Meet Smoke & Mirrors

Haven’t heard of Smoke & Mirrors yet? Well, remember the name as you’ll probably see a lot more from them in the future. The brand was newly founded in New York and has brought together a worldwide team of designers with design studios in New York, Paris and in the heart of Tuscany. By looking at the designs you can easily tell the inspiration comes from the late 60s and 70s rock scene.

New Dutch Eyewear Brand: Suzy Glam

suzyglam

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.

Etienne and Susanne

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.
