The contemporary version of a pair of signature Cutler & Gross eyeglasses worn by Willi Smith, subject of the exhibition Willi Smith: Street Couture.
Fine rimmed, perfect round-eye sunglass frames that are deliberately undersized but with wide lugs to ensure a universal fit.
Founded in 1969, British luxury eyewear brand Cutler and Gross combine the finest Italian craftsmanship with irrefutably cool style. Since its establishment in fashion’s halcyon days, the brand’s signature creativity has been applied to sunglasses and optical frames with their trademark numbered designs and absence of an ostentatious logo.
For decades, Graham Cutler and Tony Gross’s frames relied, in part, upon their reputation being dripped and whispered within the style and fashion circles like verbal quicksilver. Considered bastions of iconic eyewear, Cutler and Gross designs continue to grace many of the most recognizable faces in the worlds of art, design, music, film, and fashion.
