Tom Ford sunglasses are the business. Always oversized and generally rocking a retro vibe they are the celebrity’s shade of choice. Universally loved by Hollywood’s leading ladies (and men), Jennifer Lopez, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have all been snapped modelling Tom Ford shades in recent months.
Nicholas Hoult has become the poster boy for Tom Ford sunglasses, since starring in Ford’s Directorial Debut, ‘A Leading Man’. Alongside his female sidekick Carolyn Murphy, his face is regularly splashed across the fashion glossies and billboards. It’s certainly been an interesting career trajectory since his geeky turn in Nicholas Parson’s ‘About a boy’!
Tom Ford is primarily known for his menswear and accessories but this year he shocked the fashion world by throwing a surprise ‘Cocktail Party’ which was in fact designed to reveal his first womenswear collection in 6 years. Top fashion folk were invited to the ‘Cocktail Party’ which was held in New York and had all the hallmarks of a Fifties couture show. Ford asked women that inspired him to model his spring/summer ‘11 collection, among them were; Beyonce Knowles, Julianne Moore, Daphne Guinness, Lauren Hutton and Amber Valetta. Ford commented “I want to concentrate on real women and the real customer. It’s all about individuality, individual style, different body types, women who have their own style.” One official photographer was present to avoid press leaks and its rumoured photos of the show will not be released until January next year!
Such secrecy has created even more of a buzz about Tom Ford. If this story is anything to go by then every woman in the fashion-know is going to have Tom Ford on her radar! As is always the case designer clothes are way beyond our budget, but thankfully with a little scrimping and saving, designer sunglasses are not! With this year and next, seemingly obsessed with all things vintage, Tom Ford sunglasses are the perfect label to hit the retro mark. There are so many different styles and most of them are beautifully oversized which was such a common trait in the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s.
Thankfully the sun hasn’t disappeared just yet and there’s always the need for the perfect pair of shades to take you through the winter. In order to be bang on the money for next year’s big trends we’d suggest investing in a pair of Tom Ford sunglasses and you won’t be disappointed!

Lucky for you, here at Shade Station, we have an incredible array of sunglasses by a wide range of designer brands as we recognise that sunglasses are important not only for functional purposes, but also as a way of defining and conveying your unique personal style, adding character to your look and injecting a polished or creative edge to your ensemble.

Internationally successful designers are few and far between and even rarer, are designers that venture into filmmaking. Tom Ford is one such designer. At the helm of Gucci from the mid Nineties until 2004, Ford was credited with turning the ailing fashion house into the monster it is today. After parting ways with Gucci, Ford set up his own company ‘Tom Ford’ and began his business designing fabulous sunglasses and eyewear.
Today Ford is one of the worlds most successful and revered designers, however his creative genius has found another outlet in the form of film directing. Ford’s directing debut, ‘A Single Man’, has earnt its lead character, Colin Firth, a ‘Best Actor’ nomination in this year’s Oscars (The 82nd Academy Awards)! Could this be a new career direction for Mr Ford? It seems Tom Ford has the Midas touch. Already popular with the Hollywood A-list, for his beautifully designed clothes and glamorous sunglasses, they’ll all be clamouring for a role in his next movie!
As well as catching Ford’s debut movie at the cinema this spring, get in on a piece of the action with his popular range of Tom Ford sunglasses. Worn by the likes of Angelina Jolie (who was responsible for the popularity of the ‘Whitney’ crossover style sunglasses), J-Lo and Sienna Miller, Tom Ford sunglasses are some of the most fashionable sunglasses worn by celebrities. Ford’s collection of sunglasses is thoughtful and extensive, with styles to suit all face shapes and tastes. Aviator, vintage and oversized frames are all found in the range and anyone looking to enter the spring season looking stylish and on trend should look to Mr Ford for inspiration.

If you are a lover of luxury (and who isn’t!) then Dior sunglasses should be on top of your accessories list. The Christian Dior brand is exceptionally highly regarded for its exquisite design, superior quality and ability to capture the essence of timeless luxury within its products.
The man behind the name, Christian Dior was born in 1905, in a small town called Grenville in France. When he was slightly older Dior was forced to move for financial reasons to the Soviet Union following the death of his mother and brother. A friend gave him somewhere to stay and it was here that Dior practiced and developed his passion for sketching and began drawing ideas for dresses and hats.
Christian Dior started to sell his sketches, and struck lucky when a famous actress loved them so much that she purchased every sketch. This allowed the artist to move back to Paris where he gained further professional experience in fashion design. In 1946 he started his own collection and Dior’s first show was 90 outfits worn by six girls. Christian Dior wanted to bring back femininity and beauty and make women feel womanly and elegant once more. Of course, women all around the world were favouring this new style and fashion but some others were not so keen and felt it was inappropriate and a little too glamorous. Despite some governments throughout the world forbidding the line branding it outrageous and wasteful, Christian Dior went on to become one of the most iconic designers in the world and even since his death in 1957, the brand name has continued to dominate the fashion industry.
Full of drama, each pair of Dior sunglasses comes with a name to reflect the design ; the 60’s 1 sunglasses for example are typically 60’s with a vibrant panther print and oversized and the Very Dior sunglasses are indeed, very much the essence of the brand with exquisite oversized lenses with a figure of eight style gold frame and white arms.
If you are looking for a pair of sunglasses with a bit more edge, the Diorrisima sunglasses in a wraparound shape have a great fit and will stay on no matter the activity. These sunglasses are a great way of injecting instant glamour with the most casual of outfits with their sleek jet black frames and abstract patterned detailing at the side of the lenses.
For a pair of the standard classic oversized sunglasses with slightly square shaped frames, the Miss Dior 1 sunglasses are perfect. A hit among the most glamorous of celebrities, these sunglasses are simple with clean subtle lines and the combination of black, white, red and bronze colouring injects a contemporary edge to a classic style. These shades would look beautiful with a simple and elegant dress and are the epitome of Parisian chic.
Christian Dior clothing and accessories are largely associated with women, but within the selection of Dior sunglasses, there is also something for the men! The Dior Homme sunglasses have a classic and sophisticated style with simple slim black frames and graduated grey lenses. With a masculine on-the-go attitude and a hint of sporty appeal, these sunglasses are the ideal way of injecting some style into your man!
Christian Dior defines the essence of vintage glamour that instantly conjures up images of Hollywood beach side glamour and beauty. With a huge array of flattering and exquisite styles, the Dior sunglasses collection is the perfect way to add something truly chic and beautiful into your wardrobe. The addition of a fabulous pair of sunglasses can make a striking difference to your look and image and after all, Dior himself wanted women to feel feminine and beautiful and this is exactly what the collection captures.

For those of you who are fans of the reality TV show The City which follows the life of fashion industry worker and designer Whitney Port, who first found fame during The Hills, you will most likely recognise model Adam Senn who is the on/off boyfriend of Whitney’s also model friend Allie.
Adam is most renowend for his appearance in the iconic luxury brand Gucci’s advertising campaign and now has his eye set on Hollywood actress and notorious party girl Lindsay Lohan. The two met whilst Lindsay was in New York for Fashion Week and they apparently hit it off and have been spotted with one another a number of times since. The According to an insider, the two first met while LiLo was in New York for Fashion Week.
Adam was catapulted into the model spotlight, following his appearance in the rather controversial Gucci advertising campaign in 2003, which was shot by legendary photographer Mario Testino and is one of the main fashion campaigns that people always remember!
Guccio Gucci founded the House of Gucci in Florence in 1906 and his primary skill and creative talent was in the design and manufacturing of leather goods. He started out selling leather bags to horsemen in the 1920’s and progressed to deigning luxury luggage as his clients tended to move from equine transportation to horseless carriages. In 1938 Guccio Gucci opened their first retail shop on the Via Condotti in Rome and the brand became very successful and associated with Hollywood stars such as Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly following further store openings in Beverly Hills, Paris and Tokyo. It was in 1947 that the iconic leather handbag with a bamboo handle was launched which is still an incredibly popular Gucci product today. In the 1990’s, Tom Ford was responsible for escalating the brand back to its rightful sought after and exclusive status following it being sold in the 1980’s. Ford extended the product lines and since Frida Giannini’s arrival as Creative Director of Gucci in 2006, the brand range now includes a spectacularly stylish collection of leather accessories, perfumes, colognes, cosmetics, shoes and Gucci sunglasses. Gucci today is still one of the all time classic brands, whose products maintain that highly desired and exclusive appeal. It is often thought that if you own a piece of Gucci clothing or a Gucci accessory that certainly makes a statement about your style and status.
The latest news from Gucci is the announcement that in 2010 Gucci and luxury auction company Christie’s are collaborating to launch the ‘Gucci Collector: Presented by Christie’s’ which is the first online location for the appraisal of Gucci products whereby Gucci collectors can upload their vintage Gucci products and a team of Christie’s and Gucci experts will assess the value of the item. The owner will then have the option to sell the item back to Gucci or to list it at a future Christie’s auction.
The collection of Gucci sunglasses are the perfect representation of the luxurious essence of the brand – with stunningly dramatic frames and the use of bold yet elegant colours and patterns and added aesthetic features such as arm hinge buckle and Gucci logo detailing, a pair of these sunglasses will definitely assert your exquisite and refined taste in fashion. The perfect way to add that elite and much desired Gucci style to your look.
