Theo matches the colors of the season

Time to put those bright-colored sunglasses away for the coming months. A new season is on its way and with that comes a new color palette of warm, earthy tones. Havana is a color that goes perfectly with these beautiful Fall hues. See for yourself...

It’s a classic that suits a lot of people: Havana-colored glasses and sunglasses. It’s also a color that works especially well in the colder seasons, when everything in nature goes from bright green to golden yellow, red, and brown.

 

A lot of brands have them in their collection, but today we want to highlight a small collection by Theo Eyewear. Three frames that, even though they don’t have the bright colors we’re used to seeing from Theo, still have that distinctive Theo flavor to them.

New showroom alert: Masunaga

New showroom alert: Masunaga

We proudly present the Japanese brand Masunaga as one of the latest additions to our showroom. This brand is all about true craftsmanship and their handmade glasses and sunglasses stand out with their exceptional detailing. Let's have a closer look...

Founded in 1905, Masunaga is not new to the eyewear game. Over the past 100 years, they have been an important player in making the famous Fukui area in Japan leading when it comes to the manufacturing of eyewear.

 

It’s worth seeing the Masunaga collection up close: all frames are subtly but beautifully embellished with the most elaborate detailing on the nose bridges, temples and temple tips. Made from the finest materials, Masunaga frames are designed to last. Every frame is handmade by their in-house craftsmen. The collection consists of classic models in acetate, metal or a combination of the two. Masunaga is unique without being over the top. The brand is classic, without ever being boring.

 

If you want to see more of the Masunaga collection, please visit our showroom.

New showroom alert: The Black Label Eyewear

New showroom alert: The Black Label Eyewear

If you think a classic and minimalistic eyewear brand can't also design bold and oversized frames, The Black Label eyewear surely proves you wrong. We've recently added their showroom to our site and want to share some highlights of both styles with you...

Whether you are going for an understated frame or for a more extravagant one (or both of course!), with The Black Label eyewear you can be sure the frame won’t overtake your face. All designs are made with the idea that the face should always wear the frame and not the other way around.

Classic shapes in both minimalistic and more vintage inspired styles are made in new and contemporary versions that fit in the latest fashion trends. Comfort is just as important as style, that is way The Black Label uses mostly titanium for their collections.

If this little sneak peak of The Black Label makes you hungry for more, do check out the showroom where you can find the rest of their collection.

It’s all in the details

It’s all in the details

Luxury eyewear brands are not only distinguishing themselves from other brands by the use of high-quality materials and production techniques, but also by the designs of the frames. The attention to detail is unmatched, but not always visible immediately.

All Theo frames have their own unique temple tip

 

Tips that give a frame that bit of extra at Anne & Valentin

When you wear your glasses, people see the front. They’ll notice the use of color or print, maybe an interesting mix of materials like metal with acetate, and details of the nose bridge. The rest of the design is often hidden behind the wearer’s hair and ears: the temple and temple tips.

Balmain Eyewear is known for elaborate detailing  on the temples

But there are brands where the design of a frame isn’t limited to the part that is always fully visible: the front. On the contrary, the temple and temple tips are the parts where they get even more creative. And even if you don’t see them, those details still add to the overall experience of wearing a particular frame.

At RES/REI they love to play around with prints and color for the temples 

Depending a bit on a person's hair style, you can often see the temples of a frame. But the temple tip is almost certainly hidden behind the ear. This doesn’t mean that all brands just add standard tips. Theo, for instance, designs a special temple tip for all their frames. And have you seen the special tips of Face à Face in the form of shoes?

Face à Face temple tips shaped like pumps

At RES/REI they like to play around with colors and mix clear acetate with a printed kind for the temples. Anne & Valentin also pays extra attention to temples and tips. There, they like to vary in temple shapes and mix materials, and the same goes for their temple tips.

Fully rounded temples and tips at RES/REI

We’ve made a nice selection of frames  with cool and interesting details in the temples and temple tips to get you inspired. Ready to see some more? Check out our showrooms of Anne & Valentin, Balmain, Face à Face, RES/REI, and Theo!

Cazal is for all!

Cazal is for all!

Why restrict yourself when it comes to choosing a pair of glasses? Women can look their best with a men's frame, and we love guys who rock cat-eyes. To illustrate our point, here are some women wearing some Cazal frames that are usually worn by men…

A lot of women browse the men’s section of clothing stores for nice sweaters or cool jackets, but not so many think of looking at men’s glasses when searching for new frames. But why not? While super feminine glasses will look absolutely beautiful on some women, others will look way better wearing frames that are a bit bolder and edgier.

 

So, Cazal is a brand that is typically found in the men’s section of opticians. Understandable, but also a bit of a shame because so many women will look super cool with Cazal as well. Cazal glasses and sunglasses have a lot of character and you can’t confuse them with any other brand. They are always unmistakably Cazal. They add character to your face like no other brand does. And as the pictures above prove, that goes for women as well!

More Cazal inspiration can be found in our Cazal showroom!
