The Summer of Sound: Festival Frames

Graham Coxon from Blur wearing 9894 Optical in Aviator Blue

Scorching sun, pulsing beats – festival euphoria is the mood. A sea of tents stretches into the distance, paper pints are sloshed from hand to hand, shoulders surge together towards the stage.  

When not shielding the eyes, aviator sunglasses, square sunglasses, cat eye sunglasses, every-type-of festival sunglasses are pushed back into artfully dishevelled hair. Taking in the view.  

In the noughties, Cutler and Gross customer Kate Moss wrote the rules of festival style on the muddy walkways of Worthy Farm. Her face obscured by a pair of wrap-around sunglasses, a belt slung low across her hips and feet grounded in pirate boots.  

From Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor to Allison Goldfrapp, Liam Gallagher to Blur’s Graham Coxon, cultural icons from across the board have worn Cutler and Gross sunglasses on stage and off.
