Tom Ford at Selfridges

My initial amazement upon stepping foot on the marble floors of Tom Ford’s newly opened store rapidly grew to such astronomical levels that it quickly became an understatement. Located on the first floor of Oxford Street’s illustrious Selfridges, it’s a safe bet that Ford’s eponymous label have set a huge standard for shop-in-shop experiences that will not have gone unnoticed in the fashion industry.

Beautifully opulent in appearance and enriched with sophistication that has become the hallmark of the Texan designer, the classy store is inspired by his vision of the ‘House of Tom Ford’, giving off a look more akin to a suite at a five-star establishment rather than your typical high-end menswear boutique. Featuring grey tinted mirrors and brass hardware decorated throughout the space and a prominent macassar wood table, the store is reflective of the brand’s trademark of masculine luxury at its simplest, and is another landmark in the storied career of Tom Ford, who made his name by revitalising Gucci as a force during the late Nineties before creating his own label in 2005 and receiving critical acclaim four years later for his cinematic directorial debut, A Single Man.
