English Laundry is the inspiration of designer Christopher Wicks, who was born in Manchester, England in the 1960’s.

THe English Laundry signature styles are inspired by these passions – the music of the 60’s and 70’s along with modern music culture and style.
English Laundry Eyewear is reminiscent of the spirit of the grey skies, rich history, local pub scene, industrial landscape and underground music scene of his beloved Manchester, with each style named after a persona from the Manchester music scene from the 1960’s to the current day.
