Ørgreen Optics Press Event

Last week I visited Ørgreen Optics press event here in Stockholm at wonderful Nobis Hotel. It was a pleasure seeing all the novelties, there are a lot of Bonocle favorites to come.

Örgreen Optics Press Event at Nobis Hotel Ørgreen latest collection, presented at Silmo 2012.

Nowadays the collection also contains many female shapes in interesting colors. All frames are made of titanium and acetate, handmade in Japan and designed in Copenhagen. At their workshop in Copenhagen they’re 15 people working with Ørgreen, where one of them is a full time colorist. You can really tell there is a specialist, seeing the color settings, nothing is left to chance. Most frames are two-colored, with amazing combinations.

This is a limited color edition, due to the fact it’s a vintage acetate from the 60’s which isn’t produced anymore. So you better hurry getting this edition before it’s to late!

For the ladies:

From the new Ørgreen collection you will find delicate female shapes in soft colors. Big up for their fine selection of femal frames, slightly caty and oversized in a balanced way giving a modern female look.

A separate post will come up tomorrow featuring more masculine shapes.

“A face is like a work of art. It deserves a great frame.” – l.a. Eyeworks

I just love the new colors from l.a. Eyeworks, especially their fading colors such as these below:




l.a. Eyeworks will release a book of all their wonderful portrait ad campaigns shot by Greg Gorman with the text “A face is like a work of art. It deserves a great frame.” Here are a few of those amazing shots. I love that they really pushed the blacks in the pictures.

 

Oscar Magnuson 237

The Swedish brand Oscar Magnusson launches a new collection, called 237. It’s a new concept, that offers interesting shapes in a thin acetate. I’m a big fan of thin frames with a nice shape, so I really like this concept. For once you can wear a big acetate frame without allowing the frame become too dominant.

…So why don’t go a little bit more crazy and add some color to the face?
