This collection, aptly named ‘The Curation’, draws inspiration from Graham Cutler’s vast personal archive of 1950s and 1960s Americana films, books, and eyewear. As Mr Cutler was and remains a resolute archivist, his cyclopean collection boasts over 3,000 vintage frames. Each one meticulously labelled and archived according to shape, era, colour, material, and style.
The muses for this collection were, and in some cases, remain monolithic cultural presences from the 1950s and 1960s. The moodboard for this season draws deep inspiration from legendary icons of Hollywood’s silver screen, and trailblazing American musicians whose style and swagger defined that epoch. Each frame, designated its own moniker, references the figures who influenced its design.
As a nod to ‘Hollywood’s Golden Era’ the Cutler and Gross campaign, shot by Josh Hight is a series of portraits in a stylistic homage to the Technicolour age of film. The cinematic feel of each portrait is achieved through lighting and composition, saturated colour, contrast, and intense character. Discover each style below and shop the full collection here.
