Hooked: Cutler and Gross for Pollini

What do you get when you cross the eccentric, culty British eyewear company Cutler and Gross with the vibrant Italian label Pollini—now headed by designer Nicholas Kirkwood, also English? A quirk level that’s off the charts, that’s what. And so, what their new spring collaboration, which debuts in full this weekend during Milan Fashion Week, lacks in selection (only four styles), it makes up with searing colors and spastic shapes. Think octagonal specs, acid-orange tortoiseshell frames, transparent acetate inserts, and these gold round sunnies—an Anglo-Italian vision if there ever there were. Available at Pollini stores and select boutiques worldwide.
