French eyewear designer Thierry Lasry at Silmo Paris.
This one works great as both optical and sunglasses! Here you can see Triwa’s colored templetips. FUN!
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!
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.
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.
At the Silmo fair I run into inspiring Julia from Gogosha Optique. Finally! She is probably the biggest eyewear fan on this planet and she has two optical stores with the coolest selection of eyewear brands from all over the world. Happy to finally meet her in person!
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.
Epos‘ trunks at SILMO ’12 held very classic round acetate frames in early 1900’s style.
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.
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.
