COLORS (at its best) IN OPTICS

Crayola as a brand in children’s eyewear teamed with Colors in Optics. How perfect is that?! Even the colors match the Crayola palette as do the color names. This 20/20 cover is a perfect matchup for sure.

The Silver and Gold Brush

Metal will forever make a demand stand in eyewear for boys and girls. And that burnished finish brings it to a new, modern moment.

Strong Sense of Self

The days of generic, interchangeable unisex styling are total ancient history. Boys and girls want frames that make striking statements about every aspect of a child’s personality and identity. These frames proudly clarion that pride of eyewear ownership for both him and her.

Narrow Road Ahead

This sleek, slim and nifty elongated horizontal takes any boy to the best blue horizon. Look around: Boys love this frame shape almost as much as they love the thought of one day owning a Harley.
