Plant-Based Glasses…What?!

Written by on October 12th 2012

We are absolutely crazy about color at Eye Spy.  That’s why we are in love with cellulose-based acetate frames!!!  Cellulose-based acetate is the highest quality plastic for making glasses; it is strong, lightweight, and flexible.  It is also natural , best for you skin, and the best material for intense bold color!

What is the difference between cellulose acetate frames and injection molded plastic frames?

Injection mold frames are made by injecting a more brittle petroleum based plastic that is liquefied, then injected into an aluminum or stainless steel mold. Colors are added through a spray application then coated and tumbled for shine. Injection mold frames are generally less expensive but considered to be lower quality and harmful to the environment:(

Unlike injection molded plastic frames, cellulose based acetate is made from natural elements.  Wood pulp and cotton fibers are used to create this advanced material and it is one of the highest rated hypoallergenics in the world!!!  It is also bio-degradable and from a renewable source.

This natural material arrives in sheet form and is subsequently hand-crafted using over 60 different processes.  It is soft and malleable and feels nice on your skin.  It takes on rich and complex color treatments and has widest range for transparency, rich colors, and finishes. More complex colorations are able to be produced by layering several colors or transparencies in layers and sandwiching them together. There are endless possibilities for these laminated acetates.  Cellulose Acetate for eye wear is made by forming layers of plastic into large blocks then carefully slicing individual parts, hand polishing and finally assembling them into a frame.

Wow, that’s a lot of info, but it is important when you are in the market for new glasses!  Look for the frames that will not only help you look your best…but are made with best quality plastic.  May we suggest you check out some new Anne et Valentin, Theo, or Rapp frames:)

Here is a peek at the new Anne et Valentin specs we saw at the Las Vegas trade show this year…

The top two shapes “Can” and “Cure” are oversized and quirky, inspired by everything Rock-n-Roll!

The frame above, “Lou”, has great texture accented by bold pops of color…and is considered the Wonder Woman model.  Who wouldn’t feel like a super hero wearing these spectacular specs?

The shades below, “Dallas” and “Dakar” are also inspired by texture and have soft but striking color combinations.  Drool!!!

Yes, I *know* you are excited for Memorial Day this weeekend…but while you are enjoying a cold one and standing over the barbeque, it’s time to start thinking about your daddio. Father’s Day is next month!

These next three weeks will fly by…and before you know it, BAM. It’s Father’s Day. If you did not take our advice and get your daddio a pair of sunglasses last year, or even if you did take our advice, your dad needs a new pair of shades! Take it from us.

I also know that you do *not* want your pops getting cataracts, or wrinkles, or any other bad stuff…and he needs something to update his look. No offense. So, swing by Eye Spy and we can help you pick out that perfect pair…or at least make up a gift certificate for him:-)

Sunglasses and Smooches!

Written by on May 16th 2012

No one loves lipstick quite like the Specs Wrangler, so we thought…why not pair some fabulous lipstick shades with some rockin’ sunglass shades?!

Purple is our favorite color at Eye Spy and we love NO. 15 by Makeup Forever.  We had to pair this amazing shade with Francis Klein’s Flower shades.  Yummy!

 

We adore these Theo Pine shades!  With all the wonderful textures and hues…we decided to go subtle with Nars Turkish Delight lip gloss.

 

Lafont’s Hampton sunglasses are bright and cheery, perfect for a hot summer day.   Why not pair them with MAC’s Good to Go for a perfect bold combo?
