Have You Driven a Ford

Designer Tom Ford, best-known for his re-invention of the sleek ’70s jet-set aesthetic at Gucci and YSL, has touched down at ILORI sunglass boutique with a pair of luxurious limited-edition aviator shades.

Tom Ford’s Italian-crafted Pavlos and Carlos styles are modern interpretations of the iconic aviator, with a twist. Pavlos features high-quality metals fused with precious santos rosewood or ebony and polished plated gold with a gradient lens. The metal-rimmed Carlos frames a solid brown or green lens, evoking an essence of ’50s glamour.

Packaged in handmade leather cases, each limited-edition frame will be individually numbered to certify authenticity.
