Cutler & Gross 9101 Limited Edition
Founded in 1969, British luxury eyewear brand Cutler and Gross combines 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 style and fashion circles like verbal quicksilver. Considered bastions of iconic eyewear, Cutler and Gross designs continue to grace many of the most recognisable faces in the worlds of art, design, music and film.
The 9101 celebrates the 40th Anniversary of one of Tony Gross’ favourite frames – the 0101. In 1982 Cutler and Gross commissioned their first factory produced frame, choosing an Atelier in the Italian Dolomites, where their frames are still made to this day. Tony wore the archived 0101 frame throughout the 80s during his frequent trips to New York and London’s elite clubs.
The frames are crafted with gold-plated hardware encased in translucent crystal acetate and integrated photochromatic Zeiss lenses, which darken when exposed to sunlight. The exclusive 9101 is limited to just 101 units globally and uniquely numbered.
