MYKITA for DOVER STREET MARKET

If you’ve ever been to London for shopping I’m sure you passed by Dover Street Market. If not, you should make sure you do next time in London!

MYKITA corner at DOVER STREET MARKET

In my visit there earlier this spring, they only had a few pairs of Thom Brown glasses and that was all. Very sad, I thought – until just now when MYKITA has opened up a dedicated “MYKITA corner” in this beautiful concept store. Spot on!

To celebrate this awesomeness MYKITA has created two limited edition sunglasses, by giving the models DASH and HUNTER from the MYKITA DECADES Collection a new exclusive look. Light weight as always, with a perfect fit.

MYKITA_DECADES_SUN_DASH_HUNTER_DSMThe sunglasses come with gleaming golden details on the hinges and the double bridge. The sun lenses feature a slight golden mirror effect. Both frames are exclusively available at Dover Street Market in London.

Arnold Kis has created his dream collection: ROZI

Arnold Kis has always been a big fan of sunglasses and followed all the latest trends. But somehow, he always found something he would ave done different. After 2 years of planning and development he has now finally launched his dream collection of sunglasses: ROZI.

ROZI-Handcrafted-Wooden-Sunglasses-2

The frame is made of 8 layers of flat sliced hard maple, the coating, depending on the
type, is made of 1 layer of quarter sliced walnut or ebony. The sheets of veneer are
glued together by ourselves, and are refined with several stages of hand-grinding. Fitting is achieved by bending, which is followed by a careful shaping. All sunglasses uses lenses from HOYA. The low weight, 17-19 grams, and absence of nose pads makes these wooden frames very comfort. The special wooden hinges are made of the world’s hardest wood, ebony, in 3 and 5 layers.

New Dutch Eyewear Brand: Suzy Glam

suzyglam

Suzy Glam is a new dutch eyewear brand, introducing its first exclusive eyewear collection for lovers of pronounced, well-designed accessories.

Swiss jewellery designer and Netherlands resident; Susanne Klemm, designs the collection, in collaboration with Etienne Frederiks; a pioneer in eyewear brands. Susanne has more than 15 years of experience as a designer and her work is part of museum- and private collections all over the world.

Etienne and Susanne

Suzy Glam attaches great importance to a different, more visual way of designing. Instead of starting from a drawing or a computer render, all models are primarily shaped by hand, then fitted and adjusted again. In this way, the design is literally formed on the face. Suzy Glam is convinced that this method gives a different result on the final frame. The collection consists of a series of faceted styles for men and women, based on cut gemstones with strong angles and facets. In the other series the rounded, smooth surfaces give the frames a different tactile expression from normal two-dimensional shaped frames.

Suzy Glam

The Duo pays special attention to the smallest detail and produces the collection in Europe, using high quality Italian acetate.

Visiting Star Wars Land, Tunisia

STAR WARS LAND // BONOCLESTAR WARS LAND // BONOCLE

During my trip to Tunisia I took 2 days for going on a road trip. One of the highlights from the trip was definitely visiting Star Wars land, I had no clue Star Wars was filmed in the desert of Tunisia(!). So cool!

I spent the day together with my latest addition of sunglasses: these awesome shades from Hyde’s. I don’t think they’ve reached the stores yet, but watch out for updates because their latest collection is really awesome.

Pro tip: put prescription lenses in your sunglasses. It’s the best thing to do before a vacation. For a road trip spending the days sleeping in a bus, visiting the desert and very dry environments it’s simply impossible wearing contacts without getting your eyes extremely dry. I’m therefore very happy I had the time to put prescription lenses to these sunnies, and best thing: they look exactly like the original lenses.

The new sunglasses from Oliver Peoples are very chic, the details are delicate and female styles are cat shaped.

Oliver Peoples Suglasses SS13 Mande The acetate used for Mande is really nice and the thickness of the frame really brings the contrasts out!
