Mykita: A constant search for innovation, the visionary use of materials and a wealth of experience in eyewear design are the defining elements behind MYKITA’s collections.

Andy Wolf: 50 People. Over 90 working steps. 1 frame. Designed and crafted in Austria.

This is the origin of your Andy Wolf frame.
Andy Wolf stands for unique glasses, handcrafted in Hartberg, Austria. It was founded by the three friends Andreas (Andy), Wolfgang (Wolf) and Katharina to produce classic and contemporary frames for individuals. In 2006, the three of them sat down to enjoy a meal of meat and fish from local meadows and waters, market-fresh vegetables and good Austrian wine from the kind of vintner you know personally.
There was one question at that table:
Why aren’t glasses made in such a personal, natural and familiar fashion?
No sooner said than done, we established our base at the Ökopark in Hartberg, which perfectly fit our beliefs. Back in 2006 there were 17 people working here, now there are 50. Every beginning is hard. In our case especially, because producing the entire product in Austria inevitably requires higher prices. Now we’re being represented in over 38 countries. We’ve still stayed together as a family, which includes a fair and amicable relationship to our clients. From design to prototyping, production and distribution, everything is handled here, by us.
Only the acetate for our frames is sourced from Italy, simply because they have the finest available. This way our classic and often unconventional frames are not just pretty, but also durable and sustainable.

Feb 31stFEB31st speaks to all those who look for the essence of things, who are able to see reality with an intense and personal look, who wish to look at the beauty of the things around them. A philosophy that draws its strength and inspiration from its roots, its past, its respect for the people and the resources of our planet to look at a future even closer to their dreams and values.

For this reason, FEB31st has selected wood, a material that is precious and symbolic, sensual and rich in history, elegant and natural, ancient and modern, to be the interpreter of its utopia, through innovative glasses in which color is one of the main features, which expresses a contemporary sensitiveness that seeks uniqueness in sobriety and marries past and future, in a synthesis of lightness, simplicity and sustainability.

So, every day can be February 31: an imaginary and utopic date to tend to and enter in the energizing dimension of dreams, see reality with different eyes and lay on the world a new, conscious and desiring look.

Etnia BarcelonaEtnia Barcelona is art, colour, light, it is Barcelona. It is culture, quality, and it is our people who make this possible, and Mediterranean culture that infuses everything, from the first sketch to the final product. Enjoy the light, feel the colour, savour the Mediterranean breeze and be entertained by the city of Barcelona with us. Enjoy and share our world!

eyeO’s: Featuring state of the art advanced technology that is unprecedented in reading eyewear, eyeO’s using Hex-O-Tech. Hex-O-Tech provides clearer vision and better protection with coatings that are typically associated with premium Rx lenses. These coatings consist of:

Super Anti-Reflecting Coating
Scratch Resistant Coating
Anti-Fatigue Coating
Hydrophobic Coating
UV 400 Protection
Hex-O: Tech lenses are available in aspheric single vision and FT-28 Photochromic

Aspheric lenses, especially when combined with Hex-O-Tech lens technology, provide clear, undistorted, uniform vision, unlike traditional magnifying lenses. The result: great acuity combined with the most comfortable reading experience. FT-28 Photochromic lenses are clear indoors and transition to dark sunglasses within 30 seconds outdoors.
Designed for multi-tasking, they allow you to see as you would normally in the distance and yet you simply lower your eyes to read. Indoors you can read a book and won’t have to take them off to see your friends across the room. Outdoors, they protect your eyes from U.V. and bright light while allowing you to read and enjoy the views simultaneously. One pair to wear for everywhere and for every activity: at work or home, inside or outside, see far see up close. Nurses love them; no putting them on and taking them off. Bank tellers and Sommelier’s don’t have to look down their noses at customers.
eyeO’s more than just a pair of reading glasses.

Persol: Since the beginning, Persol has always been synonymous with artistic expression, the result of a special production process that is carried out entirely in Italy and consisting of craftsmanship, culture, passion and dedication. Persol is a brand that marries culture of excellence and attention paid to details to create a perfect alchemy between aesthetics and technology.

Woow: The WOOW collection has been imagined by Nadine Roth and Pascal Jaulent, cofounders of FACE A FACE. Between traditional and casual, chic and off-beat with ‘trendy London’ feel, the WOOW style will speak to all women and men with a sense of humor. Anti-crisis eyewear! The little message inserted in the end tip of the frame will make the wearer smile first thing in the morning...Better than a couch! The WOOW collection is entirely developed by the Design Studio under the direction of Pascal Jaulent, produced and distributed by the FACE A FACE teams.

 
 
 

Oliver PeoplesOliver Peoples was born in the heart of West Hollywood, California, on iconic Sunset Boulevard, in 1986, when Co-Founder and Creative Director Larry Leight opened the doors to The Company's first optical boutique.

Earlier that year, Leight discovered an estate collection of vintage American-made eyewear that included thousands of beautifully filigreed rimless and metal frames, including clip-on metal sunglasses produced by iconic American companies. All the frames were unworn, in mint condition, and in original packaging. He purchased the entire lot, which included a receipt signed “Oliver Peoples,” who he reasoned was the original owner or distributor. When he decided to sell the estate collection in the retail store, it seemed fitting they use the name. It was then that the Oliver Peoples vision was realized: to design a collection of eyewear and create a unique retail experience in a gallery-like setting.

The Company has maintained a classic yet innovative approach to eyewear from day one, presenting vintage-inspired frames that were a significant departure from the futuristic styles and geometric shapes dominant in the late 80’s. Because runway fashion was moving in a heritage rich direction, the debut of the retro collection was fortuitously timed, as the direction of eyewear changed globally.

Oakley: Started by James Jannard in 1975, Oakley specializes in sport lifestyle pieces that include sunglasses, optical frames, ski & snowboard goggles, watches, apparel and other accessories. 

 

GöttiGötti Switzerland supplies leading opticians in 35 countries in Europe, America, Australia and Asia from Switzerland. The brand has created a respected name for itself among eyeglass wearers through sophisticated design, high quality and innovation, and as a reliable partner in the industry. 

Tom Ford: An American fashion designer, Tom Ford made a name for himself during his 15 years working at Gucci. Over the course of his career he was in charge of eleven product lines including menswear, fragrances, image and store design to name a few. After leaving Gucci, Ford opened his own line of beauty, menswear, womenswear, eyewear and accessories in 2006. With a keen eye for fashion and design Tom Ford is known for his chic timeless designs.
