For the kiddos…
Paul Frank has launched “Small Paul”, which is a collection for all the cool kids around the world. The shapes are very fun and the prices are very friendly. Real sunglasses is an important (and fun) investment for your children’s eyes.
Btw! This autumn, they will also launch ophthalmic eyewear for the children. From what I’ve heard, it will be look-a-likes of Paul Franks regular eyewear. So, very soon your kids will be able to match their glasses with yours!
Earlier today we showed you a few true classics. There are many frames inspired by them but with a modern touch.

Barton Perreira Corso Chestnut Antique Gold Brown Lens. VERY similar to the popular Oliver Peoples MP-2.

Paul Frank usually does cool and colorful frames, but as you can see of the samples below they aren’t that colorful as usual. This ones are in a matt back shape and with a lot of attitude! As we’ve been telling you before, we can definitely expect to see more of these matt colors. Matt black is the new black!

Shane Baum has been in the eyewear business for 20 years. He is the president of Baum Vision, former designer for Louis Vuitton Eyewear and current designer of Paul Frank Eyewear, just to mention a few things. Needless to say he has exceptional taste in luxurios quality items. Mr. Baum’s new baby is Leisure Society.
Leisure Society is an high-end handmade luxury eyewear brand with both an optical and a sun collection.
The frames are tastefully detailed with etchings and they look rich, not in the bling way, rather in an “old money”-style. The sun collection holds exceptional quality where the lenses are 99.9% distortion-free and has a 12-layer anti-reflectiong coating. As an optometrist i think the lens quality is important but often times not thought of when buying expensive sunglasses. Of course the price is set even higher when the frames are wrapped in 12 k, 18 k and 24 k gold. Think of these frames as something that will last a lifetime, perhaps to be handed on to the next generations.
Sit back, relax and enjoy this beautiful video. Would you like to join their world too?
