Los Angeles seen through l.a. Eyeworks Eyewear – A Video Tryptic

l.a. Eyeworks Kowalski in black

About a year ago the good people at l.a. Eyeworks met a Los Angeles artist named Molly Schiot, and it was love at first sight. (She wears an l.a. Eyeworks frame after all.)

The ensuing collaboration was a trio of videos that focused on 3 Southern California habitats: city, desert and ocean, as seen through the lenses of a pair of l.a. Eyeworks glasses.

City

Music by the Dum Dum Girls, featuring l.a. Eyeworks “Silverman”

 

Desert

Music by Bleached, featuring the vintage “Pico” (similar to the current “Hep”)

 

Ocean

Music by The Babies, featuring Schiot’s own frame: “Kowalski”.

l.a. eyeworks "Quinn" available for purchase at Dan Deutsch Optical Outlook

We can’t wait to get our hands on LA Eyeworks S/S 2011 Collection. Gai Gherardi and Barbara McReynolds, the geniuses behind the brand, have been working their magic again, and we’re counting the days until our shipment arrives.

Among the highlights of the collection is Quinn, a mixed-media cat eye. Gai and Barbara’s talent for color is legendary, and the forces in play in this frame are really exceptional.   Perforated metal in candy-apple red is set in front of translucent purple acetate. The temples echo the duet of color and material, here side by side instead of front to back.  Every element of this frame works together to create a piece that screams wow!
