Tom Ford Vicky
Tom Ford’s eyewear is in a league of its own. His unique styling is instantly recognisable and has set trends in eyewear that are still in high demand. But because these pieces are so distinctive, there really is only one way to get that Tom Ford look; that’s by wearing Tom Ford.
The Vicky is another beautiful example of Tom Ford’s large, luxuriant and ladies frames. This graceful frame is crafted of acetate for a rich colour, glossy finish and warm handle and comfort in wear. There is that lovely fluidity to the Vicky characteristic of Tom Ford’s most popular ladies sunshades. This is achieved by the tubular sculpting of many of the frames such as the Whitney, Jennifer and the Raquel. This technique also contributes to the definitely contemporary feel to these pieces. Furthermore there is a softness to all these curves which is wonderfully flattering and feminine. The frame sweeps around the large lenses and layers loops and criss crosses at the bridge with a real movement like a cord. This styling makes these sunshades have a closer harmony with the wardrobe. It is as much about what is not there as what is there and Tom Ford is something of a minimalist. Only the very essential elements are included to create the desired effect. This minimalism makes Tom Ford eyewear more striking, memorable and contemporary.
Another design flourish championed by Tom Ford is the use of cutaways. This gives even further lightness and elegance to the frame. The frame leaves off from the lens at the bridge and at the temple. The Vicky bears a brow bar creating even more openness to this effect. The brow bar via the aviator also serves to accentuate the brow and thus the eye line for a dramatic assertive look. Finally finishing it all off is the flash of a metal band at either temple adding to the modern minimal feel of the frame. The Tom Ford signature is imbedded in metal at the grip. A single lens is also etched with the brands prestigious signature further marking the authenticity of your unique sunglasses.
