Tom Ford Black Orchid

December 4, 2006 - Admirers of Tom Ford have something to celebrate this holiday season - his exodus from the fashion stage proved short lived. Ford has previously announced plans to launch a men's line, to be debuted in New York in Spring 2007, and now has set up his own company, Tom Ford International. Tom Mendenhall, a former Gucci merchandising director, has been hired as Operating Officer and will focus on retail development, distribution and managing daily operations, according to a statement.

Last week Ford launched Tom Ford Black Orchid, his first fragrance separate from his collaboration with Estée Lauder. The black bottle carries a 23-carat gold-plate plaque on the front and is also being marketed in a limited edition black crystal Lalique version. The fragrance will be followed by hair drops, an extensive "private" blend of fragrances, a men's grooming line and, by 2008, a make-up line including 96 products.
