ESSILOR launches Eyezen lenses for the digital age.

September 2018

Essilor Eyezeng GreenEssilor is launching a complete new Eyezen range of lenses for single vision consumers to ease the strain of their demanding digital lifestyles.

They are optimised lenses for people spending hours on multiple devices which demand different postures and higher eye declination when using a tablet or smartphone and new distances of use.

They cater for the 18 to 50 year olds whose digital habits force them to focus more intensively and repeatedly to adjust to close and variable distances with frequent switching between devices and increasingly smaller and pixelated typefaces.

“This is creating a new breed of vision symptoms and our research shows that two out of three consumers say digital screens demand extra effort to see well, that three out of four suffer from tired eyes and 70 per cent complain about neck and shoulder pain,” said commercial director Randeep Gill.
“Eyes are also having to endure screen glare, and while indoors are exposed to harmful blue-violet light emitted by some modern light sources.”

The new range offers an exclusive power distribution technology called Eyezen Focus – an extra boost for each patient’s age and physiological needs - to relax the eyes from screens, cut visual fatigue and make small type more readable.

The complete range of digital lenses match to consumers’ natural eye declination and convergence when using digital devices allowing opticians to offer the best visual solution.

“There are a lot of unmet needs here so we’ve developed a new single-vision category and tested it with wearers, achieving a 91 per cent satisfaction score, with high results for colour rendering, visual fatigue and the aesthetic look of the lens.”

“We introduced Eyezen lenses in 2016”, said Gill. “But with this we are offering an enhanced everyday lens that relaxes the eyes, relieves the digital demand, protects against harmful UV and Blue-Violet light and gives a reading lift.”

A new consumer marketing campaign is to be launched. This includes Sky Box Set film advertising aimed at affluent TV marathon-viewers, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube content promoting Essilor’s store locator, and digital campaigns targeting trusted design and technology influencers and pay-per-click spend.

Tom Davies to unveil colour headset together with re-launched colour kits

September 2018

Headset Custom Colours from TDBritish eyewear brand Tom Davies has created a new Colour Headset for stockists introducing a simple but major innovation in their bespoke service. The headset will be launching in September 2018.

The innovative and light-weight titanium headset holds Tom Davies acetate and titanium colour loupes. This will allow customers to ‘try on’ any colours from the Tom Davies collection and visualise what the final frame colour will look like.

The headset provides a reassuring experience for end customers who are now able to select their preferred colour before ordering a bespoke frame whilst helping opticians with their dispense.

Tom Davies accounts will be able to order from 84 acetate colours and 28 titanium colours.

"I stopped selling colour loupes for my bespoke service in 2017 because customer feedback suggested that it was hard to imagine what the colour would look like on a frame. However, I felt we lost something and after designing the headset which can hold the colour loupes like a frame, I realised I had created something special. From that moment, it was a race to get these launched!"

The Colour Headset will be unveiled with the re-launch of the highly requested Colour Kits in September 2018, which will feature twenty new acetate colours and six new titanium colours.

Journalists wishing to learn more about the launch or would like to experience the Colour Headsets with the new Colour Kits during Silmo in Paris or Vision Expo West in Las Vegas,

RACING GREEN joins the Norville Stable.

September 2018

Racing Green Logo
Timeless ~ British ~ Accessible ~ Trusted: Eyewear Collection

Norville Eyewear welcomes a new men’s spectacle collection – Racing Green.


GG002Stepper SI 200-81Racing Green was founded in 1990, a brand built on the best of British heritage. The name comes from the green livery adopted by the iconic British motor racing team dating back to the early years of the 20th century. British Racing Green became synonymous with industry, endeavour and adaptability. Those characteristics continue to define the Racing Green brand.

At the outset, Racing Green aimed to provide high quality casual and formal clothes to British customers. Racing Green sold its collections through mail order, using innovative small format brochures. Its reputation grew and Racing Green quickly became established as a designer brand that is internationally renowned.

Since 1990, Racing Green has taken pride in producing quality British clothing and accessories for men and women. The driving force is of timeless British elegance. Now the Racing Green brand is recognisable all over the world.

Racing Green is both contemporary and classic. The styling is understated and subtle. Norville applies the same philosophy to its eyewear. The Racing Green eyewear collection is simple, sharp, and spot on trend.

The new Norville Racing Green eyewear collection is available in 17 models, each manufactured to the highest quality from original British designs, and displaying the iconic Racing Green wordmark.

Colourways range from classic black, through to subtle shades of navy, brown and grey. Three models – such as RG002 C2 below – even come in the distinctive Racing Green colour itself.

Norville has always been proud to champion British designs, and the introduction of Racing Green into its portfolio strengthens that commitment.

Stepper "Meeting The Needs of Men’s Eyewear"

September 2018

Stepper SI 200-81List all the features that would create the perfect plastic men’s frame and the SI-20081 would probably tick all the boxes.

‘Start with its aesthetics. Confident oversized styling with a large, squared lens shape. A no frills design in subtle, masculine colours and minimal detailing (note the Titanium temple feature).

A modern, slim profile with a classic look that doesn’t overpower the wearer. This covers the look requirements of a frame for so many men,’ comments Peter Reeve, Managing Director of STEPPER UK Limited.

‘Then, add to this the intrinsic qualities of robust material (TX5), a lightness that needs to be worn to be believed (8.8g), hypoallergenic qualities and a bridge comfort that brings day-long effortless wearing and the SI-20081 is a winning choice.’

‘Finally, a solid reputation for quality at a price point that makes this frame a sensible eyewear investment and the appeal for many men is overwhelming,’ concludes Peter.

The SI-20081 is available in Smoke, Blue and Matt Black colourways.

An awe-inspiring and versatile line of frames, as always, hand-made in Italy and produced in one-of-a-kind color combinations.

Cuneofrom UltraAccording to Tommaso Poltrone, Ultra Limited Co-CEO and Marketing and Export Manager: “The outstanding popularity of the Profili Edition over the last few months has been unbelievable, beyond our wildest dreams. Which is why, for the new releases in September, we are even more invested in this line and are already working to follow up on the project with lots of innovations to be rolled out at Mido 2019.”

The new acetate frames are all about a kaleidoscope of colors and feminine details. Modified cat-eye style F-3615 features Mazzucchelli animal print acetate with iridescent colors that shifts shades as it moves in the light.

Blackfin – fall 2018 collection.

September 2018

Blackfin 845The new Blackfin eyewear collection is studded with stylistic features, characteristic elements that embody the brand’s vision. One where titanium responds to a new concept of sophisticated technology that is eloquently expressed in the styles for the coming season.

New craftsmanship processes, combinations of materials, a range of hues that brings back color as the dominating feature – are all part of the ongoing evolution of the brand’s style, a seamless progression of the spring/summer product line.

Blackfin has taken the language of sophistication to new heights, creating an innovative perception of luxury. A new level of refinement is narrated through aesthetic interpretations that speak of the evolution of shapes; new stylistic codes are redesigned, thanks to the skillful use of color. Design minimalism and the technical core of the brand reveal a new stripe of elegance.

Blackfin 840A unique frame structure, created through a special bas relief process, and a sophisticated color palette play up the personality of the Lovers Key BF852 sunglass style, where the squared shape is heightened by the generous top rim, creating an unexpected silhouette skillfully poised between tech and fashion.

The same workmanship is featured in the three prescription eyewear frames: Sandbridge BF849 (lowr right) , a dual bridge with teardrop-shaped lenses; Baylands BF851, a large round version; and Charleston BF840, (right) a rounded – yet slightly panto – form. Three outwardly-simple shapes that distinctly express the brand’s stylistic DNA, defined by a color scheme that ranges from metallized red to electric blue, from pale pink to raspberry, alternating with black, gunmetal grey or cloud white.

Blackfin 841Another stylistic innovation is the beta titanium bridge anchored to the titanium rims that, from round in the Leven BF850 prescription eyewear version, morph into teardrops and then cat eyes in the two Laguna Beach BF842 and Sunnyside BF843 sunglass styles. This fluid interplay of sinuous forms evolves thanks to Blackfin’s skill at blending innovative techniques and design sophistication. Here, too, we find a surprising range of colors: vibrant hues contrast with more neutral tones, highlighted - in the sunglasses - by mirrored lenses in gradient grey, silver, pink or blue.

Blackfin 849

Lastly, the Blackfin Lamina PLUS line – that combines different materials – is back with two prescription eyewear frames. In both the women’s Maryport BF845 (Top) cat-eye style and in the more squared Eastport BF841 (Above left)for men, the splash of color is sparked by striated acetate set against the titanium structure.

New soul for the “block brand” make its debut Eblock (r)evolution

September 2018

The launch of the new line is part of a wider context of the brand rebranding, logo restyling and a brand new communication strategy to keep up the times.
An absolute novelty, three of the new models are available with photochromic lenses.

E Block 4820EBLOCK - young and dynamic Made in Italy glasses brand, known for the exclusive and patented blocking system Easy Block, for the closure of the circle – presents the brand new line EBlock Evolution: the collection evolves just in a new modern line, with a unique and refined design, perfect for a style even more refined and minimalist. The brand distinctive sign, the block, becomes smaller to allow forms and shapes to lighten, temples becomes thinner and, at the same time, the blocking system without screws is modernise. A true hymn to lightness and creativity.

Four new references, 3 unisex and one distinctively feminine, the frame metal is lighter and tells about a minimalism that is expression of a contemporary luxury, in which quality is a fundamental component and not something that it shows off. Shapes with a casual spirit but not too much, elegant enough, in a word contemporary.

E Block 4827The wide and light circle, a must-have that has no age – from John Lennon to Harry Potter. On the wave of evergreen models that do not go out of fashion, even the double bridge, for a strong visual impact. For females, shapes widen and lighten, for a big butterfly effect and a touch of colour that underline the eyebrow arch.

A Navigator model with square shape and a double bridge. But the absolute novelty is that three of the new models – the unisex models – are available with photochromic lenses: the lenses start from an “aperitivo” colour – not totally transparent – to reach a 80% or more of darkening. This new offer enriches the EBlock sun collection, which includes clip-on suitable for 4 model of the Be Original collection.

Tom Davies launches innovative new nose fitting templates for his bespoke service.

August 2018

TD Fitting TemplatelonDana Buchman Poppi
British eyewear designer Tom Davies launches 48 new nose fitting templates for stockists to take the innovative bespoke service to the next level.

The bespoke service allows stockists to design frames which are uniquely tailored to customers’ facial measurements and preferences. This includes measurements of the head, ear and most importantly the nose bridge which is the first step in creating perfectly fitted frames according to Tom Davies.

After years of continued research and eleven years using their fitting template system, these are the first nose fitting templates released by the brand for four years.

“Over the last 18 months I have been spending a lot of time in my own retail stores bespoking a lot of customers and I realised that as styles had changed, my fitting templates had not. I needed some bigger, deeper shapes. I set about redesigning my entire collection and adding lots of new brilliant and comfortable nose fits at the same time.”

The new set can be purchased as a stand alone set of 48 pieces through the Tom Davies cloud based system Supertool. Current Tom Davies bespoke accounts can add these to their existing collection of fitting templates.

“These new fitting templates compliment what we already have in the market but if you are new to Tom Davies, these are a fantastic way to get started with perfectly fitted bespoke frames!”

The new fitting templates will be unveiled in September 2018 and will be available to stockists who are certified as a Tom Davies bespoke account.

Mykita new cropped cats-eye sunglasses from the Martine Rose designers.

July 2018

Martine Rose from Mykita
Sporting the same arrow-straight top line and super flat profile of its predecessor, sunglass model SELINA is a refined version of the Nineties rave-inspired KITT.

A cropped cat-eye shape with slender metallic temples, SELINA features harmonious bicolour options such as Glossy Gold/ Rose.

Beyond the sophisticated lacquering however this standout pair of shades is still very much in the offbeat, cheeky spirit of the MYKITA + MARTINE ROSE creative partnership.

MARTINE ROSE was founded in 2007 as a men’s shirting brand, Martine Rose draws its inspiration from the experiential tension between individualism and belonging; exploring the potential of clothing to serve as cultural signifiers.

By exploring both personal and imagined histories, Martine Rose takes icons or motifs from the past and reimagines their use in the present – contexts are subverted, references collide, and the result is what makes each collection feel ‘offbeat’, and yet so ‘in tune’.

Volume, proportion, and fabrication are used in an equally dynamic way to blur the lines between the familiar and unconventional, questioning the former functionality or past
