Cutler and Gross X The Great Frog: The Reaper Returns

Luke from The Great Frog wears the ‘Mini Reaper’ Optical in Leopard Havana

Run DMC and Aerosmith, Queen and David Bowie, Led Zeppelin and Sandy Denny – artistic alliances have sparked some of the most era-defining work in rock’n’roll discourse. Refreshed in new colourways, the sunglasses and glasses collaboration between Cutler and Gross X The Great Frog continues the theme.

One Ethos, Two Perspectives

Combining over 100 years of heritage handiwork, Cutler and Gross X The Great Frog are united by a shared focus on time-honoured techniques and craftsmanship. But the similarities stop there. Our iconic glasses and sunglasses for men and women take a rebellious turn, recalibrated from a bold new perspective.

Blurring the boundaries between eyewear and jewellery, the frames are punctuated with The Great Frog’s legendary iconography – the Reaper, Crossbones and Daggers – hand cast in precious metals.

“There are no limits when Cutler and Gross think about a frame. Through collaborating with The Great Frog, we bent boundaries and created a new conceptual category that’s far beyond conventional eyewear.”

Alessandro Marcer, Creative Director, Cutler and Gross

Introducing The Limited Edition Mini Reaper

Merging the Scared and Profane, the limited edition Black sunglasses are embellished with a 24K Gold-plated Reaper emblem encrusted with semi-precious Ruby Zirconia eyes. They’re hand crafted in Italy to an exclusive run of 150 units.

“The colour of blood rubies are inherently connected to the gothic world of rock’n’roll.”

Alessandro Marcer, Creative Director, Cutler and Gross

Unapologetic Opticals

The Great Frog’s signature Sterling Silver motifs add bite to the Crossbones optical, which is shaped into our beloved 9772 frame and rendered with moody leopard spots across the front.

Crafted with a chunky squared frame and embellished with Sterling Silver motifs, the Mini Reaper optical is fiercely unique. It’s available in bold Leopard Havana, Deep Blue Crystal, Bordeaux and Black.

Subversive Sunglasses

The Mini Reaper sunglass masterfully merges house codes: a custom Lock Down wire core and Sterling Silver Reaper emblem subverts the frame, which stems from our iconic 1369. Available as clear frame sunglasses in Crystal Sand and Dark Grey, as well as Solid Black, Leopard Havana, and Bordeaux.

“The wire core is engraved with a chain, a symbol that’s been reclaimed by subcultures as a middle-fingered salute to oppressors.”

Reino Lehtonen-Riley, Creative Director, The Great Frog

Presented in a new split colourway of Leopard On Black with Sterling Silver hardware, the Crossbones sunglasses are an irreverent take on a Cutler and Gross classic.
