Our adventurous male clientele can rest assured that we have much in store to peek their interests. To discerning gentlemen willing to embrace the new we offer the following examples of contemporary textures and colouration of eyewear, as well as innovations in fabrication:
Mykita of Germany produces its Mylon collection through the process of selective laser sintering. Formed of super-fine polyamide power, these ultra-modern frames feature a unique surface treatment achieved during a patented process. The ‘platinum grey’ colour depicted exemplifies a trend toward the muted and neutral colours gaining prominence in menswear.
The unconventional combination of matted and polished surfaces on a single frame is a strong feature of the current collection from Bevel. The process requires many steps as portions of the frame are masked while the colour finish is applied. This model features a front formed out of a solid sheet of 3mm thick titanium free of solder points.
The dynamic combination of polished acetate elements with matte finished metals has been perfected by Anne et Valentin. Volume of form is achieved in the absence of conspicuous bulk and weight.
The Legacy collection from Claire Goldsmith features hand crafted acetate frames which are distinguished by their sculptural elements and unique colour combinations. This pairing of matte black and jade is particularly natty.
