The mermaid in the picture is wearing Cutler And Gross 1029 in Nude Net. Looks like net stockhing or fishing net. Actually there is a layer of net in the acetate!
The frame has a great classic shape which allows a crazy color or fun pattern like this.
Superfun print on the 0690 from Cutler And Gross. Something for the stockbroker.
This girl suits really great in her round sunglasses, and besides she has a very inspiring style. I hope to see more people that has the courage to wear a rare pair of sunglasses, that not necessarily has to be mainstream.
Finally, I had the pleasure to see the whole Oliver Peoples Vintage collection in real life. As we’ve been mentioning before it’s a limited edition collection containing 3 classic models: OP-505, Oliver Peoples very first frame, O’Malley, the famous frame worn by Christian Bale in the movie “American Psycho”, and OP-1955, with it’s significant plastic temple in another color than the front.
The whole Oliver Peoples Vintage collection
I really love the whole vintage concept, that even the spectacle cases, the bags and the product sheets are specifically designed for this limited edition collection. This gives the whole collection a genuine feeling of exclusivity!
You can find more pictures at their official website, which is definitely worth a visit – it’s such a beautiful website, with amazing photos of the collection. Check it out (HERE).
l.a. Eyeworks always has crazy shapes and colors. And now they have the craziest textures as well. It looks and feels like wood grain – feels very soft and natural – but its actual acetate!
Even other brands, such as Vasuma and Theo have made wood-inspired frames. What do You think? Bonocle loves it!
Very exciting: We finally got to open the Leisure Society box! They are just lovely.
Leisure Society’s frames are certainly not like the average frame. This is something really special. The detailing is rich and super fine. Some frames are 24 K gold plated. The sunglass lenses (being scratch proof, anti glare, 12-layered anti reflective treated and 99.9% distortion free) are of the best quality you can find.
We recieved both opftalmic frames and sunglasses. We also love the careful thought put into the details of the etchings in the metal and the case, boxes for the case, cleaning cloth and the lovely booklet that each frame comes with and the lookbook and display material for the shop. Everything is made so carefully. These are truly high end frames.
All frames are handmade in Japan wich gives them the great quality and they were all designed by Shane Baum, the founder of Baum Vision. You can read more about Leisure Society and watch the lovely movie in a previous post we wrote.
Here’s a few of close ups. Enjoy!
Even the small metal piece on the nose pads are etched.
The boxes for the case for the frame.
Love the burgundy on top!
Optical frame in lovely frosty acetate.
Lovely inside and out.
This is a really elegant frame.
Both Jasmin and I bought ourselves a new pair of glasses this weekend, and ironically we both chose a round, retro/vintage, golden metal frame:
Jasmin’s frame is the thin one, from Savile Row. Mine is the second one, it is a vintage frame from Beau Monde that I found in the Bågar & Glas in Gamla Stan (Old Town) of Stockholm.
Below you can see Jasmin wearing her new Savile Row, it suits exceptionally!
We are SO waiting for the sun here in Stockholm!
These sunglasses make me so happy! The streetwear brand Rockwell collaborated with Waiting for the Sun to make these special “La Une” sunglasses in colorful BAMBOO! Talk about special! Each frame comes with a limited edition scarf.
