Add a little edge and style to the man in your life’s wardrobe with this season’s must-have men’s shoe – these unique and luxurious sneakers from Tom Ford are available in high and low-tops with seven different colors in leather and five in velvet.
The handcrafted shoe is an emblem of luxury menswear. Each sneaker in the collection is made in Italian workshops over a one week process of stitching, polishing, and resting the leather. Artisans from second and third generation cobbler families produce eighty percent of the object by hand. The highest grade European leather, taken from the middle and most prized layer of the hide, is tanned with vegetable oils, waxes, and minerals and tinted with vegetable dyes to render leather that is supple, shiny, and strong. The shoemaker lightly irons and hammers the upper onto the last, which softens and shrinks the skin. It is then left for ten days, so that the shoe takes its shape slowly and deliberately. The sneakers are then hand polished in a process that takes 3 days to achieve a deep patina that is particularly noticeable on the toe. This authentic and time-tested process ensures a fit, comfort level, and longevity far superior to conventional ready-to-wear footwear.
The velvet version is soft, smooth and has an added depth of colour when it catches the light. Both versions are complimented by a white rubber sole and finished with the same attention to detail and handwork as all TOM FORD products.

A host of blazing orange accents make a new black limited edition RM 011 Automatic Flyback Chronograph from Richard Mille impossible to ignore. The highly visible RM 011 Orange Storm is a torrid combination of high-tech materials and vibrant details.
Black TZP ceramic, which is extremely resistant to scratches while not being brittle, is blasted until it has a matte finish and then used to form the front and back bezels of the Orange Storm’s tripartite case. Its center caseband is crafted from NTPT® (North Thin Ply Technology) carbon. Already used in the fields of aerospace technology, the manufacture of racing sales, and Formula 1 racecar design, NTPT carbon is incredibly strong and light, and composed of multiple layers of parallel filaments obtained by dividing carbon fibers. These thin layers are impregnated with resin and then woven on a special machine that modifies the direction of the weft, creating a distinctive visual effect that is reminiscent of precious wood. In addition to the center caseband, the Orange Storm’s crown and pushers are also made from NTPT carbon.
With its skeletonized movement as the backdrop, the Orange Storm’s bright orange hour indicators, counters, hands and flange are instantly legible. The timepiece is presented on an orange rubber strap with a titanium buckle.
Some of the RM 011’s main features, which include major technical innovations, are its skeletonized automatic winding movement with adjustable rotor geometry; 60-minute countdown timer; 12-hour totalizer; annual calendar; and oversize date and month.

City lights: a new vision of the urban experience, a place of power and possibility for women. This season, Raf Simons, Artistic Director of Christian Dior, celebrates the strength and power of the city silhouette together with the women who wear it. Here, unafraid to combine femininity with masculinity, the traditions of men’s tailoring with the Dior vision of the ‘femme fleur,’ Simons presents a synthesis of the real and imagined: an abstracted cityscape with a new breed of female worker that plays the presiding role within it.
“This season I wanted to propose a new woman,” says Raf Simons. “A woman with power and energy in a very definite way. I wanted to pursue powerful tailoring, to offer another reality, another function. This season is less about the leisure of the garden and more about the pace of the city. I am attracted to the reality of the urban world and environment, not just to the leisured world of ‘the moment’ – that world of the event or the party. This Dior woman inhabits both.”
“I wanted to approach the idea of the city as an abstraction, it is how I perceive the world of the city in this collection,” says Raf Simons. “It is an idea of the romantic and the real, a world of possibilities. At the same time I wanted to present women with freedom and possibilities in the way they dress too.”
