Yvan Optical Frames in Dark Tortoiseshell
Order now to receive by 4 Dec - 10 Dec
Curry & Paxton’s a brand that can legitimately claim to be trendsetting – they were one of the first eyewear brands in the UK, and have been in the industry since 1876. Today, their sunglasses and glasses are modern and well-made, using the techniques they’ve honed over their 140 years in business. The Yvan Optical Frames in Dark Tortoiseshell are a pair of tortoiseshell acetate eye glasses with a vintage-inspired look. They’re crafted with care from natural cellulose acetate – a material derived from natural resources and known for its strength, glossiness and natural feel. Look familiar? They're the same style worn by Michael Caine in The Italian Job. And The Curry & Paxton three-dot logo symbolises their style and quality.
Picture this: it’s 1876, the age of Queen Victoria and innovation – including the ophthalmic instruments that formed the first products of historic brand Curry & Paxton. And that’s not even the most impressive part of their history. They were the first brand to work successfully on both the dispensing and manufacturing side of the industry, and by the 20th century were successfully hand-making 1000s of pairs of glasses and sunglasses for London and the UK. They’re one of few brands that can actually claim to be trendsetters, and their styles today are just as fashion-forward – counting HRH the Duke of Windsor and Michael Caine as customers, and paying homage to their history.
