“To provide a fully bespoke ocular experience rooted deeply within our culture of traditional service and exceptional craftsmanship” – this is the no-nonsense mission statement of a luxury opticals brand founded in London in 1875. Lately the company – which designs all its frames in-house – has encountered a growing interest in styles which have echoes of the first half of the 20th century (notably 1930s and 1940s standards such as the Blenheim and George models).
When it comes to clients from the Far East, meanwhile, director Jamie Davison-Lungley says he has encountered a particular discernment when it comes to the discipline of bridgework. “With any customer, the myriad of measurements pertaining to the nose and lower forehead allows one to accurately understand the build-up of the area, and as such enables one to carry out the design work necessary to craft an aesthetically pleasing and correctly fitting bridge,” he says. ebmeyrowitz.co.uk
