The new models from the British classic Savile Row are in acetate. Available in a handful very traditional and tasteful colors, they are all hand made in London, just like all the other classic frames.
Bex Spex is a San Franscisco based eyewear brand.
Founder Rebekah Kouy-Ghadosh is a licensed optician and has great experience with helping people finding the right frames. Through that process she was able to see people’s need for eyewear that fits a smaller face focusing on that for the inaugural line.
All of the eyewear is handmade in a factory in Northern Italy. Each pair is made using only the finest Italian acetate, customized using the Pantone color system just for Bex Spex.
This charming friend is wearing the Chick-a-Dee frames!
You can really see the different layers of acetate in this picture, love the details!
One of my most loved times of the year is here, Silmo!
Meanwhile, I’m sharing the Bonocle favourites of the MYKITA SS14 collection:
PHILOMENE and PHILO from the MYKITA Decades collection.
The double nose bridge is an absolute Bonocle favourite and the MYKITA SS14 collection have a lot of bridges to offer:
NADA from the MYKITA collection no 2 NIILO and ELLINOR from the MYKITA LITE collection.
I think I might get either ELLINOR or PHILOMENE… or both. Fab!

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

This one works great as both optical and sunglasses! Here you can see Triwa’s colored templetips. FUN!
MYKITA showed such a great collection at the SILMO fair in Paris this October!
Cool new colors such as matte red, green and cobalt blue, accent colors such as neon pink and violet combined with large round shapes is a hit!
Oliverd Goldsmith won the Grand Prix Award as “Best Ladies Frame” at the recently held IOFT Optical Show in Tokyo.
The frame is called Library and was a design that Oliver Goldsmith (the first) made in the 1930’s but in those days it was real tortoiseshell. Today it is only made in acetate!
The l.a. Eyeworks booth really popped out at this year’s SILMO fair in Paris. Bold colors in happy patterns and awesome sculptures covered it all! FUN!
