Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Although this is its first local store, British eyewear brand Cutler and Gross is no stranger to New York fashion: The company has collaborated with designers such as Erdem, Alberta Ferretti and Maison Martin Margiela on specs for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. The minimalist space functions as both a retail store and a showroom, selling handcrafted unisex models ($455–$930) and rare vintage frames ($455–$970). Each pair—including tortoiseshell glasses ($575), masculine camo-print styles ($500), flat-top round looks ($540) and acetate frames with vintage pins ($500)—is designed in London and made in Italy. Sunglasses ($500–$1,000) cost a pretty penny, but you’ll stand out in a crowd donning pearl acetate cat-eyes ($540) and 1970s-inspired sunnies ($550). For something really unique, ask about bespoke designs ($950–$7,000), which take three to four months to complete.
