When Linda Farrow launched her namesake eyewear collection in 1970, the number of designers who regarded sunglasses as anything more than a merely utilitarian accessory probably could have fit inside a Mayfair boutique. Attitudes have changed since then, but Farrow’s focus on creating ultra-fashionable sunglasses has not. With Farrow’s son, Simon Jablon, at the helm, this London-based label continues to produce top-quality sunglasses and optical frames that run the gamut from refined and traditional to austere and avant-garde. The Linda Farrow Luxe collection offers frames to fit every face shape and taste: oversize rectangular shades and classic cat eyes for traditionalists, flamboyant black wayfarers covered in snakeskin (the Luxe 38) for Roberto Cavalli-inspired trendsetters, even classic aviators with 24-karat gold-plated lenses for diehard eyewear adventurists. Through Luxe and its frequent collaborations with high-end designers and fashion houses (Dries van Noten, Jeremy Scott, and the Row, to name just a few), Linda Farrow remains at the forefront of eyewear design.
