6 x colorful glasses from our showroom

Do you dare to wear some color on your face? If so, this blog is for you. We selected six of the most colorful frames from our showroom to inspire you. And if you think color is not your cup of tea, have a look anyway because you might be surprised...

The next six frames are presented to you in random order, because we basically love them all the same. Here we go.

  1. AM Eyewear

We start off not too bold. Just to get you into the mood. This frame from AM Eyewear has a classic Havana brown upperpart, with some light blue, almost lilac action on the lower part. The subtle metal temples tone this frame down somewhat, making it perfect glasses to start with when you want to introduce some color to your face.

  1. Elle Eyewear

Slightly transparent raspberry red with a hint of fuchsia. On paper, this might sound somewhat extreme. But these Elle Eyewear acetate glasses have a nice feminine shape and are actually not too bold. The little textured details on the rims and temples give this frame a little extra.

  1. Anne & Valentin

French eyewear brand Anne & Valentin is known for its love of color and graphics. Sometimes very bold, other times more toned down. Like these round yellow glasses. Unmistakably yellow and round, but the color is soft, and the frame is quite delicate. This way, you can wear color without the color wearing you.

  1. Etnia Barcelona

Moving on to some bolder frames. Etnia Barcelona’s collections are as colorful and diverse as the city of Barcelona itself. Bright blue clear acetate combined with a stripy pattern on the rims, this frame is probably not for everyone. But if it’s a match, it’s going to be a good one.

  1. Res/Rei

When wearing glasses in just one color isn’t enough for you, Res/Rei comes to the rescue. Light brown, purple and a touch of soft green in this frame from their Diamonds collection. This Italian eyewear company produces its own acetate colors and patterns and they are not afraid to make surprising combinations.

  1. Theo

We close the list with Belgian brand Theo. Theo is known for doing everything a little bit different, making it easier for you to stand out in a crowd. Bold use of materials, interesting details and unusual shapes, and of course strong colors. This bright green with purple metal frame says it all, we think.

New shapes and colors from Lunor

New shapes and colors from Lunor

Lunor recently presented us with a new line of optical frames, inspired by mid-century modern styles. And that’s not all. They also added some new colors and frames to two of their existing lines. Let's have a closer look, shall we?

Starting with Lunor's new line called C1. This line of four frames is inspired by mid-century styles but then translated to the 21st century. It consists of two panto shapes, an anatomic and an octagon shape. Made of titanium, with a line of acetate that accentuates the eyebrow area, all frames come in three colorways: silver with black, gold with brown, and rose gold with Havana.

Lunor also added a new panto and anatomic shape to their A11 line, a series of young and timeless frames. They come in new colorways that are inspired by Pantone Color Institute’s yearly color trend forecast: Havana Blue, Havana Rose, and Havana green.

 

three variations on a classic Havana color

The Lunor A5 acetate line has over a hundred different color and shape combinations already, making it a line that can work for almost everyone. This season, four more colors are added based on nature: Apricot, Rosé, Blackberry, and Blackforest Green. Made from slightly transparent acetate, these new colors will appear a little bit different on each skin tone.

If you want to see more of Lunor, you can. Simply visit our Lunor showroom and have a look around.

Take a dip in the ocean with Eque.M

Take a dip in the ocean with Eque.M

Japanese designer Eque.M has been designing eyewear for almost twenty years. He made his first steps in the world of eyewear in the early 2000s when he left Japan to go and live in sunny California. He was drawn there by his love for the ocean and surfing.

Water and surf culture have been great sources of inspiration for Eque.M throughout his career as a designer. First, while working for existing Californian eyewear companies. Later, for his own brand Frency & Mercury which he founded in the USA in 2005. Now that he’s based again in his home country Japan and working for the first time under his own name, surfing is still on his mind. His latest collection for FW2021 is inspired by the 1980s surf scene. The colors of the frames and lenses reflect the colors of the sky over the ocean.  The shapes and details  echo the movements of the waves.

 

Japan has a rich history of making eyewear by hand and so of course Eque.M is making use of the knowledge and know-how that is available in his country. Each frame in his collection of optical glasses and sunglasses is made by hand by Japanese craftsmen. The unique design language of Eque.M is enhanced by the intricate detailing and use of high-quality materials, resulting in a collection that you won’t see anywhere else.

Tradition and innovation perfectly combined

Tradition and innovation perfectly combined

When you’ve been doing something for over 100 years, you know what you’re doing. French eyewear brand Maison Henry Jullien was founded in 1921 and has since been making the most beautiful eyewear collections by hand.

Maison Henry Jullien was founded by Henry Jullien, a representative of glasses who wanted to change the way people think of eyewear to match the way they think of jewelry and watches. To do so, he created his own brand and built a factory in the Jura, the birthplace of the French eyewear industry. Here, in-house craftsmen design and manufacture all frames by hand. The making of a single frame requires no less than 279 operations.

 

The production process of Maison Henry Jullien leans on two pillars: tradition and innovation. The craftsmen represent tradition. Their knowledge and skills have been handed over from generation to generation. Their Gold Filled-technique, where the gold is inextricably linked to the metal base which gives improves the longevity of the frame, comes from their search for innovations.

Tradition and innovation combined, results in high-quality eyewear collections that stand the test of time.

To the moon and back with Silhouette.

To the moon and back with Silhouette.

Have you ever thought about what it must be like wearing glasses in space? At Silhouette, they have. And as a result, their Titan Minimal Art collection has been worn by NASA astronauts for the past 20 years.

In these past 20 years, Silhouette frames have been in space 37 times, adding up to over 11.243 hours. Luckily, you don’t have to be an astronaut to wear these frames. The Titan Minimal Art collection is also available for everyone who prefers to keep their feet on the ground.

So, what makes these frames NASA-worthy? Well, for one these rimless frames weigh only 1.8 grams. A frame this light is not affected by the extreme G-forces you experience when in space, which means it will not float around in the cabin.

Also, in space there are strong vibrations and forces that will cause screws to come loose and start flowing around. Therefor, all frames from the Titan Minimum Art collection are made completely without hinges or screws. You don't want your glasses to fall apart while wearing them, right? 

Besides the space-worthy and rimless Titan Minimal Art collection, Silhouette has many more optical frames and sunglasses, which you can check out in our showroom.
