During the first consultation we take your facial measurements and work with you to develop the design. We typically create three silhouettes to prototype.
During the second consultation we review the prototypes and select your material, choosing from a wide range of zyl acetate and water buffalo horn.
Once we have confirmed the final design, we begin making your frames by hand – this is a meticulous and highly skilled process, and typically takes around four weeks.
Create a unique frame over a period of six to eight weeks with the help of our designers, materials and patterns.
Faceted and pearlescent
A bold pair of wonderful everyday spectacles with a geometric outer rim in an gemstone like acetate.
Curved to infinity
For this elegant frame, our workshop created a wrap around lug using a custom three-pinned hinge complete in a wood grain acetate.
A true small round
Our take on a classic pair of reading spectacles, with a distinctively arched bridge and elongated lugs.
A profile view
Our first pair of spectacles with built-in side shields using multi-layered, laminated acetate.
Raising eyebrows and standards
This Lady of spectacles is a refined cat eye shape, made from a marmalade turtleshell acetate and with our signature rivet plaques. Tailor-made for the woman whom they now adorn.
FOR ONE EYE ONLY
A one sided affair
An experimental (half) frame made in genuine buffalo horn, creating an undisrupted line from bridge end to temple tip.
A vivid revival
A smooth shape in a kick of colour, this rounded lens frame is complete with a classic style bridge for the perfect balance of old and new.
A satisfyingly chunky frame, with straight paddle temples in our slate acetate. A Brutalist frame if there ever was such a thing.
A classic in horn
Our Belgrove has been elevated to a new existence. Cut from a marbled slab of genuine buffalo horn, complete with double dot plaques for an understated finish.
A narrower fit
This fine frame made out of a streaked teak acetate, has been finished with lugs so slender, we've used our precious NFW (Narrow Facial Width) barrel hinge to accommodate it's diminutive width.
3D PRINTED BRIDGE
We created what we believe may be the world’s first 3D printed metal bridge. And what a pleasure it is to meet you, future. Designed by our dear friend and long term collaborator Charles Duffy, the bridge was 3D printed out of stainless steel to submillimetre precision. It was then polished by hand on the front, and left with the original 3D printed surface on the rear, before being mechanically fixed to the handmade acetate frontpiece using four rivets. A thing of beauty, we hope you agree.
This enormous fellow is almost 160mm wide, and constructed from 8mm thick vintage acetate. He features a saddle bridge, paddle temples with scored tips, and a double dot pinned ‘NFW’ hinge. A true one-off, and quite the beast.
A unique pair of oversized sunglasses, with a flat front and even flatter brow, completed with a low base flash mirror lens.
A SIXTIES REMAKE
Our remake of a classic frame from 1966, worn by Twiggy and shot by Ronald Traeger.
FOR DESIGNER MIRJA PITKÄÄR
We created this unique frame for Mirja Pitkäärt, a designer who studied at the Estonian Academy of Arts and the London College of Fashion. Mirja’s design eschews symmetry to challenge the traditional notions of beauty. As well as the asymmetric browline, we incorporated contrasting ‘lugs’, one rounded and one angular.
BESPOKE READING SPECTACLES
FOR TOM DIXON
Statement spectacles for designer Tom Dixon: an angled lens shape, flat bridge, and oversized ‘earjoy’ temples, made by hand in a ‘Quartz’ crystal acetate using custom Cubitts pins and wirecore.
