By Tom Herrington, these handmade pieces are a byword for the ultimate in classic sartorial elegance. The finish is impeccable as one would expect for a frame designed in England and produced in the Jura region, France by a genuine craftsman in the finest organic grade Italian acetate.
The debut collection features 10 superb designs; five for the girls and five for the chaps, in bespoke colours with luxurious 5 barrelled pin joints and fittings, expect punk-tortoiseshells and antique French lace alongside classic blacks and clarets. Inspired by the greatest frames of the last century and brought hurtling into the present.
The strong styles have been ergonomically adjusted to suit todays vital statistics. Tom has a strong understanding of the personal requirements a spectacle/ sunglass wearer considers when he/she undertakes a purchase, having owned and run his own luxury eyewear boutique in Hastings' Old Town for the past three years - The Optical Lounge.
Having worked with some of leading, more original designers in luxury eyewear [Jason Kirk – Kirk Originals, Shane Baum – Leisure Society/ Paul Frank], Tom Herrington has concentrated for two years on developing and bringing to the market a truly inspired and stylish collection.
Conscientiously balancing well-proportioned models against bold lines and an indulgent splattering of Great British eccentricity.
From conception to their arrival, this concise collection of glasses has at its core value the simple ethics of classic styling and faultless quality. These frames are built to last, and looking this good you will want them to.
