Tom Ford will debut his menswear collection in London next year

The designer will present his clothing as part of the London Collections: Men schedule, which takes place in the capital from January 7 to January 9.

Tom says London is an ideal location to present his new creations because they are inspired by UK dress.

“I am very pleased to be showing my menswear collection in London next January. London has a vibrancy that is inspiring and much of what I create for men takes its inspiration from traditional British menswear,” Tom told British newspaper The Telegraph. “My clothes are designed with an international customer in mind, and London is one of the most international cities on the planet.”

Next year also marks the opening of Tom Ford’s first flagship store in the capital, located on the desirable Sloane Square street address.

This follows the designer’s increasingly strong links with all things British, as it was recently revealed he is exclusively designing the wardrobe Daniel Craig will wear in the new James Bond film Skyfall.
