The Land of the Titans


Element of Style
Initially wire-ish and recently flat-cut, titanium’s latest evolution is deep shine and bevel effects that reflect light and sleek style.

What’s Your Favorite Color?
Titanium has come along a long and colorful road since its early dull gray days as a frames material. Recent tech turnaround (and its friendly ability to combine with other frame materials) has the mighty Titan wielding an increasingly colorful wand.

Purple Daze
Every once in awhile the hot fashion color of the moment agrees with a shade that complements every skin tone. This purple-hued frame captures that instance of perfection.

Man’s Best Friend
Long a male favorite, titanium appeals to a guy’s sense of strength and style. And… at its most elemental titanium is already a key factor in a man’s world of automobiles, shaving, cameras, audio equipment and… you name it.
