Eyewear designer and optical retail entrepreneur Larry Sands introduces the Paradis Collection, a new luxury eyewear collection featuring sunwear and ophthalmic frames for men and women. A homage to everything Sands ever wanted to create, Paradis Collection incorporates the finest materials with precise craftsmanship. “In the old days, I could not find the eyewear I was dreaming of, so I decided to make it myself,” says Sands. The collection is made in Japan and features trims such as exotic leathers and 24-karat gold RGP (rolled gold electroplating) and equipped with Zeiss lenses. The debut collection includes nine styles with three to five colors available in each style. “Credited for creating the luxury eyewear market and making it the height of fashion” (World Press February 2009), Sands is also recognized for introducing eyewear collections for luxury brands including Matsuda, Kieselstein-Cord, Chrome Hearts and Shamballa Eyewear.
