Anne et Valentin Trunk Show this Saturday!!!

Written by on November 6th 2012

The Anne et Valentin trunk show is almost here! This Saturday, November 10th you will be able to view and try-on hundreds of Anne et Valentin frames from the new 2013 collection that will be here for one day only!

Anne et Valentin is known for their colorful and playful glasses.  Anne et Valentin uses vibrant colors in many flattering shapes.  They are for the person who enjoys wearing their glasses and wants a signature look.  The collection has a large variety of plastic and metal frames for men and women, so let us help you find the pair that best fits your personality.   Below is a sneak peek of some snazzy new shapes…

Trunk shows are NOT sales…they are exclusive events where the sales rep from each line brings his or her samples for all to try-on. Every sample that the rep has, will be in the store for the weekend only. The shows are open to the public on Saturdays from 11-5 PM...and BY APPOINTMENT only on Sundays from 12-3 PM. 

This is your one and only chance to see every color and every shape available in the current collections. We carry a majority of each collection, but we do not have room to stock the entire collection of each line. If you have been looking for the perfect pair or have something specific in mind, this is the time to come in to Eye Spy. You will be like a kid in a candy shop!!

Oh, and did we mention that these trunk shows will be showcasing the 2013 collections that are not in any stores yet? The only drawback is: you might have to wait a few weeks or a few months to receive your frames….but it will be worth it!! See you soon:-)

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:)

Our Customer of the Week is Sheila!

Who can deny that Sheila looks simply spectacular in her brand new Anne et Valentin specs?! Sheila has been coming to Eye Spy for spectacular eyewear since 2002…so it’s no surprise that she found a beautiful pair of specs from Anne et Valentin.

The whimsical  Objet 3 frame is inspired by a mixture of  80’s architecture and pop art.  Exaggerated geometric shapes and fresh colors are a unique take in the design of this fun series of Anne et Valentin frames.

Congrats, Sheila, you are our Customer of the Week!!!
