To mark the occasion, Tom Davies, whose bespoke eyewear is worn by high-profile figures such as Ed Sheeran, Brad Pitt and Rita Ora, has designed an exclusive range of floral-shaped sunglasses, priced from £295.These were featured in the window display. Tom Davies said: “I’m delighted to take part again in Chelsea in Bloom and support this fun and vibrant occasion.
