Do you like this story?
I’d like to take this time to introduce one of my favourite new brands and one you should keep your eye on for 2009, Cutler and Gross.
I’d heard about them before but hadn’t had the chance to really look into them until lately, when people kept asking me about the style of Dominic Greene in the latest Bond film, Quantum of Solace. Someone identified them as Cutler and Gross 0425 Brown Stripe. So I contacted them to see what is going to be available for 2009 and I was blown away by what they sent me. They scream hand crafted vintage and I need to get myself a pair of them. Adding to their appeal, they now have a deal with Carl Zeiss, so all of the lenses are now made by the famous German company. The following are just a few select models. There are literally tons of great models and I’ll get to more later on.
Style - 0915 Brass Chrome
Style - 0886 Black Dark Turtle
Style - 0880 Black Dark Turtle
The range is inspired by Grace Kelly and her relationship and marriage with Prince Rainer, when the two spent time on the water, exploring the Mediterranean and being glamorous. This feeling is reflected not only in the vintage styling of the sunglasses, but also the colors and the shapes. You can really feel that the concept came together even though each pair has its own feel.
Check the Cutler and Gross website for more information and locations.
