Tom Ford could be the next designer to present a collection with Hennes & Mauritz. Rumors have surfaced the web about a possible future collaboration between the designer and the fashion retail store.
Business Week reports:
Hennes & Mauritz AB, the world’s second-largest clothing retailer, would be keen to follow up its Versace collection with a fashion range designed by Gucci’s former creative director Tom Ford.
Ford is “a very interesting name,” H&M’s creative adviser Margareta van den Bosch said by telephone from Stockholm when asked about the possibility of a collaboration with the 50-year- old designer. “I can say, I wouldn’t mind.”
The Stockholm-based retailer, whose Versace for H&M line goes on sale this week, may work with Ford, website FrenchTribune.com has previously reported. Van den Bosch said there has been no contact with the designer, while a spokeswoman for Tom Ford declined to comment.
The Versace for H&M line will be H&M’s eighth with a designer since it started selling clothing by Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld at a fraction of the usual cost in November 2004. The collections can sell out immediately and H&M never has difficulty selling them, said Van den Bosch.
