Oscar Magnuson’s 237 Collection just released a new model inspired by the fabulous Iris Apfel. Iris is super inspiring and so colorful!
The shape is just my taste, I want one as sunglasses and one as ophthalmic! Since the acetate is super thin I’m going to go with a crazy color, there are six different to choose from; black, transparent aqua, klein blue, blended caramel, tortoise and crystal.
Ellen, looking gorgeous with her pregnant belly and summer cool style. Love the matte surface of the Ray-Ban Wayfarer she is wearing!

I caught this very colorful and nice looking couple at the Tictail Block Market last week.
He is wearing the bestseller “Keelback” from Vasuma in black. The same model we did together with Vasuma as sunglasses in tortoise with G15 lenses, exclusively to the Bonocle Online Store.
Feather light and flirting with the 70’s hippie style, the MYKITA for BONOCLE project is beautiful and chic. The round design is made by Mykita & Bernhard Wilhelm, inspired by Janis Joplin.
This time in a limited color edition of 10 pieces chosen by Bonocle, exclusively available at the Bonocle Online Store. The construction is hand made in an old school way but with a modern technique and new materials. This allows the frame to be light yet super sturdy.
Follow the process behind the making of “Janis”:
First a thin layer of stainless spring steel metal sheet is cut out and then bent using very simple hand maneuvered machines. Later on the five pieces are put together by hand using no screws.
The inside of the temple tips and the nose pads have transparent soft lacquer which is applied by hand on the inside to make them grip your head.
The nosepads are bent by hand for the perfect angle to create the feeling that the frames are molded to the face.
After getting the perfect base curve it’s time for a nose job! This gives the nose bridge a retro look.
We all now it’s not the craziest eyewear pieces that become bestsellers, but its’s definitely those frames that catch the most attention and have a lot of creativity behind. This is one of those pieces, super cool!
Tictail arranged a lovely Block Market together with Grolsh this weekend. Bonocle was there selling things from our Online Store and of course we coughed a lot of eyewear people. Above you see one of the pictures, featuring Cassandra – the lucky winner of Tictails Sweepstake. Many more pictures to come!
Luca Deasti looking very stylish as always in his glasses from Giorgio Armani. A very delicate and timeless frame.
