From the runway at New York Fashion Week to Australian shores, David Jones footwear and accessories buyer Lisa Yeung talks to JONES about the highly anticipated arrival of TOM FORD.
Inspired by the glamour of 90s LA (think black and gold satin, sequined pink basketball jerseys, low-rider cargo pants with sky-high stilettos), TOM FORD’s Spring 2022 collection brings the razzle-dazzle. The collection, which closed New York Fashion Week in September last year, offers a combination of classic designs, like the Medium Croc Embossed Chain Shoulder Bag, and punchier pieces – neon pink and emerald green frame the brand’s iconic golden logo on a slew of ‘it’ accessories.
Footwear and accessories buyer Lisa Yeung has snapped up the best of the runway, bringing the world-renowned brand to devoted David Jones customers, online and instore at Elizabeth St and Bourke St. The launch sees David Jones’ repertoire of luxury labels continue to grow, as TOM FORD sits alongside coveted collections from Saint Laurent and Loewe.
Lisa talks to JONES about the launch of TOM FORD at David Jones and why the New York-based brand’s pieces will be your best investment yet.
JONES: Welcoming TOM FORD’s line of footwear and accessories to David Jones is so exciting. What do you love about the brand and this collection?
Lisa Yeung: TOM FORD is a luxury brand known for its feminine and sexy style. The brand represents a strong and confident woman who is sophisticated and glamorous. We are excited to welcome the iconic and much-loved Tom Ford styles to David Jones, including the TOM FORD Padlock Pointy Naked Sandal 105, which is a must-have for any shoe collection.
What makes these pieces investment-worthy?
TOM FORD creates pieces that are relevant to trends of today but offer a timelessness. The quality of materials used, as well as the craftsmanship and attention to detail, makes these pieces a worthy investment.
TOM FORD spoke about this collection as “glamour that’s still chic but more straightforward and somehow casual.” How should we be wearing and styling these new arrivals?
The latest arrivals from TOM FORD can be dressed up for an event or pared-back with denim for a relaxed yet polished look. It’s very New York. And it’s very now.
“There is a 90’s vibe in the air. At least for me there is. Perhaps it is the simplicity of the clothes of that era. A great shirt in an incredible colour with a cool pair of pants and kick ass shoes.”
