Book Overview

Tom Ford has become one of fashion's great icons. He transformed Gucci from a moribund accessories label into one of the sexiest fashion brands in the world. His designs have increased sales at Gucci tenfold and have helped build the Gucci brand into the luxury goods conglomerate that it is today. Ford brought a hard-edged style synonymous with 21st century glamour to his clothes, and Hollywood sat up and took note. This book is a complete catalogue of Ford's design work for both Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent from 1994 to 2004. It chronicles not only Ford's clothing and accessories designs for both houses, but also explores Ford's grand vision for the complete design of a brand, including architecture, store design, and advertising. Tom Ford features more than 200 photographs by Richard Avedon, Mario Testino, Steven Meisel, Helmut Newton, Herb Ritts, Terry Richardson, Craig McDean, Todd Eberle, and numerous other photographers including many previously unpublished images. Published to coincide with his departure from Gucci, this book has been created with Ford's full cooperation and every page reflects his exceptional taste. It is Ford's testament to a career of singular moments reinventing the boundaries of style and sensuality in clothing.

   Third time is not a charm. Great book with a flaw.
I wanted this book for a long time. It is always picture perfect. I ordered the statement piece one day. When I received the book, the cover was marked up from the box, which was disappointing. If you keep it in the outer box, it looks good. Amazon immediately sent a replacement. Same thing. They were great again and sent another. There is still amarked up. The distributor should place something between the box and the cover. The black is bleeding off. I was disappointed with 3 books. It is an amazing book but if you are very particular about details then this will bother you.
   For The Fashion Enthusiast.
As someone with an affinity for collecting fashion and fashion adjacent coffee table books, this was a no- brainer. Tom Ford's career has spanned decades, and his unapologetic approach to fashion and culture might shock some, but for others it is a welcomed differentiation to the norm. A piece of literature that is well- curated. Did you know who the subject of this book was? Some of Ford's print ads have been banned and removed from periodicals during his tenure at Gucci, YSL, and his namesake brand. I am certain that your children have seen worse online, and that there are only about 7 pages in the entire book that could be deemed inappropriate. Don't like it, invest your money somewhere else.
   Seller Customer srv was not considerate
Lots of nudity is not for a coffee table display. The item went on sale in 3 days. If I returned for a lower price, I would be charged a 20% non- defective Restocking fee. Then removed the item.
   Nudity: there needs to be a disclaimer so that people know!
When I ordered this coffee table book, I didn't realize that there would be full nudity of both men and women. The book is easy to read because it is on the coffee table. I discovered this recently and didn't look through it before. I understand art but there needs to be a warning for people who want this to be a decorative piece. There is no way that I am displaying this in my home with small children. I would send it back if I could, but I missed the return window.
   Inappropriate photos.
The outside of the book is gorgeous. I was shocked when I opened the book. I was very sad. I opened the first page and saw a photo of a woman with shaved pubic hair. That wasn't the only inappropriate photo, let's just say. That isn't fashion! I'm talking about the coffee table book. Someone should have posted a review like this before I bought it. I never would have bought it if I had seen it.
   Gorgeous Table Top/Shelf Book
A high quality book for any modern home coffee table or book shelf. It's so large it's an art piece. The book has high quality prints and is a show stopping piece of art.
   Must Have
After buying all the other fashion house coffee table books, I finally decided to buy this one. It's a staple to add to your collection.
