All Horned Up for Tom Ford

Spare a thought for water buffalo. Not only must they migrate in crowded, smelly herds and nervously dog-paddle across croc-infested rivers, now they have to worry about becoming an accessory for rich humans. Tom Ford has made horn from the grazing beasts the centerpiece of his new men’s and women’s collection of eyewear, shaved down and burnished into 1950s-inspired frames branded at the temples with an upper-case T. The bovine’s only consolation is that its bony donation will always look dazzling, provided the wearer uses the cleansing cream and chamois cloth included in the Bakelite box set.

$2,950 in Tom Ford boutiques and select luxury department stores beginning in April.
