Cutler and gross

cutler and Gross

Cutler and Gross is a very established eyewear brand, born in London in 1969 by two opticians, Mr Cutler and Mr Gross, this brand is dedicated to quality craftsmanship. Every frame is handcrafted in Italy with the finest acetate, a practice that has been perfected in their 55 years of operation. We love the look and feel of these frames, they offer a bolder, edgier look. They have also been worn by many notable names, such as Davie Bowie, Elton John, Julia Roberts and many more, which has truly established them as one of the pinnacle spectacle brands. 

What defines a cutler and gross frame?

It is not simply the unique designs or the statement details. It’s the time-honoured techniques carried out by optical architects who have spent decades honing their skills, requiring a discipline that few possess.The mastery of such virtuoso work has earned them the title of frame-making experts. From start to finish, each frame is guided by a series of specialist hands. Cutting, shaping, tumbling, polishing – the glasses come to light over the course of many months. The journey to perfection can’t be rushed.

The Archive: An Eyewear Odyssey

Cutler and Gross’s five-decade-deep archive is a testament to our inexhaustible craftsmanship and ingenuity. It spans the swinging sixties through nineties grunge to now, forming a unique source of British heritage and inspiration for current collections. Read 55 Years of Craft: The Origins to find out more.

Our atelier’s expertise is a means to bridge the past with the present. From Elton John’s iconic 70s frames to Julia Robert’s Notting Hill sunglasses and Bono’s wrap-arounds, Cutler and Gross glasses are written in the history books.

And this legacy continues today. Combining extraordinary design, exceptional craftsmanship and a pioneering vision, each collection looks confidently towards the future.
