Tom Ford comes to the radio

Written by Daniel P Dykes

He's mastered the cut of cloth and the cut of a film, now Tom Ford has turned his hand to the radio.

Designer and filmmaker Tom Ford is revealing his vision and inspiration in an exclusive monthly series on Sirius XM Radio.

The Sirius XM Radio month-long series titled "Iconography" will make its debut with a one-hour, exclusive interview with Tom Ford. The monthly series honors the life, career and impact of iconic personalities.

Iconography: Tom Ford launches March 1 and culminates with a one-hour interview with Mr. Ford on March 19 on Sirius XM's 24/7 LGBT station OutQ.

Sirius XM's OutQ radio host, Frank DeCaro, sat down with Tom Ford for an in-depth interview in which Mr. Ford shares his vision, inspiration and perspective on his professional and personal lives.

Mr. Ford also discusses the launch and expansion of his private Tom Ford label, his time at Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent and the critically-acclaimed film he directed "A Single Man."

Future plans for the high-end designer are also discussed during the radio interview.

Encore presentations of the interview will air March 19, 20, 26 and 27.

Tom Ford Neroli Portofino: sexed up scent

Written by Daniel P Dykes

Updated: a third image from the campaign has been released. You can see it at the bottom of this article.

Were you ever to slide open the antique wood draw of my revivalist-Tudor bedside table you would know that it plays host to a rather excessive quantity of scents from Tom Ford's unisex Private Blend range. It also plays host to a great many other scents; some are also from Tom Ford others from the likes of Hermes and Ralph Lauren. It transpires, however, that the draw, packed rather tightly as it is, may need some room made in it. For Tom Ford has a new scent for us all: Neroli Portofino.

The reason for my excess quantity of scents has many aspects: I believe that scents help set one's mood, particular scents are better suited to daywear or the evening, while other scents are better suited to particular social occasions then others. Most definitively, however, scents have seasons. Certainly a season doesn't define a scent, but certain scents will always be suited to autumn and winter, and others to spring and summer. And it's those latter two seasons that Tom Ford's newest scent Neroli Portofino belongs.

Neroli Portofino, Tom Ford's reinvention of a classic eau de cologne, instantly evokes the seductive essence of the Italian coast. Inspired by and infused with this exhilarating scent, the Neroli Portofino collection of bath and body products revitalizes and nourishes the skin with nature-rich ingredients such as olive fruit oil, grape seed oil and date seed extract that are indigenous to the Mediterranean.

Available as body oil, a bath scrub, a body moisturiser, a shower gel, and a bath soap as well as a eau de parfum, it's not just the scent itself that is a reinvention of a classic. Despite his recent rebranding towards being Mr. Tom Ford, the purest of gentlemen, Ford's latest campaign leans towards those old. Not old Italian coast, but old Tom Ford. The old Tom Ford who's name didn't make a mark just for his quality offerings, but also for the overt sexuality, often replete with nudity, that he was lavished throughout his ad campaigns.

Tom Ford Bath Soap

Tom Ford Bath Soap Tom Ford Bath SoapIt’s almost never that we’d feature a bar of soap here. But when the bar of soap in question is from style master Tom Ford, well, attention must be paid. You’re probably just fine with the three-pack of Zest you have now, but it’s perfectly normal to wonder how you might smell and how you might feel after a long, hot shower with the Tom Ford designer bar soap.Wrapped in turquoise tissue with a gold label, the soap is a hard-milled type, embossed with the Tom Ford logo and cleanses the skin with a creamy lather.Details of the soap reveals that it enriches the skin with olive fruit oil, grapeseed oil and date seed extract, ingredients indigenous to the Mediterranean, to leave skin feeling smooth and refreshed.That does sound quite lovely. One wash, and I’m sure the feeling is like you’re standing in an expensive robe on a balcony overlooking the French Riviera, with an evening of expensive, hedonistic pleasure ahead.Or something like that.At £25 ($35 bucks) for a 155 gram bar, the Tom Ford soap is expensive. But if you find yourself shopping for Tom Ford soap it’s safe to assume you know you’re going to be paying top dollar. The soap is part of a larger line of Tom Ford grooming products, from body scrubs and after shave to colognes and shower gel. [via finer cut]
