The Sidney & James capsule collection is a homage to the Great British Adventure; long summer walks to the pub, eating fish and chips by the seaside, your camping holiday ruined by the rain. Whilst yearning for travel to far flung corners of the globe, we were inspired to look closer to home for our next adventure. We discovered a newfound love for the hidden gems on our doorstep. The Sidney and James is a celebration of the staycation and an encouragement to enjoy the beauty of our home. Taking their name from one of the most prolific misadventures in British cinematic history – Carry On Camping, these two frames capture the essence of the Sixties.
We were incredibly lucky to shoot this collection at the idyllic Elmley Reserve – an expansive 3300 acres of breathtaking views. From farm to lake, this island located in North Kent keeps wildlife at the heart of everything they do and is a true reminder of the beauty that surrounds us throughout the UK. The breadth of nature across the reserve made it the ideal backdrop for a Great British Adventure in the Sidney and James.
The Great British Adventure Capsule collection is now available exclusively online and in-store at Taylor Morris.
Echoing the oversized and chunky sunglasses made popular in the Swinging Sixties, the Sidney is a retro square frame with a truly nostalgic feel and modern design features.The bold square frames comes in four colourways classic black, tortoiseshell & green, pink crystal and blue tort.
A chunky frame, the James takes its inspiration from legends of the silver screen such as Michael Caine and James Dean. The bold James is perfect for anyone seeking a truly vintage inspired look. The frames comes in four colourways classic black, tortoiseshell, champagne crystal and blue tort.
