Tom Ford to open first London stand alone store

Ford will open the doors to a Sloane Street store next year

Tom Ford has signed a 10-year lease to join Chanel, Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Fendi on London’s Sloane Street with his first stand alone UK shop.

Ford will take over the 8,000 square-foot property at 201-206 Sloane Street (the Harvey Nicks end), and pay £1.3 million/year in rent to the Cadogan estate, says yesterday’s Sunday Times.

The shop will house the Texan designer’s full collection, including his hugely popular menswear collection – which is currently only available at Selfridges.
