AM Eyewear teams up with Ti Sento Milano

At NanaWoody&John we love it when our favorite eyewear brands team up with other cool labels. Take this nice collaboration between AM Eyewear and Ti Sento Milano, known for their pretty jewelry. Such a sunny vibe…

That AM Eyewear is a cool brand is no news. Founded in Australia, AM Eyewear slowly but surely made a name for itself worldwide with its high-quality handmade glasses and sunglasses. At Ti Sento Milano, the goldsmiths love silver more than gold: they treat silver as others would only treat gold. Every piece in the collection is made of silver, with yellow or rose gold plating only added every now and then as a design element. 

Earlier this Summer, AM and Ti Sento came together on a beach somewhere warm and sunny and the result of that day is in. And it looks good!

We would totally understand if this collaboration makes you want to see some more frames from AM Eyewear. Luckily, we have a showroom full of them!

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.

How to match your glasses with your (new) clothes. The Victoria Beckham edition.

How to match your glasses with your (new) clothes. The Victoria Beckham edition.

Victoria Beckham is all about glamour and sophistication and her eyewear collection is a perfect match to her style. We made a small selection of frames that match perfectly with some of the beautiful dresses and outfits from her new collection.

Coming season, Victoria Beckham is giving us what she is good at: classic and elegant silhouettes with a good dose of glamour. We’re seeing lots of black, but she’s also adding some nice floral prints to this collection. Add to that classic camel and bright red, and you get the basic feeling of what Victoria thinks we should wear the coming months.

 

Her eyewear collection consists of variations on classic models like aviators and cat-eyes, mixed with more contemporary shapes and made of either bold acetate or more refined metals. And of course, often oversized. A simple way to add some glamour to your wardrobe and your appearance!

If your interested in Victoria Beckham eyewear, do check out our showroom!

The Black Label Eyewear wants to see YOU!

The Black Label Eyewear wants to see YOU!

If you like to wear glasses, but you don’t want them to overtake your face and be the first and perhaps only thing people see when they meet you, then the frames of The Black Label Eyewear are worth checking out. Sophisticated but also minimal and elegant.

For some, it is exactly what they look for in a frame, for others not so much: frames that are bold, oversized, and colorful and that you really can’t miss. The type of glasses that people refer to when they speak about you to someone else. ‘You know, he’s the guy who always wears those big, bright blue glasses.’

If you prefer people noticing your eyes or smile before they realize you are wearing glasses, you will probably like the Dutch brand The Black Label Eyewear because they basically have you in mind when they design their collections.

Two pillars carry the collections of The Black Label Eyewear: one is all about classic but stylish simplicity and the other focuses on giving oversized, iconic designs a modern and refined make-over.

The Black Label Eyewear’s design philosophy can basically be summarized by just one sentence: It’s the face wearing the frame, not the other way around. And when you look at the collection, you can tell they always put this idea first.
