To mark the opening of Cubitts Fitzrovia at 44 Charlotte Street, we’re pleased to announce the arrival of The Fitzrovia Collection: four distinguished made-to-measure silhouettes, available in 175 acetate colours and horn.

Influenced by Fitzrovia’s bohemian past, and four of its most fascinating residents, The Fitzrovia Collection frames take their names from the streets that inspired them.

Cleveland Street, the childhood home of Charles Dickens, has given its name to our exaggerated supra reading spectacle. Fitzroy Square, which served as a setting for Thackeray’s Vanity Fair, has been chosen for our fine-rimmed panto frames inspired by the pioneering architect Edward Lutyens.

Also featured is Rathbone Street, famed for its public houses frequented by the likes of T. S. Eliot and Dylan Thomas, giving its name to an oversized, Maurice Saatchi-inspired frame. As well as our own Charlotte Street, named after Queen Charlotte, whose eponymous frame is a modern, round affair that is not for the faint of heart.

The Fitzrovia Collection is made-to-measure and made-to-order, exclusively at Cubitts Fitzrovia. Come in store to see the full range or to book a consultation.
