The Story of Elton John Eyewear

It doesn’t take much to turn glass & wire into glasses.

But it took a man named Reginald Kenneth Dwight to turn glasses into something that can define you.

Creating the Elton John Eyewear range took Elton on an incredible journey through his life, reliving both personal and musical milestones. He was personally involved in the design and realisation of every part of the collection.

Elton John Eyewear comes in three collections inspired by periods in Elton’s life; Academy, Rock ‘n’ Roll and Fame & Fortune. Discover the collections and the moments that made them below.

I have designed frames inspired by some of my favourite outfits I have worn that I know my fans all over the world will enjoy and love.

Come with us back to Elton’s childhood, where young Reginald Kenneth Dwight is proving to be a piano prodigy, earning a prestigious Royal Academy of Music scholarship.

I want everyone that wears these frames to express their own confident, colourful spirit. I love colour and you see that in my clothing and eyewear. We turned the volume up with our frames, using bold designs and colour in unique ways.

We all have our musical awakening; with Elton it was rock ‘n’ roll. Leaving the academy far behind the rebel had found his sound, making waves with session work and penning his own songs.
