The precisely executed sportswear of designer Mitsuhiro Matsuda was coveted throughout the 80s and 90s. With boutiques in Manhattan, Paris and his native Japan, he introduced the world to an aesthetic based on a blend of English tailoring with traditional Japanese techniques.

Following Matsuda’s death in 2008 and a short absence from the market,  the last remaining product to bear his name is the eyewear line. It is imbued with his sense of style and reflects his appreciation of craftsmanship.

Many of the artisans who made Matsuda glasses up until the late 90s are involved in their creation today. Like the first line, today’s Matsuda eyewear is crafted by hand in the small town of Sabae, Japan of only the finest materials, including celluloid acetate, titanium, sterling silver, 18K solid gold, and 22.5K gold plating.

Our most recent arrivals feature new matte acetate colours including grey crystal, champagne and gradient lavender.  The beautiful laser etched filigree on each frame’s metal components is a true hallmark of  the past and current collections. New metal finishes include brushed silver, brushed gold and rose gold.

We invite you to marvel at the new assortment of Matsuda Eyewear at Josephson Opticians’ Flagship location.

The HENAU eyewear line consists of contemporary styles rooted in a tradition of hand-craftsmanship.  Designer Marc Delagrange’s affiliation with the Belgian brand began in the 1980’s and his bold, voluminous designs remain consistently  avant-garde and unique.

Hand drawn concepts  of characteristically funky yet functional models become tangible forms once crafted by expert technicians in France and Japan.

The depth and dimension of each frame is enhanced by dynamic and unconventional  colour pairings. More substantial in appearance than finer metal frames, these exceptional creations distinguish themselves from understated alternatives.

Offered in a great variety of  size  and colours, an eclectic selection of shapes from the latest HENAU release will soon be featured at Josephson Opticians’ Flagship location.
