Here we go! Let’s talk about what makes high end designer eyeglass frames so special. Eyeglass frames have transformed over the years into more than just the three basic types of frames (Plastic/Zyl, Wire/Metal, and Rimless/Drilled). Every designer brand of eye wear has a story and technology behind them to make their frames extra special for you. Designer frames have added new materials into the mix leaving them more durable, comfortable, hypoallergenic, and of course more fashion forward. Here are some of my favorite designer brands that have changed the world of eye wear for all of us.
Did you know that Prodesign has created select frame styles that are biodegradable? They have the appearance of natural wood and are lightly textured. They are stylish and eco-friendly. MYKITA is another innovative designer brand of eye wear that has added the Mykita Mylon collection to their already high-tech and fashionable design. In addition to Mykita’s original collection of hand assembled, stainless steel, light weight frames that have no screws, the Mylon collection uses laser sintering, geometrical configuration, and polyamide powder to create a colorful and 3D looking frame. They are eyeglass frames of the future.
