Round Mykitas

Round eyewear has been all the rage these days, and no one is doing it better than Mykita. These round sunglasses seem to jump right off the shelf, due in no small part to their brilliant purple blue color.

Anne et Valentin’s Pop Art

Anne et Valentin Factory series, blue

This exquisite eyewear from Anne et Valentin is part of their Factory series, an homage to Andy Warhol’s Manhattan 1960’s studios known as “The Factory“. The factory was home to a lifestyle of partying, art production and everything in between for Warhol and his associates.

Like Warhol’s Pop Art, the color of the frame  is saturated and bright. A brushed silver detail adorns the hinges–a nod, perhaps, to the color of Warhol’s first Factory which was decorated in tin foil and silver paint from top to bottom. A keyhole bridge evokes the past.

Anne et Valentin conceived the frame with  curvy, voluptuous and humanistic lines.  A perfect red circle marks the temple tips. The frame is made of polished, translucent acetate with an unpolished, matte concave cutaway on the temples — a nuanced effect that could only be achieved in truly hand-crafted eyewear.
