Thin Is In

27 Nov

An increasing number of frames featuring  slim and slender profiles are finding there way to our shops.  The range of designs produced in Berlin by MYKITA are prime examples of this trend towards refinement.

The ‘Lite’ series consists of  stainless steel frames with 3 mm wide temples weighing as little as 12 grams in total. The openly displayed snap-hinge system, which supplied the innovative principle for all subsequent collections, symbolizes the fundamental design principle of MYKITA; the technical solution must at the same time be an aesthetic one.

Beautiful new frames  from Anne et Valentin are also incorporating finer components to produce striking forms of graphic simplicity. We invite you to view these minimalist marvels at our flagship location.

Refinement Redux

15 Mar

Although conceptualized in  Toulouse, France, the ‘ELEGANTES’ collection from Anne et Valentin aims to achieve a very English sense of extravagance that, to the company’s description, “effortlessly combines discretion AND excess”.

These refined frames are  based on classic shapes rendered in modern form. Sober colours coal black and chocolate are paired with matte and gloss gold and silver to produce understated yet intriguing  results.

The models from the collection are named after the Irish author Samuel BECKETT, English poet William BLAKE, English author Samuel BUTLER and English authors Emily and Charlotte BRONTE.  All were  watchful, reflective types who kept their eyes on the world around them.

We hope our  male and female clients, alike, will appreciate these alternatives to the trend of conspicuous extremes . They represent a resurgence of refinement and an economy of scale.
