The new Cutler and Gross Spring Summer 2014 “English Garden Party” collection is inspired by classic British outdoor pursuits. The collection debuts brand new shapes and colors that draw on glamorous femininity in contrast to relaxed, effortless frames for the modern gentleman.

The colors of the season, are those from nature. Ranging from warm and earthy tortoiseshell or Olive Tweed, to the sweet crystal honey in the new cat-eye 1112 sunglass — which comes to life with a playful bug pattern, in a color-way fitting named “Bug on Granny Chic”.

Notable features throughout include an opulent blend of the finest Italian acetates, metal, and luxurious hand-stitched Italian leather. Needless to say, as always with Cutler and Gross, the materials and craftsmanship are the finest you will find. Checkout the new additions below…

The Cutler and Gross Fall Winter 2012/2013 ‘The Golden Trail’ collection in now in stock.

This season Cutler and Gross takes us on an exotic journey through ‘The Golden Trail’ from India, via Turkey and Marrakesh. Using the star of Morocco as their guide, the ultimate symbol of richness, peace and beauty, they navigate across distant lands to discover hidden opulence.

Throughout the collection there is an adventurous sense of both shape and color. For women, frames recall the 1970’s, with oversized round and octagonal designs. For men, frames are thick and chunky and a twist on classic 60’s styles, with their wide temples and strong brow bars.

“Desert sunsets are reflected in the Mellow Yellow acetate and in the gentle graduated hues of paprika red, cinnamon brown and deep blue.  Sunkissed whites and Gold rolled onto tortoiseshell warm the senses while the gentle colours fig, honey and cumin whet the appetite.”

As always each piece is flawlessly executed using the absolute finest Italian acetate, materials, and craftsmanship you will find throughout the land, whether distant or not.   We are proud to present to you ‘The Golden Trail’.

Maison Martin Margiela X Cutler and Gross 2012

Maison Martin Margiela sunglasses 2012

Maison Martin Margiela 2012 sunglass collection is now available.

After a very successful collaboration last year, French fashion label Maison Martin Margiela once again teams up with luxury eyewear maker Cutler and Gross for a full collection of sunglasses for 2012. The collection fuses the very best of two worlds; Maison Martin Margiela brings their signature expertise for experimental deconstructionist design, while the highly esteemed Cutler and Gross sees it to fruition with impeccable attention detail, materials, and workmanship.

The new range takes powerful past inspirations and themes and re-invents them through Margiela’s discerning perspective.

The main themes include:

‘Cable Temple’ – Our favorite of the season, the ‘Cable Temple’ uses a temple design whose origin can be traced back to the 1800’s.  The Italian acetate frame front is paired with German made stainless steel cable temples which wrap around the wearer’s ears for a secure and comfortable fit.  Also rare for an acetate frame they feature nose pads which help provide a better fit on a wider variety of noses.  Available in three colors: classic Black,  a rich Dark Turtle, as well as a very unique transparent “Champagne”.

‘Replica France’ – For the first time, Maison Martin Margiela has adapted its ‘Replica’ line to include sunglasses.  ‘Replica France’ is based on French motoring sunglasses of the 1970s; it is a semi-rounded design with a unique embossed front outline and tapered sides. Available in Black and Champagne.

‘Rimless’ –  Light weight, minimalist, yet completely distinct and memorable.  The Rimless is a style which plays on the illusion that the lenses are free from form and not surrounded by a frame. The very slim arms are made from stainless steel.  Available as the ‘Rimless Pilot’ style as well as the bold and oversized ‘Rimless Round’.

Cutler And Gross Spring/Summer 2012 | Hong Kong Love Story

Cutler and Gross - Spring Summer 2012

Cutler and Gross Spring/Summer 2012 “A Hong Kong Love Story” is now in stock.

Each season Cutler and Gross whisk us away with an alluring passionate tale. Through a time, a place, a mood — an awe inspiring collection perfectly reveals itself.  The Spring Summer 2012 range entitled “Hong Kong Love Story” transports us to Hong Kong in the early 1960’s, with a romantic feeling of forbidden love.

cutler-and-gross-inspiration board
“He was a broken-hearted journalist, she a beautiful but world-weary young married secretary, neglected by her work-obsessed husband. The couple met by chance in Hong Kong, simply by walking past each other to their different apartments.
Cupid’s arrow aimed precisely at the two lost souls and they fell instantly in love. As time went by she became more fearless with her style and more beautiful and alluring by wearing stronger colours and patterned cheongsams. He also became more dapper and more protective towards her.”

With a touch of nostalgia Cutler and Gross introduces several one of a kind shapes of both sun and optical this season. Thoughts of Chinese engravings, the warm colors of sculpted wood, jasmine tea leaves, and the fragrance of mango and lychee give rise to stunning colors such as: “Rose Chinoise” a beautiful soft pink, vibrant “China Blue”, “Veneer”, and “Lychee”.  As always, the quality and craftsmanship of each frame is  remarkable and at the absolute highest possible standard.  From the materials to the sizing and proportions, each subtle detail is perfectly executed, such as the signature engraving pattern on the “1053″ model, or the filigree etched metal work and brow bar on their “1055″ aviator model, among our favorites.


Without further ado…

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.
