All Savile Row frames are hand-made to order at their factory in London!
Savile Row frames attract an iconic celebrity following, including Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, John Lennon, Denzel Washington, Steve Jobs, Audrey Hepburn, Rihanna, Eric Clapton, Harrison Ford and even Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter. Their factory, Algha Works, still uses machinery dating back to its origins in 1898. Their frame makers are passionate about creating unique pieces that never go out of style. Hundreds of processes, days of work and years of experience are evident in each tailor-made frame. Like its namesake, Savile Rows hand-crafted frames must be felt to be experienced. Their frames pay homage to a rich history while attracting a young discerning clientele. Savile Row is tailored eyewear at its finest.
Today, handcrafted, made-to-order frames are still Savile Rows claim to fame. Precious metals, such as gold, platinum, rhodium and ruthenium, as well as vintage acetates from a bygone era are molded to create an exceptional frame for the one-of-a-kind customer Savile Row represents.
Retro shapes are the foundation of the Savile Row collection, from the classic round-eye, brought to fame by John Lennon, to the timeless panto, the preferred eyewear of choice of Eric Clapton. The list of stars makes almost unbelievable reading and is a true statement to the brand, its values and its timeless appeal.
Many things haven’t changed: their meticulous attention to detail remains paramount, the classic styles that transcend the decades prevail, and the original machinery survives.
This is Savile Row. The genuine article. A rare find indeed.
A little side note on the Warwick Rhodium Matte Black rim frame in this collection: Because of its distinctive look, and because over 100 models of this frame were made for Daniel Radcliffe in the Harry Potter series, this is also known as the Harry Potter frame. The comfortable W-bridge makes the frame feel even lighter.
