Few things perk me up on a Monday morning, and checking my email is definitely not one of them. Amid the flurry of press releases squawking about another another reality telly “star” wearing some random designer (really, you’d think that it’d cheapen your brand, non?) was the news that the designer that I’ve wanted to slip it to since I was a teenager in short unflattering trousers is opening his first London flagship on Sloane Street in 2013.
US designer Tom Ford will open his first flagship store in the UK on Sloane Street, reinforcing the street’s reputation as the leading luxury retail destination in the capital.
Tom Ford‘s new flagship store is going to be situated on the Cadogan Estate’s new 201-206 Sloane Street development. Luxury brands already on the street include Chanel, Gucci and Louis Vuitton, while Alberta Ferretti recently acquired a 6,000 sq ft unit within 201-206 Sloane Street for a new concept store.
Obviously it’s not like I can afford anything (or probably fit into) anything from Mr Ford but isn’t this exciting?? Myself and Jam and go skulk outside in the dream that Tom Ford will kick dust in our eyes. Oh to have the dust from Tom Ford’s heels kicked into my eyes while I get manhandled away by his security…
