Long on Style; Champs on Design
An ultimate accessory brand toasts eyewear as its perfect and ultimate partner.
LONGCHAMP 604S from Marchon Eyewear
Arch Angles to the MAX of high eye style. From Roth never anything less and always something MORE.
VENTRILOQUIST from Christian Roth
Going on Record
Playing up the resurge in classic vinyl records, HIP these days means being PREPared. And these frames power chord the whole “music” theme with the detail of a guitar stock temple tip as well.
VINYL FACTORY De La Rocha from Mad Vision
Let’s Shoot a Double!
Double bridges both done brill. A classy collegiate take on a frame-in-a-frame and “foiling” a classic. Whew. Lots going on here for these two.
DIBERGI from SALT. Optics (on her); JOHN VARVATOS Windsor 518 from De Rigo Rem (on him)
Eyes of the Tiger
Yes, there’s the CatEye shape, but it’s the wild stripes, that dramatic crystal webbing and some deft coloring that makes these shades ROAR.
TRINA TURK Abacos from The McGee Group
Double Bridge… Minus ONE!
Take a trend and then… subtract. We like that math. And always remember the plus one of doing something good whenever it involves TOMS.
RILEY from TOMS
Hippy Hippy Hooray
YSL got the round/retro memo and took it to golden extremes of fine taste.
SAINT LAURENT 136 Zero from Kering Eyewear
Wide-eyed with feline wonder.
KATE YOUNG FOR TURA 536 from Tura
Smoke Gets in Your Eyes
The grand masters of color take to hiding the slightest hint of sky blue in a tobacco-smoked crystal.
JUSTIN from Kirk & Kirk
Welcome to… Paradis
We’ve noted this before for the powers that be behind this new brand. As asides: Two bars as one and those gleaming nosepads knowing comfort to the max. Once again… Enter Sandsman.
