A fashion icon, provocative American designer Tom Ford brings us his highly anticipated second book, which takes readers through the illustrious trajectory of his billion-dollar luxury empire established in 2005.
Synonymous with high-octane glamour, opulent sexuality, and fearless fashion, Tom Ford is an iconic designer whose namesake label has devout followers across the globe, from Milan and New Delhi to Shanghai and New York. Seventeen years after his best-selling debut book Tom Ford (2004), which detailed his time as creative director for the Italian label Gucci, this second volume is a visual ode to Ford’s eponymous brand created in 2005 and encompasses cosmetics, eyewear, menswear, and his critically acclaimed womenswear line.The revered designer not only catapulted his brand to the highest echelons of the fashion world–receiving accolades from the Council of Fashion Designers of America and Time magazine’s Best Designer of the Year–but also commanded the attention of Hollywood by featuring loyal A-list fans such as Julianne Moore, Lauren Hutton, Pat Cleveland, and Nicholas Hoult in his runway shows and advertising campaigns. This gorgeous slipcased volume includes dazzling imagery of Ford’s clothing and accessories designs, fashion editorials featuring top models such as Gigi Hadid, Joan Smalls, Mica Argañaraz, and Jon Kortajarena, and his signature sexually-charged advertising campaigns by photographers such as Inez ‘Vinoodh, Nick Knight, Steven Meisel, and Mert & Marcus.This volume, printed with Forest Stewardship Council approved materials and edited by Ford personally, reflects his exceptional taste and unapologetic sensual aesthetic and is a true collector’s item for his devotees and connoisseurs of fashion, style, and design.

Each month, Artforum, presents the latest ideas in international visual arts, fashion, film and the performing arts. Artforum aims to make contemporary art accessible and understandable, and to give its readers a clear picture of the cultural landscape.
On the cover of Artforum’s October issue is an exuberant tessellation by Joyce Kozloff, one of the pioneers of Pattern and Decoration and a touchstone of Lynne Cooke’s formidable article on “the last of the strategically organized art movements of the twentieth century.” Cooke carefully takes stock of four celebrated museum exhibitions that have thrust P&D back into the spotlight after years of critical neglect. “The interrelated concepts of decoration, ornament, and pattern are anything but universal, monolithic, and fixed,” she argues, scrupulously attending to the gaps and schisms in received narratives.

Little People, Big Dreams
Little Kamala used to accompany her parents to civil rights marches in California, tied to her sister’s stroller so she wouldn’t get lost. From an early age, she dreamed of becoming a lawyer to help people in need. At university, Kamala felt like she could do anything and everything. She earned a law degree to make sure the most vulnerable were protected by justice. Kamala’s life was full of firsts, including becoming the first woman, Black woman, and South Asian American to be elected Vice President. As Kamala stated to little girls everywhere in her speech—she may be the first but she won’t be the last. This powerful book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the politician’s life.
