Established in 1970, the Linda Farrow brand emerged swiftly into the limelight as a purveyor of high-end eyewear. Linda Farrow, herself a former fashion designer, played a pioneering role by early on recognising the potential of sunglasses as a fashion statement. She consistently produced groundbreaking collections, always in tune with the prevailing trends of the era.
The founder, Linda Farrow (1970)
Following a hiatus spanning two decades, the Linda Farrow brand made a triumphant comeback in 2003, thanks to the efforts of Linda Farrow's son, Simon Jablon.

At the tender age of 24, Simon stumbled upon a trove of his mother's original designs, spurring him to revive the brand's legacy. Initially reintroduced under the moniker "Linda Farrow Vintage," the archival offerings rapidly secured placements in prestigious department stores like Browns and Harvey Nichols.

The extraordinary demand for these archival pieces prompted Simon to breathe new life into the brand entirely. He embarked on designing his own Linda Farrow eyewear collection, upholding his mother's tradition of daring design that consistently pushes boundaries.
