In this part of the photos for Optik Magazine, Dominique and I wanted to focus on antique style and intricate details such as filigree metal, fine acetates and leather.

The new sunglasses from Oliver Peoples are very chic, the details are delicate and female styles are cat shaped.

Samuel L. Jackson, Most men dress pretty much the same at the red carpet but Samuel L. Jackson showed up in a red velvet tux and super nice round glasses. Nice!

Inspiration of the day – Working Opticians


This is my favorite eyewear advertising picture of all times. Made by Oliver Peoples, sending out the message of handmade products by Working Opticians. Simply amazing, as the brand Oliver Peoples was founded by Larry Leight – an optician himself. It all started with selling vintage frames in his boutique and became later on à own eyewear brand with worldwide recognition.

What is old is new.

What is old is new. There are several glasses in a 1920’s or 1930’s type of style. They are so beautiful and classic. Traditionally made metal frames in a slightly droopy round shape, delicate details in the metal and tortoise colored rims.

Look at the amazing details!

So delicate.
