Whoever claims multi-tasking is a difficult feat is obviously not familiar with fashion impresario Tom Ford. Ford, who left his creative director post at Gucci and YSL in 2004, has since created cosmetics with Estee Lauder, eyewear with Marcolin, and a successful men’s collection in partnership with Ermenegildo Zegna all under his moniker; additionally, he also directed the Oscar-nominated film A Single Man under his production company, Fade to Black.
He has recently revealed, to much fanfare, that he will be launching his much-anticipated womenswear collection possibly in time for Spring 2011, either in Milan or New York. Industry gossip has him assembling a team that includes Caroline Tixier from Givenchy and Pablo Coppola from Alexander McQueen; Ford and his representatives have declined to comment.
In the mean time, Ford fans can satiate themselves with the designer’s newest creations come June 2010 when he debuts his 12-color lipstick collection called Private Blend Lip Color, which will be available at Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and Bergdorf Goodman.
