Lady Gaga Rocks Mykita Eyewear!!!

Written by on September 20th 2011
Lady Gaga sure loves her Mykita frames and so do we!  We also enjoy their collaborations, from the simple to the avant garde:

Model, Jane, is a collaboration with Marios Schwab.  As with all Mykita frames, it is handmade and lightweight, mixing form with function perfectly.  Inspiration came from the grungier glory days of the 1990’s.

Above is a frame created by Mykita in collaboration with Herr Von Eden . The Edeneyes model, is bold and chunky, yet is reinforced in a horizontal ’8′ form representing the mathematical symbol for infinity.

The Yuri Model above is a collaboration with Romain Kremer.  Named after Yuri Gagarine, the first man in outer space, the Yuri frame was created to protect our third eye. The idea behind the model was “to reinforce a new type of man, with a sci-fi warrior” appeal.

We are so excited to see who Mykita teams up with this fall season!

Variety is the spice of life!

Written by on March 9th 2011

I just had a really great conversation with a customer. We talked about how wonderful it is to have more than one pair of glasses so you can express with your eyewear how you feel on any particular day.

Feeling like you want to be subtle? Wear the Mykita that has great angles, but, thanks to it’s stainless steel frame, doesn’t overwhelm your features.

Feeling BOLD? Wear the Theo Soixante + 1 and show the world that YES you are wearing RED glasses because you are JUST THAT AWESOME.

Feeling gritty, gross, tired, and so sick of winter you just might quit your job and move to Portugal? Save yourself the time and energy and put on a sparkly Francis Klein. They’re an instant mood booster!

Ahh, the expression that a new pair of glasses can bring to our days. That’s just one of the reasons we LOVE eyewear, it’s such a great way of speaking without saying a single word!

Makeover Party!
Saturday, March 26th from 12-5 PM,

When you sit down with Oprah, you wear your very best.

Check it out!

Roseanne Barr was on Oprah recently and you KNOW she wore her very best eyewear. That’s right, a super-sleuth friend of Eye Spy spotted Roseanne wearing the Francis Klein Koko and called us to let us know how great she looked! Now, Roseanne didn’t get her frame from us (boo), but we do have TON of Francis Klein frames in stock.

We are also pretty darn clever when it comes to specializing a Francis Klein frame just for you because when it comes to the FK, you can choose the color of the frame, the color of the stones, and the shade of green your friends’ eyes will turn when they gaze upon you with unbridled jealousy.
