Who here watches Made in Chelsea? For my overseas readers Made in Chelsea is a reality TV show in the UK. I am not a massive fan of reality TV- well I don’t get sucked into it. I watch it but if I missed an episode or two I am not going to cry about it and life still goes on. If I am really honest I have not watched any of the latest series. I 100% blame it on my wedding, honeymoon and moving house.
In a nutshell Hugo Taylor from Made in Chelsea has teamed up with an old friend Charlie Morris and bringing us Taylor Morris eyewear. Yes, you heard it right… they have brought out an eyewear collection and at the moment it is a solely sunglass range because they both have a HUGE obsession with sunglasses, so why not design their own… I think I would.
Tomorrow (as in 5th September) we will see the official launch of the unisex range in six distinctive styles and 11 richly defined colours. I have been lucky enough to be invited to the launch so a full coverage will be coming your way! For now the design above will be the only sneak preview I have for you and if you want to see more you will have to wait…
Once it’s launched the collection will be available at Harvey Nichols and how the collection came about is actually quite funny, two friends over some drinks… probably feeling a bit tipsy decided to start doodling on a napkin with some designs and just like that Taylor Morris Eyewear was born! Every great brand should have a funny story like that… if I do eventually do my own collection, I want a story like that too 😉
