Cutler and Gross Eyewear | SS 2011, The Mermaid and the Officer

Cutler and Gross Sunglasses

Eyegoodies is proud to welcome to the site one of our all time favorite brands, Cutler and Gross.  Supply Limited.

Cutler and Gross was founded in 1969 by Graham Cutler and Tony Gross who opened their optical boutique in Knightsbridge London stocking handmade bespoke frames. Since their inception, their one of a kind luxury eyewear was an instant success and an integral part in forever shaping the landscape of the industry.  Other brands often try to imitate and take inspiration from Cutler and Gross, but there is nothing quite like the real thing; A difference which can not only be seen, but a quality which can be felt.

Cutler and Gross is not about being overly complicated.  You will find no obnoxious branding or logo’s on the outside of their frames, yet they capture your eye with a “quiet elegance, and a firm and graceful classicism”.  The brand adheres to the same principles today as it has for over four decades, and for which it is globally renowned: unsurpassed quality and timeless aesthetics.

While most designer frames are mass produced using flimsy injection molding techniques, the manufacturing process that Cutler and Gross employs is both expensive and time consuming; there are no short-cuts taken and no detail over looked.

Cutler and Gross Eyeglasses

“The Cutler and Gross frames are cut from sheets of acetate and then the rough cut goes into a polishing process where we first tumble the frame fronts and temples in a wood barrel for 3-4 days with resin chips and olive oil. The tumbling smoothes the surface of the frames and prepares for the hand polishing, without removing too much of the sharpness of the frame. Every hole is hand drilled and the pins and hinges are screwed by hand, no glue is used in the frame building process that takes 3 weeks.”

This manufacturing process has become a lost art today.  A pair of Cutler and Gross sunglasses or eyeglasses is made to last a lifetime, “The real McCoy” not just another designer decoy.

Tom Ford Daphne Sunglasses | Summer 2011

tom-ford-daphne-sunglasses

Not for the timid or faint of heart, but if your a confident woman who’s looking for a new pair of bold and over top sunglasses, the just released “Daphne” model from Tom Ford might be exactly what you need.

The Tom Ford TF 219 Daphne is a sexy, very over-sized  cat eye pair of  sunglasses done with a modern flare.  These wrap around shades contour the wearer’s face providing full coverage and feature a “criss-cross” at the bridge (much like Tom Ford’s all popular Whitney model).  It is also the piece worn by the stunning model Abbey Lee Kershaw, in the latest Tom Ford Spring/Summer 2011 Eyewear campaign.
