Hey Ralph



You can always count on ic! Berlin to up the ante when it comes to great imagery. To showcase the new ralph collection, German photographer Mathias Bothor shot ic! Berlin founder Ralph Anderl and his father. (Great minds think eye-like.)

As for the collection, “to create it we selected six good old shapes from our tuning-department,” says Anderl. “There we changed the inclination (which is like ‘lowering’ cars), added the very new, superhot acetate-temples (which is like ‘chip tuning’) and created a very distinctive and ralphish mix of lens, acetate and metal colors.”

Feel free to share your opinion on the frames as Anderl’s number appears inside each temple. No word as to whether or not you can call collect.
