Paul’s phenomenal career in Optics spans over 30 years. The Sydney based designer began from the ground up, first as an Optical Mechanic and then an Optical Dispenser. Turning his talents to the broader eyewear industry, he then set the benchmark for Optical Retailing in Australia, all the while establishing his now celebrated eponymous eyewear brand – Paul Taylor.
An acute attention to detail coupled with his technical background means that no element in the design process is left untouched by Taylor himself. Quality and design are paramount, as are the enduring and beautiful materials used to construct each individual piece – all manufactured to exacting standards in Italy and France.
A partnership with Carl Zeiss Vision means the sunglasses collection benefits from the world’s leading lens manufacturer, ensuring optimal comfort and protection for the wearer.
It’s no surprise that Taylor’s enchanting eyewear has gained an almost cult following – from celebrities and fellow artists to his loyal customers in Australia and abroad. His clients are as diverse and unique as his designs!
The Timeless collection includes his most iconic shapes, from the classic cats-eye to the bold round eye and the now famous rectangular “Hutchence” design. All frames are available in an exquisite range of colours and effects. Their enduring appeal makes them indeed timeless.
The Black Label collection marks Taylor’s latest release, capturing the glamour of the 50’s for the modern day. Soft cats-eye and oval frames set the tone for women with bold square shapes for men. Expect an irresistible colour palette of soft black to greys, burnt orange, pastel blue, cream and crimson red. This collection represents a true coming of age for Taylor so it’s little wonder it has become an immediate success!
So unique and distinctive are the Paul’s frames that they were featured in a painting that is a finalist in the 2016 Archibald prize. The painting by Artist Carla Fletcher was her portrait of Australian fashion designer Linda Jackson. Linda is wearing Paul Taylor eyewear M001 colour c137.
