Iggy Pop looks cooler than ever in this luxury eyewear campaign

Iggy Pop looks cooler than ever in this luxury eyewear campaign featuring rock's favorite jeweler

Jack Waterlot

If you're not well-versed in rock n' roll culture, here's a shortcut to what accessories are helpful in nailing the look: Cool glasses and chunky jewelry – lots of it. When the most famous jewelers in the heavy music realm combine their knack for creating the latter of those things with the former, you have a hit on your hands.

That's precisely what's happened with the collaboration between luxury eyewear makers Cutler and Gross and The Great Frog, a longtime jewelry maker who specializes in rocker-chic motifs such as skulls and crossbones, roses entwined with thorns, snakes, thick chain links, eyeballs, and much more.

The first Great Frog shop was opened in London in 1972 by Carol Lehtonen and Paterson Riley. They quickly established relationships with the world's most famous rock musicians, with members of Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Iron Maiden, and even the Motörhead mastermind Lemmy Kilmister himself coming to the shop to be outfitted in the toughest-looking jewelry around.

Cutler and Gross have also been in business for more than 50 years, beginning in London via a word-of-mouth bespoke campaign that eventually blossomed into the luxury eyewear maker they are today. Their eyeglasses are different because, unlike cheaper makers, they carefully sculpt every "curve, line, and shape," adding the glasses' "elegance, character, and magic have the power to transform people."

The natural choice to model such a timelessly cool collaboration was, of course, Iggy Pop. Photographer Jack Waterlot shot the punk icon on the shores of Coral Gables in Miami, Florida, where Pop has called home since 1995. Even at 75, the singer's inherent charisma and sex appeal is on full display, highlighting not only how stylish he has remained throughout his storied career and life, but also how the perfect pair of shades can transform almost anyone into a rock star in an instant.
