Tom Ford London flagship coming in 2013


Tom Ford has signed a 10 year lease for approximately 5,900 sq ft of retail space for his first opening in the UK. The store will be housed on Sloane Street {201-206} in Knightsbridge and, more than likely, feature his 2013 women's ready-to-wear {shown at London Fashion Week} and men's collections, which until now was only exclusively available at Selfridges.

“The luxury retail sector is performing incredibly well against a challenging economic climate,” said Ed Humbert, senior director at CBRE London, who handled the transaction. “The demand for commercial space in the industry is soaring, especially on Sloane Street and the arrival of Tom Ford will reinforce this trend,”  Humbert added.

The first U.S. Tom Ford outlet will open mid-July in the Woodbury Common shopping center in upstate New York. Ford has a flagship on Madison Avenue, N.Y. and boutiques in Dubai, Tokyo, Osaka, Seoul, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Ford also has a shop dedicated to men’s wear on the rue Francois 1er in Paris, that opened last March.
