Designed well.

Banton Frameworks is a design led brand, we don’t subscribe to the constraints of seasonality found within fashion-led eyewear. We focus on creating high quality, classic designs that won’t look out of place in years to come. The Profile sunglasses collection is our “flagship” product that encapulates our ethos of eyewear that has been: designed well, made well, here in the UK.

We produce our eyewear within our own manufacturing unit. This has meant the majority of the design stage was spent developing our processes. The formative years of Banton Frameworks were spent creating processes, developing our own tooling, sourcing equipment and in several cases designing and making equipment for specialised tasks. This makes the design of an actual frame front appear rather simple in comparison…

Profile is a beautifully considered design. We focus on minimal, timeless aesthetics inspired by classic eyewear from the mid 20th century. Profile’s clean lines and keyhole bridge all allude to the designs of that period. We believe this ensures it will stand the test of time - regardless of fashion.


The colour palette chosen for the Profile collection was again based on the idea of traditional colour and material combinations. Black and Tortoise finishes are an effortless staple. Satin translucent frames within the range were chosen at add a different dimension. The satin finish creates a subtle luminosity within a mono coloured frame.
