Modo introduces a new lightweight collection

The most fun part of wearing glasses has to be matching your frames with your mood. Sometimes you wake up and you know it’s the perfect day for your over-the-top big rimmed glasses. Other days, you want to go for something a lot more subtle and refined.



And for those minimalist days, Modo comes to the rescue. One of the things Modo is known for, is its collection of thin frames made of their special Beta Titanium. Super light frames that do not take over your whole face, instead they just add to it some refinement.



Building on their innovations in titanium frames, Modo now introduces us to Beta Titanium Air. A line of super minimalist styles that are even thinner and subtler than the original Beta Titanium frames. Very clean designs with thin lines and stripped of any unnecessary details – not that there were a lot left on a typical Modo frame – in soft blue, purple, burgundy or classic black.

As they say at Modo, these frames give you a ‘lighter-than-air comfort’. Sounds good to us!

Face candy from Ørgreen Optics

Face candy from Ørgreen Optics

Bold and colorful acetate frames are not for everyone, but if they are your cup of tea you really have to take a look at the frames Danish eyewear brand Ørgreen Optics recently added to their collection of optical glasses...

Color has always been an important part of the identity of Ørgreen Optics. They develop all their colors in-house – since 1997 they have used over 400 hues for their different collections – and they are constantly trying to find the most interesting and surprising color combinations. At first mostly for their titanium frames, but now they are experimenting more and more with acetate. And with succes.

To their already wide collection of acetate optical frames, Ørgreen Optics just added another five designs that come in six different colors each. With names like Peaches, Jelly, Candy Cane, Matador, and Goldbear, they hope to make these frames even more attractive. Understandably, because who doesn’t like candy?!

model: Candy Cane

The frames cater to wide and smaller faces and are for both men and women. Models Candy Cane and Peaches capture the soul of this small collection of candy-inspired frames best, we think. Candy Cane is a rectangular frame that comes in triple color combinations like pink/red/gray or caramel/almost black/violet. Peaches is a modern take on a cat-eye shape and is for instance available in brown with ocean blue or soft pink with a black and white pattern.

A trend that is here to stay

A trend that is here to stay

We spoke about this trend in sunglasses before on NanaWoody&John, but in the last few weeks we’ve found some more nice examples that we just have to share with you. They prove this trend is not going anywhere soon. Let's have a look, shall we?!

So, we are talking about bold frames, but not bold in the way that they cover half your face like oversized glasses do. These sunglasses are smaller and end right above or on your cheek bones. They don’t overtake your face completely, but they are not subtle either. Made of thick acetate, either transparent or opaque, and with big temples. They come mostly in rectangular shapes, but we’ve seen some cool cat-eyes out there as well. These sunglasses have been around for a while now, and we’ve seen quite a few celebrities and influencers wearing them. The fact that fashion designers and trend-setting eyewear brands are still playing around with these types of frames, proves to us this trend is still very much alive.

On the 30th of June 2021 French designer Simon Porte Jacquemus showed his new collection for his label Jacquemus. A collection made in strong, plain colors with lots of color blocking and accessorized with big earrings, the small bags that are typical for this designer, and cool sunglasses in exactly the style we’ve been talking about above.

Another example we found at Gentle Monster, an optical brand form South Korea that recently launched their second collaboration with Ambush. Their sunglasses have more of a cat-eye shape and also illustrate the trend perfectly.

And then there’s Linda Farrow who has done a cool collaboration with Milan-based fashion label The Attico. Small but wide, rectangular shaped frames in bright colors or glamorous black and again with big temples.  

Other brands who have these trendy sunglasses in their collection include AM Eyewear, Etnia Barcelona and Scotch & Soda. So many options to choose from... Have a look and get inspired!

East meets West in a colorful new Theo collection

East meets West in a colorful new Theo collection

Beautiful things can come from unexpected combinations. At Theo Eyewear they know that. By combining eastern style calligraphy with western graffiti, they created an eyewear collection full of surprises. May we introduce you to Calligraffiti...

Even though you may have never heard of it, calligraffiti is an actual art form that combines calligraphy with graffiti. The first has been around since Roman time, the latter has of course more recent origins and is street-based. Both share the graphic use of letters and center around the beauty of writing. The origin of Calligraffiti dates back to the 1950s when Middle Eastern and North African artists first started to incorporate Arabic letters in their art as a graphic form.

Theo Eyewear took inspiration from this combination of Eastern letters and Western street art for its new collection they aptly called Calligraffiti. As colorful as we expect from Theo, but with unexpected details and new shapes that echo the graphic language of both calligraphy and graffiti.

Elle Eyewear Made in France celebrates French history

Elle Eyewear Made in France celebrates French history

Elle Eyewear is honoring French women with its new collection of frames. From an important philosopher/writer to a famous tennis player or an activist, all frames are named after women who in one way or the other played an important role in French history.

Simone de Beauvoir should be a familiar name, and most people will also know physicist and chemist Marie Curie. Thanks to Elle Eyewear you can now pay tribute to these ladies – and others – by wearing the frames named after and inspired by them.

The Made in France collection consists of feminine designs made of acetate with small metal details. Some designs are oversized, like the Juliette and the Marguerite, other more demure. Of course, all frames are made in France in the city of Oyonnax.

In Oyonnax, an old factory is housed where French craftsmanship in eyewear found its origin. This factory once started as a manufacturer of jewelry and hair clips made of acetate but reinvented itself successfully in the fifties by making acetate frames. Now, Elle Eyewear partners with this factory that so obviously is part of French eyewear heritage to produce this special collection. A perfect fit for a collection that honors and celebrates the important women of French history.
