Meticulous detailing hallmark of TOM FORD eyewear frames

TOM FORD presents a collection of twenty-nine eyewear frames for men and women. Offering a complete, and diverse, spectrum of optical and sunglass frames, the collection bears all the hallmarks of the TOM FORD house: its sophisticated and progressive designs are crafted at the highest level using luxurious materials, and then finished with meticulous detailing.

“Eyewear is one of the few accessories that men can use to express their style, and it's one of the most powerful accessories that women can use in highlighting or transforming theirs, so it should bechosen with tremendous consideration and concern for quality—the message eyewear communicates is instantaneous and memorable,” says Ford.

The new collection offers distinctly contemporary frames that are grounded in the authenticity of classic eyewear shapes. The 'Brow line' frame, an icon of '50s style, is refined and simplified into two new shapes for men: a compact, square shape (FT5026) or a wider, round one (FT5027), each combining elegant, skinny top-frames with minimal keyhole bridges.

In addition to traditional black, these are offered in light and dark Havana acetate, opaline yellow and striped brown. A women's frame takes this shape to even narrower proportions and is cast in flattering colors such as striped plum, striped green, and ivory (FT5035).

Additional optical frames include an ultra-minimal distillation of this style: a frameless version using precious natural materials, such as Assam or ebony wood and horn, handcrafted into bridges and earpieces that hold the lenses in place (FT 5080/5081).

Women's optical frames this season take a bold and directional leap. Modeled on TOM FORD sunglass styles from previous collections, they include an exaggerated, '50s Cat-eye style enhanced with curving lines and extra-wide temples, similar to the 'Kelly' sunglass frame (FT5096). The 'Bianca' sunglass style, with its oversized, square frame rounded at the edges, is the basis for the new FT5097 optical frame, which is offered in rich colorways like brown/yellow mélange and is crafted to feel extra-light on the face.

Additional optical styles for women conjure bold and flirtatious '70s glamour (FT5095) or extreme modern sleekness, with surprising design details such as lenses that are cut away from the frame (FT5059).

Sunglasses for men this season develop the modernized '50s theme. The 'Carlo' (FT0098) updates a vintage design with wider and more rounded lines and a substantial, saddle-shaped bridge that features a single, skinny metal bar. Additional sunglass styles include masks that wrap the face in acetate or metallic frames (FT0099 and FT0101); sophisticated Aviator styles in square or rounded shapes with a double-bar at the bridge (FT0102 and FT0103); and a new version of a vintage Horn-rim shape from the '20s and '30s (FT0104). Lenses run a spectrum of shades from dark grey and grey-green to brown and mirrored options.
