FRAME WORK

Take a dramatically angled eye shape. Enhance it with a sloping bridge. 
Add exquisitely sculpted temples. Finish it with tapered, translucent tips. 
Such is the architecture of eyewear—The work of the Frame.
It accentuates the face.  It structures the lenses.
It defines the shape.  It is the perfect frame of reference.
