A&A Optical introduces Black Velvet, a modern collection of timeless ophthalmic frames inspired by shapes iconic pop culture figures have worn in the past four decades. The new line, which consists of six men’s and women’s thick acetate styles from the Quiksilver (three men’s styles) and Roxy brands (three women’s styles), have been modernized and developed to ensure the best possible fit. Frames are offered in the latest fashion colors, including combinations of black with brown, green, pink, purple and red.

“The focus of the Black Velvet collection is not only on iconic shapes, but also on creating easy-to-wear frames with no style expiration date,” says Robert Liener, A&A Optical president/CEO. “This collection returns to the brands’ origins with product that resonates brand image.”

Posters, countercards and look books are available to support the new collection.
