VIDEO: Tom Ford may put Yves Saint-Laurent hate mail in his biography
Tom Ford gives CNN an insightful interview on his relationship with Yves Saint-Laurent, his previous career as creative director at Gucci, and the things that frightened him about starting a fashion label with his own name.
Ford claims Saint-Laurent’s hostility towards his style is well documented in personal handwritten letters sent to him by the late designer. “I have letters that he wrote to me about it, you know: ‘In 13 minutes on the runway you have destroyed 40 years of my career.’”
“I am really happy I have them — they are written in his own hand. When I’m 85, maybe I’ll put them in a book — if anyone cares,” Ford said. Should Tom Ford ever release an autobiography after retiring from the industry, those letters are something we’ll be looking forward to.
