Tom Ford came. He went. He has risen. Since his departure from the Gucci Group in April 2004 he has been out of commission, so to speak. Even though his Tom Ford Brand was created in April 2005, its only of late, since the launch of his eyewear and now his perfume, that he has been on the end of everyone's tongue. I think Tom Ford is bringing "Tom Ford" back! The perfume, the website launch (www.tomford.com), the menswear deal with Zegna and the announcement of a freestanding store in 2007. It's safe to say that he has returned and is really ready to rock the fashion world. We all knew he would come back. That kind of talent is just too good to waste away on a ranch. Not that there is anything wrong with being on a ranch. I think its great that he has something in his life to counterbalance this crazy, crazy industry. I think, at the end of the day, its all about a healthy balance. I am looking forward to his re-contributions to the industry.
