Tom Ford opened his first European store in Milan this week. Lucky duck Suzy Menkes got a private tour of the new Ford palace with Tommy Boy himself. It’s five floors, 12,000 square feet and drenched in Fordian impeccability. Ford explains he wants the store to feel like a house. He adds a “layer of specialty” with the exclusive sale of fragrance “Italian Cyprus” in the perfumery. The store also offers every kind of leather good imaginable, cuff links, jewelry, riding boots, luggage, canes, walking sticks, and fur hats. Why bestow such Fordian fabulousness on Milan? Ford thinks Italy is one of those places where men dress really well.
