As of September we are officially 3 years old. We started Taylor Morris through a shared desire to create something which embodied the best of British design, our love of timeless Hollywood glamour and a rock and roll bohemianism. As best friends for years growing up in London we could not find sunglasses which reflected our personal tastes and style.
We would see pictures of Mick Jagger, Steve McQueen and Marilyn Monroe wearing sunglasses in the 60’s and see a uniqueness and individuality which was not available in any present day offering.
After a long, and rather rosé fuelled lunch together in Ibiza we decided we would devote our lives to creating the quintessential British eyewear brand. Much time has elapsed since then but we now see our designs worn and sold around the world. We have a pure commitment to creating the highest quality frames with a defined style and enduring appeal. We have no greater pleasure in life than seeing our customer happy in their shades! We hope you like our frames as much as we enjoy designing them.
With love, as always
Hugo Taylor and Charlie Morris
“As my best friend I have the pleasure of knowing Charlie and all his glorious weirdness. Charlie has the worst OCD and he brings this obsession to the way he designs. He will scrutinise the smallest details on our frames to ensure their perfection. The colour of a hinge, the shape of a screw, he overlooks nothing. Establishing Taylor Morris with him has been the biggest pleasure. We share such a similar aesthetic value which has in turn led to a continual flow of creativity.”
— HUGO TAYLOR
“Taylor Morris is for those who want to live life they want to. I have never liked asking permission for anything, and it’s this love for freedom and discovery that we bring to our design. People who wear Taylor Morris all share the same passion and enjoyment for life”
