Chunky is back

TD Tom Davies tells OT  about taking a gamble on thicker acetate frames ahead of the eyewear company’s return to 100% Optical

TD Tom Davies will showcase eyewear from its 2019 collections at 100% Optical when the trade show returns to ExCeL London in January (12–14).

Styles include titanium and acetate combination models, as well as a rebrand of its natural horn collection. Chunky acetate styles will also be launched by TD Tom Davies.

Speaking to OT, founder of the eyewear company, Tom Davies, said: “For the last two or three years acetate has been all about thin sides, but I took a little gamble on chunkier coming back and I’ve been putting big frames into the collection.”
