The best known designer of spectacles and sunglasses in the world.

Even if you haven’t heard of the brand, chances are you have seen their frames. Their signature sunglasses have adorned nearly every major celebrity and style icon from the 50’s onward. From Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn to Sophia Loren , he has styled them all.  A true pioneer, their sunglasses were the first to appear in Vogue, and they were the first to work with fashion houses to create one-off pieces for the catwalks.

This short film shows our roots. Made for Oliver Goldsmith, this film perfectly captures the true essence of 'handmade'. It features one of the last British factories and craftsmen here in England where our bespoke frames are mastered. Ben Grimsey -- our head craftsman, is a rare breed!
