The 20/20 edit and art team played pool sharks for a day at our June GenEYE fashion shoot at premier NYC lounge Slate. But there’s no hustlin’ here… unless you’re hustling the hottest and boldest eyewear with a youthful edge. Photographer Stephen Sullivan got the cue ball rolling, turning Slate into our very own pool hall of frames. Our models put their best game faces on, pocketing the best spec styles primed for the young (and the young at heart). And for our final shot of the day, we had the pool table covered with a little help from our friends at Cinzia.
Over the past 20 years, I’ve seen some pretty interesting things during clinic time. I recently had the amazing experience of meeting a young man with albinism. In the United States and Europe, there are only one in 18,000 to 20,000 people who have some type of albinism. He was only the second patient I have had the opportunity to work with, and the first Caucasian male. I decided to research the condition.
There’s an internet eyewear retailer whose advertising claims to dispel the “myths” of internet eyewear purchases. Here’s one. “Myth: Online glasses compromise on quality. While there are certain online retailers that sell less-than-quality products, there are plenty of low quality products at retailers that sell at brick and mortar locations. All you need to do is make sure you do your research.” Was that supposed to be reassuring?
