Cutler & Gross SS14 collection



Cutler & Gross is a firm favourite at our Knutsford branch. We love the style, the quality and the quirkiness of this quintessentially British brand.

The SS14 collection this year is amazing, colourful and fun…. Say hello to the ‘English garden party collection.”


“Inspired by classic British outdoor pursuits and the warm natural hues of berries, dried flowers and feathers the collection debuts brand new shapes that draw on glamorous femininity in contrast to our relaxed, effortless gentleman’s frames.



The new Octagonal 1111 reinvents the classic acetate round, adding a twist of Cutler and Gross decorative milling around both lenses. The sleek, ultra-fine men’s 1117 and the chunky 1120 are new Cutler and Gross staple pieces for the season, both available in our earthy new Dark Turtle acetate.



Summer also means more exciting new colours, such as electric Crystallised Violet and warm, flattering Olive. Our premium collection comprises a brilliant new array of mirror flash lenses, creating fabulous shine appeal when paired with exclusive new Glitter Dark Turtle and Mosaic acetates. Finally, we demonstrate for the first time our new 3D laminated print technique, with a playful bug-inspired pattern on a granny chic frame: the new cat eye 1112, set to inject life into many seasons to come.”


As usual at Clare & Illingworth we only have one of each design (to ensure you don’t see your frame at the next garden party you attend) so make sure you visit the Knutsford team ASAP to try both optical and sunglasses. We featured this range at Gusto’s summer fashion show and had lots of great comments.
