Eyewear Brand Curry & Paxton Went Out of Business Years Ago … and Now It’s Back

It once was a cult favorite favored by big names such as actor Michael Caine.




Curry & Paxton, an iconic British eyewear brand that went out of business in 1987, is back.

It’s being brought back to life by David Mason, who’s done the same for several other brands, according to the Robb Report.

The website explains that the brand’s products were always “instantly recognizable by the hexagonal pinwork around their hinges.” The new incarnation will preserve that feature.

The brand once was a cult favorite favored by big names such as actor Michael Caine and the Duke of Windsor.

Mason told the Robb Report: “The goal for Curry & Paxton is much the same as the other brands that I work with, which is to restore the name to — and beyond — its former glory, and allow customers to do more than simply buy a product … they are acquiring a piece of history.”

Curry & Paxton’s new line is called the Centenary Collection.
