Big Gem… Little Gem
Pearls, coral, onyx, diamonds—and loads of crystals—
discretely accenting temple tips, subtly enhancing endpieces or boldly highlighting frame fronts… jeweled eyewear is
in a class of its own—the gem class.

More Rimless
Expect rimless frames that don’t look rimless… with lenses that rise above, float below or don’t quite reach the sides. And watch for endless dispenser-friendly variations on the ever-popular drill mount.

Twists on Tortoise
From traditional mottles of medium brown hues to the deepest, densest shades of brown to Havanas splashed with color—especially yellow—tortoise once again wins the race.

Color Guard
Jolts of color inside and out. Startling mixing of contrasting shades. Candy colors. Tropical hues. Marine tones. Red. Orange. Purple. Pink. Black. White. Black and white. It’s all about color… any… and all colors.
