The Morgan Motor Company, in partnership with fellow British brand Taylor Morris Eyewear, are excited to announce the first official Morgan sunglasses.
The challenge - To design a unique shape combining current trends within the eyewear industry that celebrate the unique features of Morgan’s most iconic model. Working closely throughout the design process, the two companies are proud to introduce a unique design, called the HFS, available in a number of different colourways.
Evoking the style of traditional 1930s racing goggles, the designers used the 3 Wheeler as inspiration for their frames; influenced by the forward mounted engine positioning and perforated tail pipes to create a pair of sunglasses ideal for any Morgan adventure.

An electrifying road trip of form, function and fashion. Morgan and Selfridges collaborate with 9 iconic British brands to deliver an exclusive collection of motoring apparel to coincide with the UK1909 Edition EV3 (Morgan's first fully electric car). Celebrating sustainability and UK craftsmanship in its finest form.
Both born in 1909 in England, Selfridges and Morgan were two iconic British brands waiting for the perfect opportunity to collaborate. With Morgan about to launch their first zero-emission, all-electric car, the EV3, and Selfridges motoring ahead with its drive to put sustainability at the core of its business, the opportunity has finally arrived.
To make this collaboration truly unique, Selfridges and Morgan are creating a limited edition of the EV3, called UK 1909 Edition, blending Morgan’s legendary engineering know-how and iconic design with Selfridges’ famous flair for fashion. The result is a car that is a collector’s item as desirable and beautiful as a piece of art and as practical, comfortable and fast as a 21st century car with carbon neutral credentials should be. A triumph of style and function that honours Morgan’s celebrated craftsmanship, the UK 1909 Edition will only ever be made in a limited edition run of 19 – a number that is a nod to the year during which both Selfridges and Morgan were founded.
As part of the unique collaboration, Selfridges has enlisted nine British brands to produce a driving kit with sustainable accessories for the contemporary recreational motorsports man and woman. The kit is priced separately but can only be ordered with the car.
Some brands such as Alexander McQueen and Belstaff have found Britain-based artisans to manufacture their contributing accessory, instead of manufacturing it overseas as they do with their main lines, to ensure all elements of the UK 1909 Edition, from the car to the driving kit, are exclusively handmade in the UK.

Both Selfridges and Morgan were founded in 1909, and to commemorate our shared British heritage we are collaborating on a world-first limited-edition car, available exclusively at Selfridges.
19 electric three-wheeled vehicles will be available to order, with each car numbered 01-19 and accented with unique features such as a miniature bronze plaque, bronze grills and the best of British materials used in the interiors and hardware.
We are also working with 09 fashion partners, each a pillar of British craftsmanship, to create a limited edition collection of made-to-order driving kit, available exclusively for those purchasing the car and numbered to correlate to each vehicle.
To celebrate the upcoming partnership we are giving away five VIP Morgan experiences for two, including a guided tour of the Morgan factory, a ride in a Morgan 3 Wheeler, a Morgan goodie bag and more.

Lightweight, powerful and effortlessly stylish, the new Morgan Aero 8 is a true British sports car. http://www.morgan-motor.co.uk/aero8/
The most refined Aero product to date, a fitting evolution of Morgan’s most technologically advanced range of vehicles.
The return to open top motoring is one that brings with it new opportunity; a chance to become part of your surroundings rather than an observer. Driving with the hood down amplifies the addictive V8 soundtrack. A dramatic rear opening clam shell boot is used to both tension and hide the mohair hood, whilst the lightweight hard top transforms the car into a coupé. A stiffer all-aluminium chassis and improved suspension are complimented by the improved aerodynamic performance of the hand sculpted body.
