Tom Ford at Harrolds
In an inception-like dream within a dream within a dream scenario, Tom Ford's first Australian boutique recently opened its doors, bringing his oft-copied but never duplicated sense of style, sex and glamour to Sydney.
The iconic designer and Oscar nominated film director's entire lifestyle range is now housed within the walls of menswear Mecca Harrold's, one of the jewels in the retail crown of Pitt Street’s Westfield. Like the man himself, the Tom Ford boutique is a sexy and sleek affair, fitted out in polished ebony, marble and chrome.
Arguably one of the most luxurious – and for the majority, the most out of reach essential – comes in the form of annual visits by Ford's master tailor, Antonio Blazevic. For those lucky enough to be endowed with not only upwards of $6000 to drop on a suit, but also deemed worthy of the VIP title, Blazevic will personally fit made to measure suits and jackets from the collections.
So start saving your pennies and garnering your very important-ness for the next time Balzevic is in town. Or you can just settle for the already exquisite tailoring of a Tom Ford piece, off the rack.
