Cutler and Gross X Kingsman: The Protagonists

The principle of refinement defines the latest Cutler and Gross X Kingsman collaboration. It introduces deceptively simple silhouettes, executed to perfection. From the weight of a temple to the height of a hinge, the essential elements are thrown into focus in the pursuit of flawless forms.

The 0847 Cutler and Gross Kingsman glasses in Striped Mustard Havana.
The Silver Screen

From Anthony Hopkins in ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ to Mads Mikkelsen in ‘Hannibal’ and Daniel Craig in ‘Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery’, Cutler and Gross’s legacy is charted through cinematic history.

A new layer was added to the narrative in 2012, when director Matthew Vaughn approached Cutler and Gross with a vision for his next film, ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’. He sought a pair of distinctive opticals that would be integral to the story and style of a gentleman spy. The resulting Cutler and Gross Kingsman glasses were worn by leading men across the franchise, from Taron Egerton to Colin Firth, Ralph Fiennes to Michael Caine, Samuel L. Jackson to Mark Strong. Fast forward 12 years and the Cutler and Gross X Kingsman collaboration continues to build.

The Protagonists

The latest collection introduces five opticals to the repertoire. Each draws inspiration from Cutler and Gross frames in the 50s and 60s, evidenced in the winged lugs on the 0004, the flat-top of the 1313, and the rounded browline on the 0710.

The distinguished 0868 Cutler and Gross glasses present a quintessentially English silhouette with subtle lugs, while deepened nosepads create a comfortable universal fit.

Retooled in a palette that recalls traditional gentlemen’s clubs – Smoke Quartz, Olive, and Striped Mustard Havana – the signature 0847 Kingsman glasses complete this season’s narrative. The bestselling design formed the foundation for the first collection; read A Story of Espionage and Elegance to learn the origins.
