Bedazzle your wardrobe with Francis Klein frames!

Written by on January 26th 2012

We love the retro, large shapes that Francis Klein introduced in their 2012 collection….and we just received a portion of the order we placed last fall in Paris! Made in France, Francis Klein decorates their frames with swarovski crystals, bobbles and hand-painted decor. If you take a close look at the flowered frame, you can see one of the many the custom colors Francis Klein makes for their frames. By laminating silk fabric within the layers of the frame, they create patterns and colors that are unlike any other!

Because each frame is made-to-order, they take six to eight weeks to arrive at Eye Spy…but this also means that you can choose any color in any shape that you want! But do not worry, will will help guide you through the process…or you can just purchase one of the many custom frames that we have in-stock. Every frame looks like an art piece…so stop in and bedazzle your wardrobe!

Customers of the Week!!!

Written by on December 31st 2011

Ooooh, we can’t take our peepers off of Theodore and Peggy’s new glasses!  They came to visit us at Eye Spy all the  way from the west suburbs with the hope of some fantastic new frames…

Theodore specified that he ideally wanted a lightweight frame, but with a large lens area.  The Mykita Till was the perfect fit!!! They are super light due to the stainless steel material and the aviator style gives him tons of room to see.  He loved them so much that he also bought a sunglass version…the Mykita Clifford.

Peggy, on the other hand, had no clue what she was looking for.  Theodore saved the day by suggesting these beauties…and she was in love!  Theo Eyewitness SE is a flattering shape on Peggy showing off her pretty blue eyes.  The asymmetrical decor gives the frame individuality and fun!!!

Congrats, Theodore and Peggy, you are our Customers of the Week!!!

Our Customer of the Week is Elizabeth!


Elizabeth looks adorable in her fun, new Anne et Valentin frames.  The bold crimson color complements her big brown eyes and dark hair.  She works as a professional actress appearing in Chicago’s theatres and independent films…so its no wonder that she wanted glasses as expressive as she is!
Fun Fact: Elizabeth and her husband, Gilbert Langlois, own the yummiest restaurant, Chalkboard, in Lincoln Square.  It’s such a comfortable, elegant space and they incorporate the influences of so many different cuisines.  mmmmm…

 I don’t want to eat this piece of art from Chalkboard, but…

 …my mouth is watering uncontrollably!

Check out the Chalkboard website  Yum!!!

Congrats Elizabeth!!!
