November Trunk Shows!

Written by on October 24th 2013

Are you so excited? It’s that time of the year again when we jam-pack all the Saturdays in November with trunk shows! We’ve got new things up our sleeves this year! Come and check out the new collections from 5 different lines!

First up is Anne et Valentin on November 2nd!

Anne et Valentin is  a small company based out of Toulouse, France. They made their mark back in 1994 when they began design and production of bi-colored acetate frames for their optical shop in Toulouse.


Second, we’ve got Caroline Abram on November 9th! 

Caroline Abram, based out of France, has a lovely new take on vintage shapes with just the right amount of color….and at a nice price-point:-)


Third up is everyone’s favorite: Theo on November 16th!

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.


Fourth on the list is Anni Shades on November 23rd…

AND a Meet the Maker party on Friday, November 22nd!!

Made just over yonder in Ohio, Anni Shades is a small group of guys who are committed to create from what nature has made.  In case you haven’t guessed, it is a sustainably-forested wooden line.

Last but not least is Mykita on November 30th!


Since 2003, Mykita has been designing and handcrafting its stainless steel and plastic frames in-house in Berlin. The frames are avant-garde, perfectly crafted, individual and unmistakable due to their patented screwless hinge concept and clean designs.


We will see you for five Saturdays of brand new frames from the 2014 collections and lots of snacks.

The Breakdown:

November 2nd - Anne et Valentin
November 9th-   Caroline Abram
November 16th- Theo

Customer of the Week!!!

Our Customer of the Week is Elena!

Elena looks absolutely gorgeous in her new Anne et Valentin crimson frames.  The modern cat-eye shape is a classy touch, while the ivory hinges gives them dimension.  We love how the top of the glasses follow Elena’s brow line!  Although the frames are a bold color, they look natural and don’t overpower Elena’s beautiful features.

Drop on by to see our new Anne et Valentin frames, our order is in from the Silmo Trade Show in Paris!!!  Or stay tuned for our next blog…there will be new pics posted :)

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

Silmo…Oui, Oui

The Queen of Specs is off to Paris tomorrow for Silmo!!!

What is Silmo, you ask?  Silmo is the leading trade fair for optics and eyewear and presents the world of optics and eyewear from a different angle. The organizer’s idea is to constantly track both stylistic and technological developments, as well as medical ones.  In order to really get inside the world of the optician, Silmo has created amazing presentations and informative areas covering the most relevant topics of the day.

This is a picture from  the IC Berlin booth last year at Silmo, how exciting! 

The Queen of Specs will be back with information about the most up-to-date lens technology and have sneek-peeks of the newest collections to share with you…so keep posted :)
