Sonic sunglasses from GILES for Cutler and Gross

These are Sonic by GILES for Cutler and Gross, the third time the British designer Giles Deacon has collaborated with C&G and they're a bit bloody good aren't they?

They come in Flesh with smoky lenses, "Grubby White" with brown lenses (above) , Red with bright red lenses and Black with electric blue lenses, as shown below. They're £350 and become available in December.

Meanwhile, Cutler and Gross this week launches its first "shop-in-shop" at the brilliant Eyeworks boutique in Kensington, London. More than 70 frames will be available from Cutler and Gross's spring/summer 2012 collection and vintage archive.

Eyeworks owner Brenda Mckernan says the London customer is looking for "something different to the standard commercial brands that everyone is so bored of seeing on every optician’s shelves". Well said Brenda - that's what we like!

  1. As in, "Sonic the Hedgehog?"  That might be a tough sell to the haute couture crowd...
