Tom Ford Moves Forward on Women's Collection... Chanel's Barn Raising...

Tom Ford women’s wear collection is moving closer to reality.

A SINGLE WOMAN?: It looks like a Tom Ford women’s wear collection is moving closer to reality. According to markets sources in Europe, Ford has quietly begun recruiting designers, including accessories specialists, for the forthcoming launch. Last year Ford signaled he would reenter women’s “very soon,” but has been mum on dates and specifics. On Thursday, a spokeswoman for the designer had no comment.

Meanwhile, though he’s not up for any Oscars, himself, Ford still has reason to look forward to the Academy Awards on Sunday — and not just because his “A Single Man” star Colin Firth is a Best Actor nominee. Ford will dress hosts Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin for the telecast. The funnymen will be wearing Tom Ford black, single-breasted tuxedos with grosgrain peak lapels, white pique front shirts, as well as black grosgrain cummerbunds and bow ties. And Baldwin apparently has a costume change, as WWD has learned he’ll also be wearing a navy blue, single-breasted tuxedo with a grosgrain peak lapel at some point during the ceremony.
