You know them by their style. It is eyewear exquisite with a look at once classic, timeless and future-forward. These are specs set with the distinct and rightful purpose of making a luxurious spectacle of presence on the face of the dedicated follower of fulfillment.

The creators of such glasses know the usual limits and yet exceed those barriers near daily in a quest for perfection… in a nearly always unsatiated hunt for creative expression.

The path to this quest for the ultimate accessory is elevated via zyl colorations and metal striations in ever-new looks and combinations, and attitudes held in awe by other product designers in so many other arenas.

Artists such as Christian Roth, Blake Kuwahara, Gai Gherardi, Barbara McReynolds, David Duralde, Jeff Press, Patty Perreira, James Kisgen, Nico Roseillier and choice others in this royal enclave of creative ambition strive to catch the eye for the sake of the eye.

And may we highlight and present the fashionable designer and lifestyle eyewear and sunwear that also strive to fulfill these dreamscapes within venerated brands honored by so many select consumers looking to satisfy with trusted names rich in a variety of proven heritages.

Take a moment to luxuriate. Take a look at the craft of optical masters.

Study and carefully select what works right for you and what works right for those you serve. Set your trends by what you experience on these feature pages.

This is eyewear that is magical. This is eyewear that is mystical. Welcome to the world of The Opti Mystics.
