TOM FORD OPENS FIRST MIAMI FLAGSHIP

SEPTEMBER 2015 - TOM FORD ANNOUNCES THE OPENING OF THE MIAMI TOM FORD FLAGSHIP STORE. LOCATED AT 103 NE 39TH STREET IN THE MIAMI DESIGN DISTRICT, IT WILL BE THE SIXTH DIRECTLY OPERATED TOM FORD FLAGSHIP IN THE UNITED STATES AFTER NEW YORK, LAS VEGAS, BEVERLY HILLS, CHICAGO AND DALLAS.

THE STORE’S LOCATION IN A VANGUARD ARCHITECTURAL BUILDING EPITOMIZES THE DYNAMIC SPIRIT OF THE MIAMI DESIGN DISTRICT, WITH ITS CUTTING–EDGE CONVERGENCE OF ART, DESIGN AND FASHION. DESIGNED BY ARCHITECTS ARANDA/LASCH, THE BUILDING IS NOTABLE FOR ITS “PLEATED” SURFACE OF GEOMETRIC, GLASS-FIBER-REINFORCED-CONCRETE PANELS AND ANGULAR, RECESSED STOREFRONTS. INSIDE, VISITORS DISCOVER THE ENVIRONMENT OF SOFT MODERNISM AND TIMELESS LUXURY THAT IS THE SIGNATURE OF TOM FORD STORES WORLDWIDE.

SAYS TOM FORD, “THE MIAMI DESIGN DISTRICT OFFERS A TREMENDOUSLY EXCITING HOME FOR TOM FORD. ARCHITECTURALLY, IT HAS BECOME ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING AND VIBRANT PLACES IN THE WORLD AND I AM THRILLED TO OPEN MY SIXTH US STORE THERE.”

ENTERING THROUGH A LIMESTONE-EFFECT STOREFRONT AND A VESTIBULE FLOORED WITH BLACK GRANITE, THE VISITOR FIRST EXPERIENCES THE WOMEN’S PERFUMERY AND EYEWEAR SALON, A DAZZLING WHITE ROOM WITH CHROME ACCENTS, WHITE-AND GREY MARBLE FLOORING AND A FREESTANDING, BLACK GRANITE CUBE TABLE FOR PRODUCT DISPLAY. AS IF MOVING THROUGH AN ELEGANT PERSONAL RESIDENCE, THE VISITOR EXITS THE PERFUMERY THROUGH A MACASSAR EBONY DOORWAY AND ENTERS THE WOMEN’S ACCESSORIES SALON WITH WALLS OF OFF-WHITE ULTRA SUEDE AND GREY MIST MIRROR, AND DISPLAY UNITS OF MACASSAR EBONY AND CHROME. THIS LEADS INTO THE SPACIOUS SALON DEDICATED TO WOMEN’S READY TO WEAR AND SHOES, WHERE AN ATMOSPHERE OF FEMININE ELEGANCE IS CREATED WITH A PALETTE OF LIGHT GREYS, MISTED MIRROR, POLISHED CHROME ACCENTS AND TOUCHES OF BLACK GRANITE AND EBONY. A STRIKING GLASS AND CHROME FIREPLACE BACKED BY MARBLE DISTINGUISHES THE SALON AND ADDS A BOLD DESIGN FEATURE. CLIENTS ARE INVITED TO RELAX IN A SEATING AREA FURNISHED WITH A SILVER-BLUE WOOL SOFA AND A COFFEE TABLE MADE OF CRUSHED STAINLESS STEEL. LUXURIOUS PRIVATE FITTING ROOMS ARE OUTFITTED WITH SLIVER-BLUE DRAPERY.

A BLACK MIRRORED ELEVATOR TAKES VISITORS TO THE SECOND FLOOR AND OPENS ONTO THE MEN’S ACCESSORIES SALON, A DARKLY MASCULINE ROOM FEATURING MACASSAR EBONY WALLS AND ANTIQUE BRONZE MIRROR. THIS LEADS INTO THE WHITE-MARBLE-AND-CHROME ENVIRONMENT OF THE MEN’S FRAGRANCE AND EYEWEAR SALON. THE NEXT TWO SALONS, DEVOTED TO MEN’S SHOES AND MEN’S SPORTSWEAR, CONTINUE THE LUXURIOUS MONOCHROME AESTHETIC. FINALLY, THE VISITOR ARRIVES IN THE MEN’S SUITING SALON, A ROOM THAT EXUDES AN AURA OF REFINED MASCULINITY WITH THE SIGNATURE TOM FORD PALETTE OF GREYS TOUCHED WITH BLACK AND BROWN. A CHROME DESK WITH SUEDE PANELS AND DRAWER FRONTS IDENTIFIES THE MADE TO MEASURE SUITING SERVICE AREA. CLIENTS ARE INVITED TO ENJOY A SUMPTUOUS LIVING ROOM AREA FURNISHED WITH A BROWN VELVET SOFA AND A BLACK MIRROR COFFEE TABLE THAT IS LIT FROM WITHIN. MEN’S FITTING ROOMS OUTFITTED WITH GREY FLANNEL DRAPERY, ANTIQUE BRONZE AND POLISHED CHROME MIRRORS, AND A LEATHER-AND-EBONY WOOD BENCH ENHANCES THE EXPERIENCE FURTHER.
