SUMMER EYEWEAR INSPIRATION 2013 // Part I

I teamed up with the talented Dominique Hernandez to create a series of photos for the Swedish Optometry Magazine Optik. For this spread I wanted to use regular eyewear and not only sunglasses just because it was a summer issue. Stay tuned for more photos!

Hope you like it, enjoy!

Wish you all a wonderful summer!

Gogosha’s Eyewear Collection

The Eyewear guru Julia Gogosha-Clark sent me pictures of her fantastic eyewear collection. If you’re in L.A. make sure to visit her stores!

This is a large and very tasteful collection with a few one of a kind items. She stores them in a vintage dental cabinet and holds so many great brands but more importantly really nice designs, colors and unique shapes!

I really admire your taste and collcetion!


This is Julia’s Thierry Lasry Drawer!


The clown was a gift from Moritz from Mykita, It even has Julia’s name stamped inside. Julia sold one just like it to Lady Gaga.

Love the round sunglasses!


Julia’s dog Odessa guarding her massive collection, if anyone gets any ideas.





Only fine eyewear brands here: Theo, Claire Goldsmith, Anne et Valentin, Selima Optique and Cutler And Gross.


The pearl strand is a custom La Loop chain made custom for Julia.


The colorful cat eye is a bespoke from Claire Goldsmith, and says Made for Gogosha in the temple.

New Theo

Bright colors! Bold shapes! Fun and Crazy. New yet timeless. Once you go Theo it’s hard to go back!

This is how I would describe Belgian eyewear brand Theo. The frames are sturdy and durable, the styles are bold and hard to place in a timeframe.











Theo had custom made Belgian chocolate made in a shape of a pair of round spectacles.


Love you right back!

At the fair…Silmo 2011

At Silmo in Paris I met many cool people with cool glasses and I saw a few creative displays. Here’s a mix of the best!


Lidia, the cutest girl of Silmo wearing MYKITA Holly in Pale Blue and Gold!

Fun and crazy frame balanced out by a soft color works great together!

Matte VS Polished

Lately we’ve seen lots of matte acetate frames. This frosty texture adds an extra dimension to the frame and gives it a complete new look. It softens the dark colors and feels very comfortable against the skin. Take a look!

Oliver Peoples Wacks in Sandalwood – you can clearly see the difference, right?
