New Graz

In Paris I met Graz Mulcahy, one of my favorite eyewear designers. Awesome to finally meet him!

You can tell he’s been working hard because he had many of new great frames to show, both sunglasses and optical. They’re beautiful, bold and fun. The colors are tortoise, gray, black and a few matte ones.

Great collection, can’t wait to see people wear them!


On his nose: A new Graz frame. On his neckline: A Garrett Leight sunglass.

I’m also very excited about the new glasses with Windsor rings around the metal on the front, like the one below:

have a pair of the Joel frame (like the one below) that i love because they are bold and perfectly round. I am very happy that Graz also makes them in titanum now, so they’re much lighter! They come as sunframes and optical.


Graz also made this genius poster showing in a humorous and detailed way how glasses are made:


If you din’t know, now you know. Temples are boxed in with a canon a few times.

Framework Posters

Framework has made these awesome limited posters.

I think everyone can recognize a few iconic frames that really are attatched to that evry person’s image and character such as Woody Allan’s, Kanye West‘s or Buddy Holly’s glasses. You can buy them here. I wish the DMC’s were made into one big poster or even a T-shirt.

They are all male actors, artists, musicians or politicians. Where are all the ladies?

Here is a collection of 28 iconic glasses.
