment designed to express Mr. Ford’s personal design aesthetic. It has the feel of a beautifully appointed private home steeped in soft modernism, formal symmetry and timeless luxury. It is beautifully outfitted in the designer’s signature monochromepalettes of pale gray and deep brown tones, accented with chrome and glass. The architecture is anchored in the formal enfilade style: A series of salons unfolds on a single axis, providing a view through the entire suite of rooms.

Clients enter the store through a blackened steel entryway and enter a salon with gray walls, a Blue de Savoie marble floor, gray mist mirrors and Macassar ebony details. Women’s handbags and accessories and men’s luggage and small leather goods are displayed in glass and chrome vitrines and high-gloss lacquer accessory units. This leads to a shoe salon for women and men and a perfumery and eyewear salon with white marble floors and an ebony perfume table.

A large salon presents the TOM FORD Menswear collection of sportswear and suiting in an atmosphere of refined and comfortable masculinity. The salon is furnished with gray walls and gray wool carpeting, brown velvet sofas, beaver fur rugs, antique bronze lamp, Macassar ebony wood wardrobes and fixtures, and also features a sculpture by the American artist JoAnne Patterson. A fitting room with light gray, ultrasuede walls and antique bronze mirrors completes the sumptuous and refined effect.

The store’s final salon is dedicated to the TOM FORD Womenswear collection for day and evening. It is a glamorous feminine environment of light gray walls with mirror and chrome fixtures and an exquisite seating area featuring a silver silk sofa. Beautifully appointed fitting rooms complete the sumptuous experience of exclusivity.

About Tom Ford (www.tomford.com) Tom Ford gained international fame for his turnaround of the Gucci fashion house, where he was creative director for both Gucci and YSL from 1994 to 2004. Born in Austin, Texas, he moved to New York during his teens and graduated in architecture from New York’s Parsons The New School for Design. He moved to Milan to work for Gucci in 1990, initially as the company’s Womenswear Designer, then becoming its Design Director and Creative Director. At Gucci, he was responsible for the design of all product lines, from clothing to perfumes, and for the Group’s corporate image, advertising campaigns and store design. During the 10 years that Tom Ford was Creative Director for Gucci and the Gucci Group, sales rose from US$230 million to almost US$3 billion, making Gucci one of the largest and most profitable luxury brands in the world.

He left Gucci in 2004 following its sale to PPR, and in April 2005 announced the creation of the TOM FORD brand. He was joined in the venture by Domenico De Sole, who helmed Gucci during Tom Ford’s tenure there. They partnered with Marcolin Group to produce and distribute optical frames and sunglasses, and established an alliance with Estée Launder to create a fragrance and cosmetics collection. In 2007, Tom Ford’s first store opened in New York with the debut of his menswear and accessory collection. Three years later, his highly anticipated Womenswear collection followed. His stunning impact on the fashion world led Women’s Wear Daily to describe him as “fashion’s boldest, most audacious success story ever.”

A multi-talented individual, Tom Ford also embarked on filmmaking with the launch of Fade to Black, his film production company. His directorial debut “A Single Man“ was nominated for a Golden Lion award.

TOM FORD stores and shop-in-shops can be found in locations such as Beverly Hills, London, Milan, Tokyo, Las Vegas, Sydney, Dubai, Beirut, Zurich and Moscow.
