Sun clips are sizzling again, and the trend toward custom clips brings the concept to an area of exclusivity appealing to consumers looking for perfect eyewear and sunwear wardrobing solutions. Approach the custom scenario as one might envision aftermarket speed accessories for a high performance vehicle.
That said, no one does customEYEzing quite like 20/20’s acknowledged Artist of the Clip, David Evan Salk with his eClips. The 20/20 “speed accessory” analogy resonates especially well since Salk addresses his solutions as a customized “chassis” supporting hi-tech lens adaptations.
AND… it’s not just about sun clips. How about eClips (the e3+ and flip+) that flip up… AND… eClips that suit up over your glasses, making them perfect for critical intermediate areas demanded by computer screen reading.
So 20/20 presented Salk with three very different frames: Ogi’s SERAPHIN Oak, JOHN VARVATOS V144 from Rem’s Base Curve Division and MATSUDA’s 10189H, all enhanced here with a variety of clips that solve sun and computer reading situations in an incredibly elegant manner.
