On Set: Tom Ford Optical
For a glossy September mailer, NM creative director Tim Flannery framed Tom Ford’s sophisticated spectacles in a scope of style scenarios. As you can see, Tom Ford’s optical collection clearly complements everything from sporty puffer jackets by Burberry Brit and borrowed-from-the-boys monochrome suits by Elie Tahari to glitzy cocktail dresses by David Meister and breath-taking ball gowns by ML Monique Lhuillier. Flannery gave us some insight into why the pairings work.
“The chunkier, borrowed-from-the-boys frames play off the feminine details – ruching, lace, fur. And something about the tone-on-tone-on-tone berry shades made the choice of tortoise easy.“ – Tim Flannery
“It would have been easy to put black frames with this look. Tortoise seemed a little unexpected and looks amazing with her hair!” – Tim Flannery
“A statement dress cried out for statement frames! I was dying to use these cat-eyes in black. So many great angles on this look – the cap sleeve, the wrap detail, and the draping. I was a little surprised – the stylist, hair and make-up artists were all dying to try these on, and even though they all had different face shapes, these glasses looked great on each of them!“ – Tim Flannery
