There’s a hint of the timeless air of heritage in the boutique luxury eyewear brand Bold London.
Born from the desire to make beautiful & well-constructed eyewear using the finest materials & British artisanal methods, each pair of Bold eyewear is sculpted by hand in the English family-run,` high-grade lens workshop, using time honoured methods passed down from generation to generation.
For those desiring something unique, Bold offers a personalised made-to-order service, whereby your handmade frames - either optical or sunglasses - will be made using your choice of coloured acetate fronts and sides, with your name personalised on the inside arm.
Bold also make a luxe edition, using precious metals and gemstones, working with the finest jewellers in London's Hatton Garden; these bespoke pieces are discreet luxury at its very best.
Taking the Made in England concept one step further, they also have a luxury handmade English bridle leather and suede eyewear case. Made by Whitehouse & Cox, a 150-year-old English leather workshop specialising in small leather goods and seen as a cult brand in Japan... it's an object of desire all by itself.
