Robert Graham Stock Rises
As I dashed across town, I felt like quite the quintessential magazine editor, bounding between our September issue photo shoot and interviewing Robert Stock, founder and chief creative officer of the debut optical line on the minds of 20/20 this season, Robert Graham Eyewear from Revolution Eyewear. After encountering the brand's colorful personality firsthand in the showroom atrium—a strong chemistry of primary brights, tailored finery and eclectic murals—I was escorted to Stock's personal office, cheerfully brimming with books, magazines and artifacts of his prolific presence in the fashion industry. We got straight down to business as he inspected one of his own brand's frames in what I took for an extremely successful exercise in focusing himself on what was at hand—relaying relevant, interesting insight into his history, musings on the optical industry and how Robert Graham's newest extension fits into it all. For a brand spanning so many categories, the most notable fact that emerged during my time spent with Stock became the undeniable commitment and research he has invested to build up an immovable confidence in stamping the Robert Graham signature on an unprecedented arena for the brand. We're elated to bring you the inside story of Robert Stock and his optical collection bursting with purposeful details as we welcome the dedicated designer to our industry.
