Golden Globe Awards 2012

I chose a few of the glasses at the 69th annual Golden Globe Awards. We could see both bold, chunky and retro acetate frames as well as more subtle metal glasses.

Philippe Starck Eyewear


For you guys who are looking for eyewear with a clean and modern design, but with a unique twist, you should definitely take a look at Starck Eyewear. Designed by Philippe Starck and produced by Alain Mikli the eyewear is a high quality product, handmade with a unique design. Philippe Starck always goes a step further in his designs. The temples are inspired by the human shoulder, that is why they are flexible just like a shoulder. Most of his designs are made in odd materials for spectacles, such as the ALUX Collection where the front of each design is made of a whole piece of aluminum.
