Taylor Morris is an eyewear brand I am very familiar with because from day one of their launch, I was there and in the past seven years I have seen them grow and develop into what the brand is today. I remember when they first launched, I did ask, why just sunglasses? Why not roll out an optical range too? To me optical and sunglasses go hand in hand for a brand.
Here they are, finally, seven years later. They are launching their very first optical range. It is an exciting time for the brand. They have harnessed everything they have learned about eyewear from the past seven years and brought it altogether in this optical range so it should be an outstanding collection.
You can view the collection and purchase from the Taylor Morris store over in Notting Hill London complete with prescription lenses for your optical frames or sunglasses. Founder Nicholas Dellaportas says:
‘Following huge demand we have teamed up with a local laboratory with over 40 years’ experience to bring prescription sunglasses to all our customers. We will also be launching an in-store customised lens service offered at a very competitive price.’
Lens prices start from £25 with a range of Solid, Gradient and Mirror lenses and bespoke colours available on request.
If you cannot get to the store due to COVID19 or you’d just rather purchase a pair from the comfort of your own home, head to their online store and take a look. If you do want to pop into store then here is how they are operating during the pandemic. They are offering one-on-one appointments to customers with a private tour of the new space and the chance to try on the designs with guidance from the team. Fully sanitised between appointments, customers can try on the entire collection and browse with a G&T in hand – in true Taylor Morris style. Now, that is how I like to try on my glasses, with a glass of G&T. I vote every optical boutique should offer G&T as standard. Ha!
