To celebrate, the company will launch three exclusive frames inspired by Cambridge and its residents. They include:

  • A shape worn by Tommy Flowers, English engineer and member of the codebreakers at Bletchley Park
  • A classic Windsor round-eye, celebrating the academic roots of the city
  • A sharp cat-eye, inspired by Finella, the Queen of the pictish maermors and Scottish assassin who killed King Kenneth II - heroine of mythology and legendary inventor of glass.

The building has also been remodelled to celebrate art and culture in Cambridge over the past century, and the design of the shop takes inspiration from Kettle’s Yard and Finella of Queen’s Road.

It will be the company’s second store outside London – its Brighton branch opened in 2020.
