Founded by three life long friends, Taylor Morris was started out of a desire to create something which embodied the best of British design, a love of timeless Hollywood glamour and a rock & roll bohemianism.
The three founders, for years could not find the perfect sunglasses which reflected their personal tastes and style, there became a desire to create the perfect product influenced by the city around them. Inspired by images of popular culture icons from the 60’s such as Mick Jagger, Steve McQueen and Marilyn Monroe and the incredible frames they wore, the brand set out to create a modern take on timeless classics. Reworking classic designs with modern colours and intricate design detail, all for an accessible price.
The brand has opened multiple successful pop up shops across west London and Europe, including a beach hut at Bluebird, a boutique in Mallorca, and a mobile VW wagon bringing the Taylor Morris experience to the wider public at events across the country. Taylor Morris now has a permanent home on the bustling and eclectic Golborne Road where customers and friends alike can come and spend time finding the perfect frames while enjoying the Taylor Morris experience.
With stockists across the world from Dubai to Mexico, Taylor Morris has gained a large following who love the brand for high quality frames and classic design. The brand has been worn by A listers and celebrities who recognise the classic Hollywood design elements that have inspired the frames.
In 2020 Taylor Morris took a leap and launched its first full optical collection. Taking all the knowledge and insight gained from 7 years in the eyewear industry and creating a collection that encompasses the classic and timeless design elements that the Taylor Morris customers has come to expect. Inspired by and named after South West London the collection features perennial styles with modern design features and touches synonymous with the brand. From the SW12, a Windsor rim frame to the SW14 the optical variant to the best-selling Rollright style.
With Taylor Morris being born and bred in West London it was only right to find a home in the heart of the area on Golborne Road, only a short walk from the world famous Portobello Road market.
