Claire Goldsmith: Legacy
The Claire Goldsmith collection Legacy pays homage to the spirit of vintage styling forming truly modern classics. Legacy is eyewear that will be noticed for all the right reasons. No logos allow the design and the wearer’s individual style to speak for itself. Classic but with a modern twist, uniquely contoured and incredibly comfortable, Legacy is everything you would expect from a Goldsmith product – perfect balance, the highest grade lenses, the finest raw materials, all made by craftsmen who are eyewear specialists.
Who is Claire Goldsmith?
Claire Goldsmith is the great granddaughter of Oliver Goldsmith, one of the most influential designers and creators of modern day eyewear and the man who once dressed the eyes of iconic fashionistas such as Audrey Hepburn and Michael Caine.
Inspired by her family’s legacy Claire Goldsmith decided that 2010 was the year to launch the new generation of Goldsmith designs and bring the name into the future under the label CG – Claire Goldsmith Eyewear. Claire now makes some of the world’s most sophisticated and beautifully designed spectacles and soon also sunglasses.
Handmade by craftsmenCG only works with skilled craftsmen, some of whom are in England having made frames their whole lives. Some are in Italy the country that literally created eyewear with flair. Some of them are in Japan where technology in manufacturing leads the way. Others are in Germany where precision and excellence is standard.
“If you want a truly beautiful hat yougo to a milliner like Philip Treacy. If you want fabulous shoes you go to Christian Louboutin. If you want glasses that are amazing in quality and are unique and timeless in their design, then you have to invest in a CG frame.” Claire Goldsmith, 2010
