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

Juha, founder of Mahonki; an online store, one day stumbled upon a pair of wooden glasses and was immediately amazed. We at Bonocle love wooden glasses as well as you can read about here, here, here and here. It feels so nice against the skin and the frames are very light.
These are our favorites from Mahonki.

Carl under the water in his new frames from Garrett Leight.
I love the concept of the Garrett Leight collections: contemporary design of retro shapes with a modern finish. Instead of creating way to many models they offer a handful of options but all with extremely good comfort, fit and best of all: different color and size options. The Garrett Leight Hampton is available in 3 different sizes and 6 colours. Carl already has the frame in two of the colours: Leopard Tortoise and Sage (the one he is wearing in the photos).
You can buy the Garrett Leight Hampton online (here) or at selected independent optical stores and fashion boutiques worldwide, (Stockists).
This old man blew my mind. He was standing in the middle of nowhere selling dried fruit. Beautiful.
I had one of the coolest moments in my life visiting the Sahara desert in Tunisia. Probably the most amazing place on earth, mind blowing.
I spent an afternoon in the desert, riding camels and playing around in the sand. I don’t even know how to explain the feeling. It’s a very incredible feeling watching the infinitive view of desert. Sand, sand and more sand. Very calming and beautiful.
Me, Babba Canales, riding camels with my vintage Marie Claire sunnies.
Amigos, I’ve been in sunny Tunisia the past week enjoying an amazing vacation! Riding camels in the Sahara desert, going on jeep safari, visiting berber people, Star Wars land, spending hours by the pool and simply wearing tons of sunglasses.
I will share my sunny moments of the week here soon. While waiting please enjoy this very lol gif of me wearing a selection of the sunglasses I brought to Tunisia. Stay tuned!
