Regular price € 660.00

THIS ITEM IS EXCLUDED FROM ALL PROMOTIONAL DISCOUNTS AND OFFERS

The 9101 celebrates the 40th Anniversary of one of Tony Gross’ favourite frames – the 0101. The original 0101 was named after ‘Room 101’ in George Orwell’s Big Brother, where one’s greatest fears would be kept.

Tony wore the archived 0101 frame in Crystal, throughout the '80s, during his frequent trips to New York and London’s elite clubs, becoming his signature look; alternating between the sun and optical versions. 

The 9101 also commemorates Cutler and Gross’ first factory produced frame, choosing an atelier in the Italian Dolomites in 1982, where their frames are still made to this day

The enhanced 9101 Limited Edition is crafted from translucent crystal acetate with gold-plated hardware and integrated with photo-chromatic ZEISS lenses, a transition lens which darken when exposed to sunlight.
Handcrafted at their wholly owned factory based in northern Italy, the making of each frame involves forty-two tailored steps and twelve weeks to create to ensure the highest standard and quality.

The exclusive 9101 Limited Edition is limited to just 101 units globally, each uniquely numbered to identify its uniqueness.
