    I seriously, seriously hope that this doesn't start a trend like that early 00s trend of rappers flocking to Gucci and name dropping it in every song. :doh:

    Tom's face is looking a bit too pulled. Having no wrinkles at all on your face is a bit odd. He's still sexy but just a bit weird looking now.

    I wonder what the back story was for such a union... like the exact moment by moment panorama... I was sure that they were doing their best to avoid each other furiously.

    i really can't see tom ford holding a grudge like that. i mean, he hired all of these people that now creatively direct these houses. also, i feel like his tenure at both houses stood as one of the most exciting epochs in our fashion lifetimes.

    Oh I can see him holding that grudge. He did not want to be photographed for a pic with Lynn Wyatt or someone just two years ago because she was wearing a recent Gucci suit (that white one from FW 2007 I think it was). And when his mens frag was released, he set up the scheduling so cunningly that it juxtaposed with either the Gucci mens show and/or their Gucci by Gucci book release. Giannini had said that she hadn't received an invitation to his release, and she did not invite him to the Gucci book launch. It was really bitter words uttered and that book does mention Ford only once at the end, and really downplays his work at the company by diluting it with vintage stuff and the feeble Giannini images.

    Time heals things, and I am sure he is friendly with John Ray, but everyone knows both Pilati and whatsherface do not really like him, as Ford doesn't really like Marc Jacobs: his once-upon-a-time boss.

    I am sure this article was already posted, but I just love these photos. Klein is a genius, and this was Tom at his most beautiful and arrogant. So it is befitting to be reminded of these photos and article.

    I think the set looks a little cumbersome, and slightly vintage-y. The skins and the unique color are all gorgeous, but something is just too ordinary about them. Wouldn't mind seeing the pieces in person though.

    that issue of w is one of the rare ones i've kept. i don't even like him or his work *that* much but i think the photos correspond to his personality so perfectly that i feel the need to have them at hand's reach. :king:
