When Fashion Meets Art

Ford recently introduced his 2010 Autumn/Winter eyewear campaign to the fashion world by doing an adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock’s movie Birds. This campaign was shot by Ford himself, which at some point has his female model breastfeeding a crow. Meanwhile in the other photo British actor Nicholas Hoult is puckering up to one. As bizarre and outlandish as these photographs may seem, Ford still surpasses the bar when it comes to elegance.

Earlier this year the designer turned director launched his Spring/Summer eyewear collection using his movie “A Single Man” as inspiration. Ford used one of the lead actors in the movie Nicholas Hoult and model Carolyn Murphy as his muses for the shoot. He was the photographer yet again, capturing the artistic essence of his movie with his camera shots. Tom Ford is definitely a Renaissance man in his own right. His expertise shines through everything that he does. It is apparent his architectural background and years of experience as creative director for two of the top fashion houses in the world Gucci and YSL, played a major role when designing his masterpieces.
