Design Excellence

Based just outside of London, our design team are skilfully involved throughout the product development process, from initial sketch to choosing the individual colours on a finished frame.
We work with leading manufacturers from Europe to the Far East, sourcing only the highest level of workmanship to guarantee product that delivers quality and uncompromising attention to detail.
Our designers oversee all sampling to ensure our high standards of fit and comfort are met. "Sourcing inspiration from the catwalks to the high street, highlighting the trends and amazing diversity of London's spectacle wearers; I try to bring some of that style and
fashion to the frames I design." Tom Mehew, Designer.
