Sloane Street has a new resident that is bound to up the stylish avenue to new supreme stylistic heights. The London street already calls such famous designers as Alberta Ferreti, Chanel, Gucci and Louis Vuitton its own – and Tom Ford the legend is set to join those ranks.
Ford is famous for reviving Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent as major couture powerhouses before going on to form his own label aptly named Tom Ford. He has also garnered acclaim as a movie director for his pic A Single Man which starred Oscar winner Colin Firth.
This will be Ford’s second store, his first store was opened in Paris earlier this year.
Hugh Seaborn, Chief Executive at The Cadogan Estate, remarked about Ford’s new store: “We are delighted to have secured such a big name fashion brand as the anchor to 201-206 Sloane Street.
“With Tom Ford’s arrival – and Alberta Ferretti also opening a flagship store, it enhances the ‘super luxury’ offering of the development and seals its reputation as a world-class fashion destination.”
The store is a smart move as it physically aligns Ford to his targeted demographic. It is a great first step in a career that is bound to change the face of menswear through sheer chic innovation.
