Tom Ford ate four Dunkin’ Donuts for breakfast yesterday. That confession opens the designer’s new interview with Women’s Wear Daily, in the wake of some big changes for his brand. (He claims the breakfast is a daily thing for him, by the way — apparently he’s switched his brand loyalty from Hostess Donettes.)
Ford, who has been based in London for many years, is moving back to the United States — specifically Los Angeles, where he’ll be working out of the building that housed Hedi Slimane’s design studio and living in Betsy Bloomingdale’s former mansion. The designer has moved around on the fashion calendar, showing in London, New York, and L.A. in the past couple of years, but he’s now committing to New York Fashion Week for women’s and will continue to show menswear in Milan.
You might think the election results would have steered Ford, who has been outspoken about his feelings toward Trump, away from a return to his home country. (The ill feeling is mutual.) That is not the case. “Oddly, it made me want to come back even more,” he told WWD.
We have a tremendous number of people in this country who feel disenfranchised and clearly we are not relating to or speaking to them. I am at my core American, and it made me want to come back. It didn’t make me want to run away.
