Tom Ford to release second book in November – WWD
Tom Ford will be releasing his second book, “Tom Ford 002”, in November. Published by Rizzoli New York, it features a preface by Anna Wintour, an introduction by Graydon Carter and a conversation with Bridget Foley.
Ford released his first book, “Tom Ford,” 17 years ago (Rizzoli, 2004), which explored his time as Gucci’s creative director. The second book is a visual compilation of Ford’s own brand, which he founded in 2005.
The 444-page book – measuring 10-3 / 4 x 14 inches – features images and personal commentary of Ford, 59, born in Austin, Texas. It chronicles his career after Gucci, the launch of the Tom Ford brand, the release of his two award-winning feature films “A Single Man” and “Nocturnal Animal”, both Oscar nominees, and guides the reader through expansion and the evolution of its eponymous brand, which encompasses cosmetics, eyewear and clothing for men and women.
Some of the celebrities featured in the book include Julianne Moore, Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Nicholas Hoult, Zendaya, Timothée Chalamet and Drake, all dressed in Ford models, as well as models such as Gigi Hadid, Joan Smalls, Mica Argañaraz and Jon Kortajarena, among others. The book highlights advertising campaigns by photographers Steven Klein, Inez & Vinoodh, Nick Knight and Mert & Marcus, as well as previously unseen footage.
“Tom Ford 002” is available for preorder. The book will retail for $ 135 on tomford.com and at international and domestic booksellers.
