Customer of the Week!!!

Written by on December 26th 2012

Our Customer of the Week is Lael!

Lael and his wife Eugenie have been coming to Eye Spy for almost ten years!  Eugenie has always had a love of funky eyewear, but it took a bit of persuading to get Lael on board.   A couple of years ago, Lael  decided to take the plunge…he was jealous that his wife always got all the compliments.  Once he bought his first fun pair, he kept coming back for more!  Now, Lael and his wife are the talk of the town!!!

You rock Lael…and you are our Customer of the Week!

P.S. This is Eugenie. She is a hard act to follow!!

CUSTOMER OF THE WEEK!!

Written by on December 9th 2012

Check out these two adorable ladies in their sweet new frames. Miriam (on the left) is wearing her new Theo Dore frame, and Susan (on the right) is wearing her brand spankin’ new Anne et Valentin Fanzine frame.

They look so happy and awesome in their new-found frames…and who wouldn’t be?!

It’s hard to tell from this shot, but they both have blue frames. Miriam’s Theo frame keeps the blue a bit of a secret…unless you are tall and can see the top of her frame! Here is a closer look:

 

Congrats to Miriam and Susan on being our Customers of the week!

Theo Trunk Show this Saturday!!!

Written by on November 13th 2012

For the third trunk show of the month we’ve got Theo, on November 17th from 11-5pm! You will be able to view and try-on hundreds of Theo frames from the new 2013 collection.

In 1989, Theo introduced its ground-breaking collection in Belgium to offer their clients glasses that were definitely not mainstream. Now, Theos appeal to a wider audience, but they still have a soft spot for the individualist.

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!!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. 

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:)

Written by on September 27th 2012

We already have customers asking us about our Saturday Trunk Shows in November…so we figured it is time to put up a post and make it official! We will have the newest of the new, hot off the press, straight from the Paris trade show…100’s of new frames that are not in any stores!

2012 November Trunk Shows at Eye Spy on Saturdays!

 

So, let me set you straight…this is NOT a sale. These are exclusive trunk shows 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.

New Theo Eye Witness Frames!!!

Written by on September 13th 2012

We couldn’t believe our eyes when we saw these *spectacular Theo Eye Witness specs at the trade show last week!

The avant-garde design and bright colors are right up our alley.   The bold pattern is fantastic…and so is the exaggerated shape! The Eye Witness frames are special and so are the select few who purchase these frames. They are produced in very small quantities and are a limited edition series. You can be sure that you will not have the same simply spectacular specs as your BFF:-)

The Eye Witness line was launched in May 1995.  And guess what? These specs are asymmetrical! If you look closely, you can see that the left and right side of the frame are slightly different.  Each model will *not* fit everyone the same. An Eye Witness frame must be chosen that is in harmony with your own facial features….and with the help of the professionals at Eye Spy!

We can’t wait to get these beauties in…we will keep you posted!!!
