Cool and quirky is the name of the game at this long-established Knightsbridge outlet, known for its innovative hand-built frames. A new collection is introduced twice a year: spring/summer and autumn/winter with seasonal capsule collections in between.
Cutler & Gross is renowned for its clever use of colour in its optical frames, while sunglasses run the gamut from leather-trimmed aviators to oversized tortoiseshell numbers. What characterises all of the frames is the high quality. The iconic Vintage eyewear range, meanwhile, draws rock and film stars to the fabulous vintage shop in Marylebone, which has period gems, from 1930s Bausch & Lomb through to 1980s Cazal. All frames are handcrafted in 42 steps in the eponymous factory in Italy.
Services offered in this Knightsbridge branch include eye examinations, contact lens fitting, personal styling, frame adjustments and repairs, and bespoke frames.
Considered bastions of iconic eyewear, designs have been worn David Hockney, Grace Jones, Sir Elton John and Madonna, and influential artists and style leaders from Rihanna, Erykah Badu to Kate Moss and Manolo Blahnik.

Cutler and Gross has always been a cool, cult brand. I love the discreet nature of this shop. It's like a hidden gem that provides respite from the tacky high streets and brands trying to be something they are not. The Green brings you back to London in the 60s. My Cutler and Gross frames have always been a part of who I am. I don't just buy glasses to be trendy, I love the feeling of a quality, handmade frame that gets better with age. The people that work in the shop understand this, and they spend the right (not annoying) amount of time with you to make sure you get it right
such a pity. beautiful designs, no where near the high quality i used to be such a fan of. and the 'service' oh dear goodness. whatever happened?! its abysmal. looks like they now choose their staff on looks not ability; dollybirds who want to work in fashion, and give them less than no optical training. manners and a smile would be a good start. or a different opticians. i gave up after my 3rd visit to try and buy a new pair, and won't be going back. they don't even have the cool vintage products from cazal etc anymore, just a shop full of their older styles, often remakes not actual vintage.
