State of the Union

GenEYE declares the style of a frame is the MOST important ingredient of looking good. And make no mistake: This dramatic statement from Cinzia is GLOBAL in its eye appeal.

CINZIA DESIGNS 5005 from Europa International

Podium Position

She has seen it all. All the styles. All the shapes. And she still wants more. Something completely unique. Something totally hers. Something that says SHE is the champion. OK… Oakley.

OAKLEY OX1070 from Oakley

Clear Winner

Crystal combined with the legendary P3 shape commands a dominance in eyewear that is awesome and powerful in a manner befitting the heritage of BOTH of these classic trends.

Private Club

Some say it is a clubman style. Others insist clubmaster. Some approach it in the combo of different zyl shades sharply fading top-to-bottom. Others go the more classic combo of zyl-to-metal route. In ANY case… GenEYE has an exclusive membership card stating: Eye Belong to This Club.

Lab Partner

GenEYE is the perfect place to experiment with bold style moves such as mixing up and confidently blending color directions. The lucky combination or partnership here is that opti-standard of a Havana front courting rich gold-to-yellow stems.

Rack It Up to Tortoise

So many different shades of Havana. On so many different sizes and shapes of frames. But it looks like tortoise's love affair with eyewear knows no bounds, and these his and her frames elect the mandate that gender poses no objection.

Shimmering Orb

No accessory does color shimmering better than eyewear. It's all about the light on that opti-object of affection.

Big Shot's in Town

This one certainly screams IN your face and ON your face with a declaration that says large-sized frame fronts are NOW and... NOT SHY about it.
