‘… the book is the perfect symbol of everything Ford has achieved … even more collectable and powerful than anything that ever came down a runway’ – The Financial Times
‘Read it and weep’ – The Evening Standard
Foreword by Anna Wintour
Tom Ford is the design genius who took the helm at Gucci for ten years.
This lavish volume is a complete catalogue of his design work for both Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent. It chronicles not only Ford’s clothing and accessories designs for both houses, but also explores Ford’s grand vision for the complete design of a brand, including architecture, store design and advertising.
In the past decade, he transformed Gucci into one of the sexiest fashion brands in the world. His designs have increased sales at Gucci tenfold and have helped build that brand into the luxury goods conglomerate that it is today.
Tom Ford features more than 200 photographs by Richard Avedon, Mario Testino, Steven Meisel, Helmut Newton, Herb Ritts, Terry Richardson, Craig McDean, Todd Eberle, and numerous other photographers including many previously unpublished images.
Published to coincide with his departure from Gucci, this book has been created with Ford’s full co-operation and every page reflects his exceptional taste. It is Ford’s testament to a career of singular moments reinventing the boundaries of style and sensuality.
