Quiet Please

A planned instance where small steps (the eye size, the colors, the temple detailing, the shape) richly tap into all of your resplendent desires.

To Be Young... Again

The powerful impact of men’s eyewear worn by women persists but Kate Young gives it a concave detailing near the front of the temples, delivering just the right wink of mystery for women.


Royal Blush

With its golden glow infused crystal and a lighter zyl profile, this STATEment is akin to whispered (and totally earned) confidence.

That Club on the Square

With flat top zyl on the top rims and sharply squared corners on the wire bottoms, this clubman style deems itself assured of its past, present and future in the independent eyewear arena.

She Joined the Club

Yes, it’s a take on the clubman but this artful edition makes for a powerful feminine declaration via its deep-blue marble-EYEzed metal front mated to rich golden rims. This is definitely new territory well worth exploring for Calvin Klein, optical, consumers and… you.

One of eyewear’s classic details revives with a new twist, as this rim takes on a zyl coating ever so similar to the tortoise foiling from frames in the past. That respect for optical’s heritage lends an air of qualified sophistication to this panto-minimal.
