Even with blazing Tom Ford posters adorning several BA walls, spokesperson won’t confirm new store.
Is Tom Ford opening a Buckhead Atlanta boutique?
There are at least six adjacent walls in the mixed-use development covered with the Tom Ford logo and it’s still unclear whether or not the American fashion designer and film director will open a boutique there.
“We have no further details to provide at this time,” Cliff Fleiser, a company spokesperson told What Now Atlanta (WNA) in an email Thursday when asked to comment on the floor-to-ceiling logos.
Not even Buckhead Atlanta would comment on the signage.
Why the secrecy?
On the one hand, the space has been festooned with Tom Ford posters from top to bottom, but it’s unfathomable to think Ford would allow a shopping center to plaster his name where a store won’t be opening.
Even Atlanta Magazine took the “logoed barricade” to mean “his imminent arrival seemed to be announced.”
No known permits have been filed under the name of the menswear retailer in Buckhead (which doesn’t hold much weight because it’s not unusual for a company to cloak its identity in official city documents.)
So, what do you think? Will Buckhead Atlanta soon be home to a Tom Ford Boutique? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
