Beautiful British Glasses from Booth & Bruce
Booth & Bruce eyewear pride themseles on being a British brand, with a perfect mix of high quality and eclectic English style. The label was established in the 1990’s by Peter Booth and Jeremy Sutton, when the pair began selling their glasses around London and their home town of Brighton. Their aim was to to bring fun and funky frames to fashion conscious customers in the UK.
Since those early days, Booth & Bruce has experienced incredible success and gained a reputation for fantastic eyewear around the globe. You won’t just find their frames in Brighton or London nowadays. However, the brand still makes sure to remain true to their British heritage, which features heavily in their marketing and overall image.
The brand represents everything that’s great about the modern British culture of today, from the classic to the eccentric.
Eyewear with a Difference
So, what makes Booth & Bruce so unique? Well, the brand have made it their mission to reshape the look of British eyewear, merging conflicting design elements into something that they refer to as “organized chaos”. Their glasses are a contemporary collaboration of urban chic and quirky design, providing a modern and stylish look for wearers who dare to be a little different.
Elegant yet affordable frames are available in a range of eye-catching designs and an unbelieveable choice of colours, all of which feature fun names such as Cranberry Crush, Blueberry Muffin and many more. From masculine rectangular frames to retro-inspired round glasses, there’s something for everyone in Booth & Bruce’s vast eyewear collection.
