SILMO 2012 // Triwa

Swedish Triwa displayed their collection at Silmo in Paris this fall. They’ve chosen really nice colors for their acetate frames! Read more about Triwa here.

Right now we have really nice leather sunglass traps from Triwa at our Online Store!


I really like the backlit tables.

This one works great as both optical and sunglasses! Here you can see Triwa’s colored templetips. FUN!


Hello my dear!

SILMO 2012 // MYKITA

MYKITA showed such a great collection at the SILMO fair in Paris this October!

Cool new colors such as matte red, green and cobalt blue, accent colors such as neon pink and violet combined with large round shapes is a hit!


Barbara Canales in matte red sunglasses from MYKITA.


I really love the shape and thickness of this frame!


Super ultra thin and light – yet durable!


It’s fun to have a splash of a bold color and it works really well when it’s this thin!


A new acetate color, here you can really see the transparent parts which I love about it!


Classic double brigde.


Amazing cobalt blue color! I want to see these in clear lenses!


Lovely matte pinkish violet.

SILMO 2012 // Frency & Mercury Clubmaster Style

The many ways of a clubmaster shape, all of them from the Japanese brand Frency & Mercury. I must admit I have a big passion for japanese glasses, they really know how to manufacture high-end frames with attention to details. Here is a classic shape made by Frency & Mercury, available in eight similar color combinations yet very different. Small details make big differences.

Available in shiny black, matte black, matte grey, with gold details, silver details, in shiny, in matte… you name it!

Matte grey with dark grey titanium details.

Matte black with matte silver titanium details.

SILMO 2012 // l.a. Eyeworks


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!

SILMO 2012 // Ugo Cacciatori Eyewear

Meet Ugo Cacciatori, a high-end jewelry designer now launching his very first eyewear collection – presented at the Silmo fair for the first time.

What makes this extension unique, is the way they really succeed transmitting the same feeling of the jewelries into eyewear. An interesting fact is that the glasses aren’t made in regular eyewear factories, but in the same italian factory as the jewelries.

All glasses are made of the finest materials silver and bio acetate.

One of my favorites is this aviator, combining bold acetate with thinner silver details.

SILMO 2012 // ILLESTEVA

Three favorite sunnies from the Illesteva collection, shown at the Silmo fair 2012:

Illesteva is an eyewear brand designed in NY handmade in France, Germany or Italy – it all depends on the special item. They play with both design and materials which has resulted in a interesting collection of frames made of acetate, bamboo, titanium and natural buffalo horn.

SILMO 2012 // Garrett Leight California Optical

This year Garrett Leight California Optical had a monter at the SILMO fair in Paris for the first time! And what a great monter! Filled with the best collection so far and still keeping it classic and unisex.

GLCO has managed to combine the best materials with the best shapes.


These classics are hand made in America. Everything from hinges, acetate and plaques are of the best materials.


These beauties are lovely, slightly cat shaped and made of great custom made acetate.
