“Mr. Ford Returns,” announced a spread in Vogue’s December 2010 issue. The feature offered a first look at Tom Ford’s highly anticipated spring 2011 collection, which marked the designer’s runway comeback after he parted ways with Kering (then Gucci Group) in 2004. The story starred the likes of Joan Smalls, Karen Elson, and Amber Valletta, all donning looks from his women’s ready-to-wear debut.
Today, just over a dozen years later, Tom Ford is saying goodbye to his eponymous label with the launch of one final campaign that sees him take a literal, and fittingly cinematic, trip down memory lane. In a full circle moment, the trio of high-gloss videos shot by Steven Klein include—you guessed it—Smalls, Elson, and Valletta, together with other familiar faces from his original cast.
