Featured Article: Paul Taylor Eyewear Black Label 2014 Collection



Box Knox

Iconic Sydney-based eyewear designer Paul Taylor just released a new collection, The Black Label 2014 Collection, which was inspired by the Golden Age of 1950’s–one of his favourite genres. The designer prescription glasses, sunglasses and fashion eyewear comes in various classic, glamorous shapes with soft yet colorful palette such as duck egg blue, olive, crimson red, creamy white, charcoal and turquoise with pearlescent glossy finish.

Cat eyes, and square frames are quite synonymous with the particular era, Paul reworked his signature cat eyes style in a more subtle oval shape suited to the everyday wearer. He has also added other retro styles for both men and women reminiscent of this stylish and glamorous age.

“I prefer to mean more to fewer, rather than a little to the masses. Life is too short to wear boring eyewear so I create for those who want to stand out and make a statement” says Paul Taylor.

Our favourite frame is the strong square shaped Box Knox which comes in aqua and black crystal fleck, rich red mottle, tortoiseshell and black. Maren–designed with Paul‘s beautiful friend in mind–is slightly curved and incredibly flattering on female face with divine colors of aubergine front with orange temples, red mottle, black, and white lace and crystal with a touch of glitter.

Paul‘s career spans over 30 years. He began as an Optical Mechanic and Optical Dispenser before turning his talents to the broader eyewear industry with his eponymous eyewear label, Paul Taylor. The Black Label 2014 Collection is entirely made in Italy, using mazzucchelli acetate. Paul also ensuring optimal comfort and protection for the wearer with a partnership with leading lens manufacturer, Carl Zeiss Vision.

The superb quality of the glasses, lens and unique designs earned him cult followers from celebrities (such as Sarah Murdoch, George Miller, Billy Connolly and the late Michael Hutchence), fashion designer (Jenny Kee) and fellow artists (Ken Done) to his loyal customers in Australia and abroad.
