Tom Ford to open first store in Germany

November 28, 2011 – Tom Ford, in partnership with Marion Heinrich, also owner of the new Marion Heinrich Store, opens his first retail store in Munich. The 1400 square foot, two-story franchised flagship store is located at Falckenbergstrasse 9, 80539 Munich adjacent to Maximilianstrasse.
The retail site will ecompass the womenswear collection including clothing, footwear, accessories, eyewear, fragrance and beauty collection under the TOM FORD label.

One enters the store to arrive in a world of feminine luxury. Tom Ford and long-time collaborator Bill Sofield conceived the light-filled and streamlined design to harmonize with the elegant, historic surroundings. The use of polished chrome and blue de Savoie marble that one sees upon entering at the Perfumery is continued throughout the entire first floor which houses eyewear and handbags. On the second floor, softer silver and grey upholstery makes the customer feel as if she is in a luxurious sitting room.

Tom Ford, President and Chief Executive Office, commented, “I couldn’t be happier to be opening our women’s store in Munich. I have known Marion for years and couldn’t ask for a better partner for our first TOM FORD store in Germany. Our goal with this store is to address an extremely discerning luxury customer who demands the highest quality product and service.”
Domenico De Sole, Chairman of TOM FORD said, “We have a longstanding relationship
with Marion and her fashion group and I couldn’t be happier to be opening a store with them. They clearly understand the luxury business and our opening in Munich is the next step to developing our business further in Germany.”

Congrats to opening your 58th store, Tom & a warm welcome to Germany! Nice to have you here, at last.

Since the creation of the Tom Ford brand in 2005 it launched sunglasses and the Tom Ford Beauty brand (in alliance with Esteé Lauder), which has produced six Signature fragrances and a full cosmetics line. Tom is designing his own menswear since 2007 and womenswear since 2010. He also directed the movie 'A Single Man'.

What do you think was Tom`s biggest accomplishment / most important career step since leaving Gucci and YSL in 2003?
