MADE TO LAST
Eyewear doesn't need to be purely functional, you're allowed to follow trends, be bold, be adventurous and try something unexpected . . .
We love good design . . .
Eyewear Trends . . .
2023 is already shaping up to be an exciting year for eyewear design with some stunning new models from brands like Good Karma; soft semi-transparent acetates with vibrant interlaced patterns in gorgeous colours.
Their range combines contemporary and more traditional shapes that work well with most face shapes and feminine inspired colouring to compliment most hair colours.
Look out for more greens and aqua to feature in this year's frame ranges along with animal inspired patterns and prints.
We also love a bit of wow factor . . .
Wear Your Eco Credentials . . .
Earth Conscious Optics have been designing and manufacturing eyewear in Northern Italy for quite sometime now. Their latest ranges feature carbon-neutral, bio-based organic polymers combined with recycled metals.
One feature we really like about all their eyewear is the included polarised clip-on. Instantly transform your normal glasses into polarised sunglasses with a clip-on that's identical to the frame so no one will ever notice you're wearing clip-ons.
We love good quality . . .
Feather-Light Pure Titanium . . .
Renowned manufacturers Silhouette first introduced this iconic range in 1999. The feather-light Titan Minimal Art range revolutionised the global eyewear market. Now, 24 years on, it has become one of the most iconic designs in the eyewear world. Pure titanium combined with the highest quality parts in a range of side designs and shapes.
Check out their range here . . .
We love all the details . . .
Uniquely Handmade . . .
We first discovered Johann-von-Goisern eyewear several years ago and were simply stunned by the colours, the finish and the quality. Unlike other traditional cotton-fibre acetate frames, these are laminated vertically in small batches to create the most vibrant and unique bands of colour.
Every frame is traditionally routed and finished by hand. If you're looking for something different, something individual and a striking appearance, look no further . . .
