When we first moved to Chiltern Street in 2021, we were pleased to find Monocle as our one of our neighbours.

For over a decade, global briefing platform Monocle, has been a refreshing voice on current affairs, entrepreneurship, culture and design, a purveyor of exceptionally crafted goods, and last but certainly not least, Marylebone’s favourite coffee house.

Situated between Baker Street and Oxford Circus, Chiltern Street is often described as 'a village in the middle of central London' full of independent boutiques and quaint cafes. As in all good villages, Neighbours get to know each other, and soon enough we became friends.

With a shared passion for quality craftsmanship and design, we joined forces to develop a second rendition of our limited edition Chiltern frame.

During our initial meeting, the Monocle team gravitated towards the Chiltern frame, a statement style that pays homage to our shared charismatic street.

In the coming months we worked together to reimagine the frame for the global Monocle wearer. With this in mind, the updated design features are very detail-oriented. The custom-made laminated bio acetate adds depth to the overall feel of the frames with the exposed inner cores and co-branded temple tips balancing out the 8mm thick bold frame.

Only 260 pieces of this elevated MONC x Monocle Chiltern Frame are available, split across three understated colours - Black, Dark Havana and Umber, a brand new colour way to join our offering.

We are proud to be releasing this limited edition style in line with our process of traditional craftsmanship, modern design-thinking and the application of sustainable materials. Sitting between sophisticated and stylish, the frames are a strong choice for spectacles or sunglasses, cementing their place as a MONC favourite.
