Bespoke eyewear comes to Cutler and Gross’ North American flagship store in Toronto
Taking up space in the recently opened 84 Yorkville North American flagship location, British eyewear brand Cutler and Gross has recently introduced a VIP room, aptly titled the Museum (think plush black chairs, clean pale floors and hidden custom drawers filled to the brim with frames), housing their new bespoke services. Starting at $950 per pair, by appointment only, customers can design specs from more than 600 archived frames dating from 1969 to present day. Change up colour and style, or add personal touches such as heirloom jewels, or other antique materials, as well as a personalized inscription on the inside arm near the temple, for a truly custom pair of reading- or sunglasses.
Cutler and Gross is known for its high quality frames and designer collaborations, having previously partnered with designers Maison Martin Margiela, Giles Deacon and Canadian expats Thomas Tait and Erdem Moralioglu, who used antique lace from one of his mother’s old frocks inside his limited edition frames.
Delivery of your new frames will take 6-12 weeks. To make an appointment call, (416) 966-5149, or stop by the store at 84 Yorkville Ave, in Toronto.
