Albert I’mStein

This emerging eyewear brand originates from Poland and is manufactured using high-quality materials in Korea. Their designs feature original shapes with great colour combinations. By mixing the main elements of acetate and titanium, Albert I’mStein has managed to produce some truly fresh and stylish pieces.

One of the things we love most about Albert I’mStein is their willingness to flirt with colours that very few eyewear brands would dare to mix together. But they blend so well and provide the wearer with bold statement eyewear that definitely stands out from the crowd. Each and every piece in their collection is fun and unique.

Albert I’mStein wants their customers to feel bold, unique, and confident when wearing their eyeglasses. They describe their collections as witty and fun, and we couldn’t agree more. To some, their collection may sit on the fringes of outrageous, but the experience of wearing their eyewear is nothing but joyful.

Barkers

To develop their first complete collection of sunglasses and optical eyewear this year, Barkers looked inwards at the classic tailoring, high quality materials and effortless style of their own heritage, and then looked outwards for a global expert who could match those design imperatives.

Bellinger

The focus of Bellinger is to make a statement and leave a lasting impression. Inspired to be refreshing and innovative, Bellinger frames will always have that extra flavor that makes the brand interesting.

Blackfin

Japanese titanium, Italian talent.

It all starts with a titanium slab. But not any old titanium – it has to be the purest in the world.

Faced with a slab of titanium most people just see the metal, but the team at Blackfin can glimpse the soul of their eyewear. Blackfin want to create the best titanium frames, therefore there can be no compromise on quality.

Titanium is the heart around which they build their products. It is a truly special material with unique features, suitable for the realization of optical frames. A frame made of titanium is 48% lighter than a similar one made of the more common nickel / silver. The high mechanic performance, together with the lightness, make titanium the material with the best mechanical strength / weight ratio.

Dutz

Everybody can be so Dutz!

The Dutz collection targets men and women of all ages. Dutz has paid special attention to those with large and small faces who have difficulty finding a frame that fits. Meeting the needs of those that require a larger or smaller size, yet do not want to compromise on design.

Face à Face

Face à Face frames are hand made in France.

Face à Face glasses grew out of a passion for architecture shared by a small group of eyewear enthusiasts. The creator of the original concept behind the collection dreamt of giving eyewear the power to reflect the character of the person wearing it. Face à Face was designed to reveal the sense of the modern that’s in all of us. They felt that nothing could reflect the look that makes each of us what we are, better than our own eyes.

Like an architect, Face à Face works with volumes, shapes, materials, colours and textures to give its glasses the power to express the personality of their wearer, whether that be bold, carefree, energetic, independent or even seductive. Each new collection is preceded by a research and design stage, resulting in new styles enhanced by innovative concepts and incorporating the latest in fashion.
