New showroom alert: Maison Henry Jullien

Maison Henry Jullien has been making glasses and sunglasses since as early as 1921. Henry Jullien thought eyewear to be as important as jewelry. We've recently added their showroom to our website so you can see for yourself what this brand is all about...

Maison Henry Jullien frames are made by hand and require over 279 operations and almost 4 months of work. No surprise, when you look at the fine detailing on for instance the hinges of these metal frames and their temple tips.

 

Over the years, the house also developed a special technique for their gold metal frames. This technique differs from traditional gold platting in that the gold is inextricably linked to the metal base of the frame, giving these frames extreme longevity.

 

Besides their Gold Filled collection, Maison Henry Jullien also has a Nano Fit collection, with all frames weigh no less than a maximum of 5 grams. This eyewear brand offers classic and elegant frames that never go out of style. You can see for yourself in our Maison Henry Jullien showroom.

New showroom alert: Morel Eyewear

New showroom alert: Morel Eyewear

The newest brand in our showroom is one that’s got quite the history. Family-run Morel has been making eyewear since as early as 1880. The fourth generation of Morel’s is now in charge, successfully introducing this French brand to the rest of the world...

Back in the late nineteenth century, Jules Morel who started out as a farmer in the French Jura, created his first pince-nez (a pair of glasses with a nose clip and no temples). It was the beginning of the successful eyewear story of Morel. Over the years to come, the company would slowly grow into what it is now: an eyewear brand with a strong heritage and a global reach.

For today’s collection, the brand often finds inspiration in its own archives. For instance, their 1880 collection offers re-interpretations of designs from the earliest days of Morel: delicate frames with a unique look and a vintage feel to them.

Their collections of optical glasses and sunglasses always complement your face without being loud. But don’t mistake their subtle look for boring. Unexpected shapes, soft gradient colors, and every now and then the use of prints make all Morel frames unique and interesting.

Founder Jules Morel not only had a love for eyewear, but as a farmer also for his land. This love for both is still a prominent part of the Morel brand. The company has committed itself not only to reduce their use of energy sources, become a zero-paper office and reduce their waste, but also to work on biodiversity by hosting 12 beehives on their property.

New showroom alert: Max Mara

New showroom alert: Max Mara

We are happy to announce a new addition to our ever-expanding collection of showrooms: Max Mara Eyewear. This brand is the epitome of Italian style and luxury and its collection of super feminine glasses and sunglasses is so worth checking out...

Italian fashion house Max Mara is probably most famous for its luxurious cashmere coats that are of such high quality that they get passed down from generation to generation. True investment pieces.

Max Mara optical glasses and sunglasses have the same sense of sophistication as we’ve come the expect from this brand and just like the fashion collection, they are made from the highest quality materials. Both the optical glasses and sunglasses are super feminine and timeless. Especially the sunglasses tend to take the term ‘oversized’ to a new level and will definitely add some glamour to your life.

For the SS2022 collection, Max Mara took inspiration from two extraordinary women. Irish architect and designer Eileen Gray who was a pioneer for the Modern Movement. And secondly, Lee Miller. A model, a fashion photographer who had some of the biggest names of her times in front of her lens and also a war correspondent during WWII. Inspiring women, to say the least, that give life to this collection.

If our little selection makes you hungry for more, check out the entire Max Mara showroom here.

Balmain’s boy wonder Olivier Rousteing gives us a new Wonder Boy

Balmain’s boy wonder Olivier Rousteing gives us a new Wonder Boy

A few weeks ago during Paris Fashion Week, Paris was even more about fashion than normal. Among the designers showing their new collections was Olivier Rousteing for Balmain. He gave us clothes, but also a sneak preview of some new Balmain eyewear....

Wonder Boy III in Gold

It’s worthwhile to keep a close eye on the shows during Paris Fashion Week if you like to stay updated on what is happening in the world of fashion, but also in the world of eyewear. Often, designers take the opportunity of showing their new fashion collections to also show the world what they have in store for us regarding eyewear. Take the Balmain show. To finish of the looks of some of the models, Rousteing gave them the newest edition of probably his most famous pair of sunglasses to wear, namely the Wonder Boy III. 

Following two earlier Wonder Boy editions, this third version of the iconic shield frames is of course also made in the typical Balmain color combination of black and gold. A small visor made from titanium sticks out giving this frame a very powerful silhouette. The shields on the temples are covered in the historic Balmain labyrinth motif. Unmistakably a Wonder Boy.

Brigitte in Dark Blue

Besides this iconic pair of sunglasses, a sneak preview of the new Balmain eyewear collection shows some beautiful rounded frames in black, blue and brown and a rectangular one in a soft off-white. Of course, all frames have the complex detailing in gold and metal that is so typical for Balmain. 

Croissy in Dark Brown

You can watch the Balmain fashion show below to see the Wonder Boy III in action and if you’re interested in more Balmain eyewear, there is as always a whole showroom for you to check out.

New showroom alert: Carrera

New showroom alert: Carrera

When you name your eyewear brand after one of the world’s most dangerous car races, the Carrera Panamericana, it’s clear for all that your love for car racing runs deep. But it’s not just sports that influence Carrera. Fashion plays just as big a part...

Carrera was founded in the mid 1950s in Austria. It was then that its founder Wilhelm Anger decided to rename his already existing company ‘Wilhelm Anger Werker’ into Carrera. With this new name the focus of Carrera became similar to the one in sports: pushing boundaries. And that is exactly what this eyewear brand does up to this day.

Combining a passion for design with a passion for innovation, Carrera ended up giving the world some iconic designs. Together with Porsche Design for instance, Carrera was responsible for the first pair of sunglasses with interchangeable lenses. They were also the first to put their logo in the middle of the front part of the frame. Their aviator styles are unique and are the perfect illustration of what happens when you combine sports with fashion. They do it successfully, proven by all those fashion lovers confidently sporting Carrera frames.

 At NanaWoody&John, we recently added the Carrera showroom to our ever-expanding collection of brands. Have a look and discover the latest collection of glasses and sunglasses by Carrera.
