Making a classy British stamp on eyewear since 1969, founders of the prestigious brand, Graham Cutler and Tony Gross have been pleasing glasses-wearers internationally for many years now. With boutiques worldwide from Hong Kong to Toronto and an even larger number of global stockists, their success can't be faulted. Over the past 46 years they have become known for their iconic sunglasses and opticals and as they continue to grace the pages of magazines and newspapers universally, theirs have become the sunglasses to be seen in. With a celebrity seal of approval from starlets including Lady Gaga and Rihanna, fashion icon Victoria Beckham and British legend Elton John, the brand can do no wrong.

Having already made their presence known down south both in the capital and the city of Bath, the Leeds store has officially become the third one to be based in the UK. Why Leeds? You may ask. After a triumphant 2014 which saw in many successful launches, Cutler and Gross acknowledged the need for a store in Northern England. They felt that centrally located Victoria Quarter was the perfect destination to expand their brand and as a luxury retailer, it's easy to see why. Sitting between the likes of Vivienne Westwood, Reiss and Mulberry, their new 900 square foot store adds a touch more splendour to the beautiful Grade 11* listed building.
