Starting in the early’90s, Tom Ford spent a decade working tirelessly to bring a new level of glamour and success to Yves Saint Laurent and then Gucci; that time was caught in Ford’s first eponymous 416 – page keepsake, Tom Ford, published in 2004. As a follow up to that tome, Ford announced today that he will releasing a second harcover, this time focusing on his post – Gucci years. Tom Ford 002 will cover everything that’s happened in the designer’s life since he left the Milan – based brand, including launching his namesake label, building up his beauty and fragrance lines, his decision to become a director, and receiving Oscar nods.
Now nearing his 60th birthday and with almost 40 years in fashion under his bespoke belt, Ford enlisted Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour to pen the 002’s forwards, as well as Air Mail founder and former Vanity Fair head Graydon Carter, to write the introduction. Friends in high places, eh?
