No Apologies for being Independent

Fresh from our trip to Milan last month we got an unexpected bonus… The largest eyewear exhibition in New York was looking for a top UK practice to travel across the pond to see how they do eyewear, stateside. How could we refuse?!

How could we refuse?!
Lofty ambitions

The New York eyewear scene..

…is certainly thriving. We had lot’s of fun exploring the Loft and met lot’s of great characters, with great glasses!

Bold is beautiful!

New eyewear for Grey Street?

We couldn’t possibly come away empty handed! There are some amazing frames winging their way to the Grey Street shelves. Independent eyewear, handmade in New York and never before seen in a UK opticians… we can’t wait!!! We’ll keep you posted when they land!

We took a day trip to a Brooklyn factory to watch the frame making process! This is the frames getting polished up in a tumbler, ready for action.
