Precious And Exotic

08 Aug
2015

   Gold & Wood Eyepieces of Luxumberg produce an elegant and contemporary range of  styles in precious metals and exotic materials. In addition to domesticated buffalo horn, Gold & Wood uses natural woods carefully sourced from authorized and controlled regions around the world. The varieties include Ebony from tropical Africa, Bubinga from Cameroon and Gabon, Amaranth from Brazil, Tanganika from Africa and Bolivar from Canada.

The image above depicts a model formed from fine veneers of mauve Birdseye Maple and red Tanganika laminated to sheets of aluminum. The process involves up to 20 production steps, incorporates a hypoallergenic resin and results in the creation of a durable yet light weight frame.

Wooden frames offer a unique tactile experience to the wearer.  Their  organic composition feels natural and familiar against the skin.

For a limited time, a more extensive range of product than we would typically stock is currently  featured at both our Eglinton Avenue and Flagship locations.  It includes a collection of sunglasses.

You are invited to visit both locations in order to appreciate the unique and sophisticated frames handcrafted by the artisans employed by Gold & Wood.

Bright And Bold

04 Aug

  Our assortment of hand made frames by Bevel continue to have broad appeal and remain perennial favorites. We have carried the brand  since 1999 and the quality of  its Japanese production has been as consistent as the classic and minimalist esthetic of each collection.

Founders Richard Mewha and Rick Nelson maintain that eyewear is as essential to personal style and self-esteem as apparel or cosmetics. Their frames are designed with that  adage in mind.

  The dynamic pairing of bright and bold colours applied in matte finishes is a typical  feature on Bevel’s pure titanium models. Hues such as teal, crimson and spearmint constitute a pallet of great breadth and variation.

We invite you to appreciate the range of Bevel’s currant collection, in person, at all of our Josephson locations.
