An extensive selection of tortoise patterned frames are currently in stock at all of our Josephson locations. Great variation exists within the range of colour, depth of opacity and degree to which the patterns are mottled. Frames from the collection of German’s Lunor eyewear, for example are available in dark and light Havana, Havana maroon, Tokyo and red Tokyo tortoise, as shown, above.
Further distinctions are achieved through the lamination of additional layers of acetate featuring contrasting patterns, as depicted, below, in the image of a frame by Harry Lary’s.
Matting the surface of a frame provides additional character to models featuring unique colouring. Such treatment was applied to the Mykita sunglass, below, achieving striking results.
