In November 1959, a pair of Curry & Paxton’s sunglasses graced the cover of Tatler, the prevailing magazine of the time that focused on British high-society, glamour and sophistication. Curry & Paxton was front and centre. We’ve recreated this model and have named the frame Grace, see here. The following decade is Curry & Paxton’s most notable, appearing on the silver screen and becoming ingrained in society’s consciousness. In 1965, Michael Caine starred in The Ipcress File, the first in the Harry Palmer series based on the novels by Len Deighton.

It won a BAFTA for Best British Film and equally won Caine a loyal following for his effortless style and cockney bravado. Both in and out of character, Caine wore our Yvan tortoiseshell opticals further cementing him as a style icon. Our frames are easily distinguishable via the signature hexagonal pin arrangement on the temples. Funeral In Berlin followed in 1966 and Billion Dollar Brain the year after, however, it was in 1969 when Curry & Paxton hit its peak in the 20th century with The Italian Job.
