TOP GUN INSPIRED
THE MATRIX RESURRECTIONS
The Hollywood Glasses Maker
From Warner Bros. to Disney, Tom has spent more than a decade creating bespoke frames for leading characters in a number of hit movies. With eyewear for six new films currently in production, demand for Tom’s designs has gone into overdrive.
Tom's foray into the movie industry began in 2005 when he was asked to design frames for Rowan Atkinson to wear in the black comedy Keeping Mum. He has gone on to produce glasses for more than a dozen major Hollywood films. These include Angelina Jolie in the 2010 movie The Tourist, Brad Pitt in the epic 2016 WW2 film Allied and Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal in the 2019 Spider-Man: Far from Home.
Arguably his most coveted assignment was to reinterpret the iconic frames for the fourth installment in The Matrix film franchise, The Matrix Resurrections. Other distinctive designs include Clark Kent's glasses, as worn by Henry Cavill in the 2016 blockbuster Superman V Batman, and eyewear that followed Cruella's metamorphosis in Cruella, which has just received an Academy Award for Best Costume Design.
British eyewear maker Tom Davies was the filmmakers’ choice to produce new versions of cinema’s most iconic frames for the epic new film The Matrix Resurrections.
Tom designed and produced over 200 bespoke frames for the movie, including characters Neo, Trinity and Morpheus. You can now shop the limited edition sunglasses as seen in the film.
‘The characters in the Matrix series are synonymous with their glasses so this was the most creatively challenging Hollywood commission I have ever had. It was a huge honour to be chosen to create all of the eyewear for The Matrix Resurrections, and terrific to work with the legendary costume designer Lindsay Pugh and the brilliant production team.’ -Tom Davies
