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!
The amazing Brent Zerger, looking even more handsome every day.
I strongly believe in these bold smilghtly curved clubmaster style frames. You can always use some more eyebrows!
The awesome Silverman frame. Love this thick metal frame!
The handsome Aaron made the super surreal sculptures that adorned the l.a.Eyeworks booth at SILMO!
It was so much fun meeting the l.a.Eyeworks Team at MIDO last week! Their booth was as colorful as the collection and they really popped out at the fair.
Pictures from their booth:
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.

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.
The eyewear branch has two important fairs a year and one of them is the Silmo fair in Paris. Every year they arrange Silmo d’Or…
The SILMO d’Or reward the creativity and the inventive spirit for a whole profession. But still more it underlines the interest of the professionals, producers and opticians, for the recognition of a quality control mark.
In the category “optic frame” you find five frames nominated, below you find our favorites:
Vue Dc “Lyz”. Visit their website (HERE).
l.a. Eyeworks “Rialto”. Visit their website (HERE).
We really like the new metal frames and all the structures you can make with metal and how you can recreate a classic acetate frame as a metal frame. Love love love l.a. Eyeworks’ lacy frames and MYKITA’s awesome shapes yet light frames.

Le Corbusier, pseudonym for Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, the famous French-Swiss architect and artist known for contibuting to what is called “Modern Architecture”. He was very loyal to one type of frame, in fact that type of glasses are called Le Corbusier or “Architect frames”.
This type of frame has lots of character, is bold and simple. A great feature is that even strong prescriptions look great in a round think frame like this. Frames inspired by the Le Corbusier frame:
