Words by Cutler and Gross
The beautiful and the seductive sea siren is the inspiration behind the Cutler and Gross Spring/Summer 2011 collection ‘The Mermaid and the Officer’.
The Cutler and Gross creative team were inspired by dreamy ocean hues of seaweed green, glittering blues and blacks, nude net and sand all for the Mermaid to entice her Officer, who in return compliments her in emerald green, smokey quartz, petrol and of course the classic and chic dark tortoise shell, but this time with a brand new matt finished.
As we all know the Mermaid possessing a beauty that can drive men crazy with desire, she used her power to demand that the man accept challenges to prove his worthiness of being allowed close to such great beauty. Or they might inadvertently lure a man possessed with a burning passion to danger and doom, the poor man entirely forgetting that he is unable to survive beneath the waves. With such a frisson, how could anyone resist the allure of the Mermaid?
Bypass the darker side of the legends, Instead expect a light and frothy take on things. In Cutler and Gross’ imaginary romantic tale of the Mermaid and her enchanted Navel Officer in the style of 1950’s Hollywood fashion, with the emphasis on the Mermaid’s red luxurious long hair that magically enticed her Officer.
This is a tale of romance and seduction that forms the perfect backdrop for the perfect precision eyewear, ready to transform any sultry tropical beach or harbour-front resort into the ideal location for a whirlwind romance of legendary proportions. With a new collection that practically smells of a fresh sea breeze over a tropical ocean sunset, how could we not imagine ourselves as the handsome ship’s officer or the sultry submarine seductress in a summer of true romance?
If Mermaids are but the dream of men, the Cutler and Gross Spring/Summer 2011 campaign invites us all to join in the dream that might come true……
