BLACKFIN ONE – New Fall 2019 OPTICAL COLLECTION

October 2019

Style, elegance and personality define the new Fall 2019 Blackfin One optical frame collection. Color is the common thread that runs through all the styles, creating exquisite interplays of hues on the quintessential titanium material. The collection encompasses men’s frames, unisex and decidedly feminine styles – classic yet subtly surprising designs, heightened by innovative technical details, superior craftsmanship and absolute quality.

Instilled with the brand’s DNA, Blackfin One is the label that identifies the main collection.

Bayou

Among the innovations is the panto-inspired Bayou, with its generous almost-round frame and ultra-flexible beta titanium bridge and temples. The color palette ranges from the more masculine – dark blue paired with bright red, black or midnight blue – to the more feminine shades of blush pink or midnight blue combined with magenta.



Winter Harbor

The same technical detail appears on the titanium welded bridge of the men’s Winter Harbor, where the sculpted lines and bold depth of the frame are emphasized by black outlined in lime green, dark blue outlined in bright red, midnight blue, olive green or black.



Lynn Haven

The range of styles with bas-relief front includes Lynn Haven, whose rounded rims and contrasting, slightly elongated top rim create a graceful feminine shape, played up by the color options: matte mocha/magenta, polished silver/champagne gold, pink blush/blue-green, polished silver/black or dark blue/burgundy red.




Bay side

Bayside
echoes the same elongated top rim, but with more squared rims, emphasized by a bold pastel color palette for the contrasting inner and outer frame in Venetian red/plum, dark blue/turquoise, midnight blue/pink, magenta/plum or all black.




Valdez

The rounded silhouette of Valdez is offset by the straight bridge and two slightly angled points that interrupt the circular continuity. Full-on color reigns again, this time in shades of midnight blue/gunmetal gray, bright blue/gunmetal gray or black/champagne gold.


BD8: A New sustainable Eyewear Material against the world's plastic pollution

October 2019


Bio Lens BD8“BD8 – Bio Plastics” is a 100% bio-degradable plastics which can be naturally broken into carbon, water and bio mass. In a world where approximately 8 million pieces of plastic pollution find their way into the oceans every day, “BD8 – Bio Plastics” offers an eco-friendly solution: millions or even billions of eyewear and other products can be made of a bio-degradable plastics which can be absorbed by the organisms and enrich the soil on decomposition. “BD8 – Bio Plastics” is lightweight, durable, crystal clear, hypoallergenic and good for any colors, designs or patterns.

BD8 can be used to realize not only eco-friendly frames but also a full range of other eyewear products aiming to build a more sustainable future of the eyewear industry.

 

One of the BD8 products is “Bio Polybag”, a bio-degradable plastic eyewear bag which can be naturally broken down in 5 years. With a high tensile and impact strength, this crystal clear product comes as the best alternative to oxo-degradable plastic eyewear bags, as it can completely biodegrade into carbon, water and bio mass without leaving any plastic fragments behind.

Another product deriving from BD8 is “Bio Lens”, a revolutionary 100% bio-degradable lens that can be naturally decomposed into landfill, leaving behind carbon, water and organic matter.

Bio Lens will start to bio-degrade in 10+ days, and takes five years to biodegrade in soil. Besides offering supreme comfort and performance, this sustainable lens meets optical standard, features high impact resistance and can be used for both clear and sun lenses. It can be adapted to any styles, shapes, curvatures and sizes and matched with any kinds of coating. 100% UV protection is granted for the sun version.

Scotch and Soda, new eyewear collection

September 2019

Scotch and SodaStaying true to their authentic culture and inherent curiosity, Scotch & Soda hunt high and low for unique treasures to influence and inspire their storytelling.

The brand’s design philosophy is to surprise and delight while sharing the love for discovery, and you will find unexpected charms in this debut eyewear offering with plenty of choices to cherish.

The Amsterdam born brand which began as a menswear label, has since become a globally recognised name, extending to womenswear and accessories, and now boasts over 210 stand-alone stores worldwide.

Each shop celebrates the local nuances whilst remaining recognisably Scotch & Soda.

The debut eyewear collection comprises sunglasses and optical frames and is made up of three key ranges - Essential reliable pieces with a twist, Aspirational models reflecting the brand’s look and feel, and unique Pinnacle treasures.

S & S VegasVEGAS SS5005





S & S FultonFULTON SS7004





S & S Keoni
KEONI LIMITED EDITION SS5002






WOMEN’S SUNGLASS RANGE


Sitting within the Essential line, VEGAS SS5005 is an exploration of colour. Oversized butterfly lenses make a real statement, with multiple graduated tones and reflections resembling a hot summer sundown.

Tonal colour pops, such as gemstone nose pads and matching end tips, continue the colour story and are balanced by the minimalist metal framing in gold and copper.

Crafted from acetate, FULTON SS7004 comes with a geo cat-eye shape and lightly coloured lenses making it the perfect alternative shades to wear all day long. The core wire is visible as a detail on the crystal-clear temples which extend into a tonal marble or confetti-inspired eclectic pattern. Signing off the style is the Scotch & Soda branding and the bottle-like caps on the end tips.

A delicate frame, KEONI LIMITED EDITION SS5002 is crafted from fine metal with epoxy filled top brows- a subtle and refined additional feature. Available in the women’s Pinnacle range, colouration throughout is tonal with corresponding temple tips and opal-gemstone nose pads. The natural eye shape and sleek design make it a sophisticated style in a wearable shape.


MEN’S SUNGLASS RANGE


S & S Kinney
Part of the Essential range, KINNEY SS8004 is a contemporary, easy-to-wear style with good old-fashioned

KINNEY SS8004 elements. (left) A timeless tort frame encases the slightly mirrored lenses and a bespoke core wire embellishes
the bottle green temples.

Quality metal end caps talk into the vintage classic detailing, with the brand name heat stamped in gold for a dapper finishing touch.
Reminiscent of sunsets at the beach and tropical vibes, KEONI LIMITED EDITION SS8003 from the Aspirational offering comes in soft hues with tonal lenses. The frame itself is very fine and lightweight with milled detailing over the top of the lenses and a Terrazzo Palazzo marble-inspired colourful touch on the end tips.

The soft champagne version comes with a limited-edition cloth, featuring the exclusive Keoni print.

RichmondS & S Kinney
With all the markings of the cool and sophistication of a bygone era, RICHMOND SS6002 sits within the brands
Pinnacle range.

Initial inspiration for this story comes from the intricate detailing on the metal door handles
KEONI LIMITED EDITION SS8003 from the Scotch & Soda shops.

This was the starting point for a richer brand story – the Evil Eye iconography - which manifests as engraved details on nose pads and the temples with sunburst patterns. The lenses are graduated, with a complementary tonal acetate top bar for an extra modern twist

OPTICAL RANGE

For every day optical frames, LAMBERMONT SS2002 for men has a fine metal structure which is both classic and
LAMBERMONT SS2002 contemporary with its artfully crafted end pieces. The Evil Eye story has inspired the intricate diamond cut
details from the sun burst engravings along the temple tips through to the discreet Scotch & Soda logo on the end tips.

Similarly, HALLE SS1003 for women plays with this sunburst theme on its temples but also includes coin edge detailing on the front of the reverse half-rimless angular frame. Here again the gemstone nose pads characterise the style for a feminine edge.

S & S Neustadt
A unisex model, NEUSTADT SS2001(left) is a round metal frame with a simple aesthetic and eclectic styling. Raised double rivets to the top are a sophisticated addition, with coin ridged detailing all around the front and additional engraved logo details on the metal work. Colour pops on the temple tips then work as a discreet and luxurious fashion element.

All styles are not what they first seem, encouraging the consumer to travel along the exploration trail with them.

SPECTRALIS software adds macular reference database and deviation maps functionality

September 2019

Spectralis

SPECTRALIS Glaucoma Module Premium Edition (GMPE) customers having installed the SPECTRALIS release 6.12.1 can now benefit from the discriminative power of the macular reference database with the addition of thickness deviation maps for retina, retinal nerve fibre, ganglion cell and inner plexiform layers.



This feature is free of charge to all SPECTRALIS owners with GMPE Module.

The Deviation Maps update offers:

• Thickness deviation maps, which highlight whether the thickness measurements of each retinal layer are within or outside of normal limits in comparison to a reference database, making the regions and extent of structural thickening or thinning clearly discernible.
• New thickness maps with a perceptually uniform colour scale that make changes in retinal thickness more easily perceived by the human eye in comparison to the traditional hue colour scale.
• Classification chart with values derived from a Garway-Heath 6 sector grid, accurately anatomically aligned on the macular according to the individual anatomy of each eye using the Anatomic Positioning System (APS).

“The comparison of thickness measurements with the reference database enhances the diagnostic value of thickness maps and improves the visualisation of structural defects consistent with glaucoma”, explains Tim Cole, Clinical Affairs Manager, Heidelberg Engineering UK. “Heidelberg Engineering is well renowned for having revolutionised glaucoma diagnostics after bursting onto the scene with the Heidelberg Retina Tomograph (HRT) in 1999.

The launch of Deviation Maps, and the Glaucoma Hood Report earlier in 2019, shows a continued commitment by the company to developing innovative and clinically validated diagnostic solutions for glaucoma”.

Contact Heidelberg Engineering to find out how to enable Deviation Maps functionality or to enquire about upgrading your SPECTRALIS with Glaucoma Module Premium Edition

Helmut Lang at Mykita
MYKITA and HELMUT LANG have collaborated on the design of two new eyewear models, HL001 and HL002, to be released in spring 2020. The eyewear debuted at the HELMUT LANG SS20 runway show during New York Fashion Week on September 7th, 2019.

MYKITA and HELMUT LANG are both known for designs that challenge the status quo and elevate functional elements into intriguing signature details.

HL001 and HL002, developed by the MYKITA design team, headed by founder Moritz Krueger, and HELMUT LANG Creative Director of ready-to-wear, Mark Thomas, introduce a new formula for the wraparound sunshield made of four individual lenses. Contrasting lens colors on both models, including neon pink and yellow variations, reflect the major color and material themes of the SS20 HELMUT LANG collection.

HL001 feels futuristic and forward with its straight top line and double bridge creating an angular, sharp look. Inspired by the iconic aviator silhouette the HL002 has a more fluid, curvilinear impression.

Both models are handcrafted at the MYKITA HAUS in Berlin.

Stepper 97164It’s easy to see why the new SI-97164 from STEPPER is a star performer. This sparkling addition to their rimless offering has so much to offer those looking for eye-catching glamour and comfort in a frame.

Plos fro AuraIntroducing the AURA collection – optical frames that take the concept of cross-contamination to its purest expression, where the elements blend naturally, achieving the perfect balance of techno-glamour that breathes life into true objects of design, in authentic Blackfin style.

Scenes of Life with EMILE & ROSE: A new life begins at 30!

July 2019

#fromokowithlove

#scenesoflife at #oko

EmileAfter the story of the two best friends #BFF #STELLA & #NIKITA in Episode 1, we now get to meet in Episode 2 #EMILE & #ROSE #OKObyOKO.

The pitch? A new life begins at 30 ! Loving and good in their lives, this couple of thirties celebrates their move together, this is their first apartment! We wish them all the best for a life full of colors and joy!

Emile (Rt.)... For him, colored, designer style, elegant, with neat details and signed from the mark to the turtle. This frame entirely made of acetate will of course delight fans of glasses that have character, style and want to assert themselves! « Créateur », yes, but accessible to all!

RoseRose (rt.)… For her, floral inspiration and superposition of petals for this fresh, spring-colored frame with acidic colors that combines different materials - acetate and steel - to create an unexpected result. This trend towards the mixing of materials, very fashionable in the eyewear sector, is a creative process that creates a new aesthetic language offering pleasant contrasts, both visual and tactile. The play of light and shadow - formed by the shifting and superimposition of hand-polished acetate plates - gives relief and volume creating a more generous, more open, softer and more feminine form. With Rose, OKO loves you a little, a lot, passionately, to madness!

And there, we realize the obvious: everything is consciously and elegantly offset and offbeat, as if the brand gave life to its ideas and its creations by thinking only of one thing: allowing the wearer to reveal oneself and to dare to display his personality.

NIRVAN JAVAN Metal Eyewear Collection for a stylish summer

July 2019

Summer is synonymous with relaxing, having fun and parties. Why not see it with style? NIRVAN JAVAN, the Swiss brand with the same name as its designer, Nirvan Javan, proposes a selection of metal models for its BECAUSE I CAN optical range and SHADE 19 sunglass range as the must-have accessory for the hottest season of the year.

The purity of the lines, the high quality of the materials and the contemporary styling make the metal models the perfect accessory to bring out the natural beauty of those who wear them.

BECAUSE I CAN is the campaign slogan that accompanied the collection launch, and which is inspired by the designer's story: everybody should be motivated to live their dreams and believe in themselves. An intense pursuit of perfection dedicated to all those who want to live a contemporary style for a timeless elegance.

The range is available in four colours, all in an opaque finish: gold, rose gold, silver and black

OPTICAL COLLECTION

Man: NJE 25 (RG1)

Women: NJE 22 (SR1)

NJE 22 (SRI)

A traditionally masculine frame appears here in a new, elegant and refined interpretation thanks to a choice of colours ranging from silver rose and rose gold to black and gold.



The SHADES 19 sunglasses use Carl Zeiss lenses with anti-reflective coating and every model includes a polarised version. The colours chosen are in line with the brand’s identity, starting with the simple and elegant through to lighter, more fashion effects. Every single frame has its own combination of lenses thus guaranteeing a perfect stylistic balance.

BLACKFIN – Perfection In The Details

July 2019

Blackfin Tilting Nose PadsThe difference is in the details: Blackfin adds distinctive elements to its line of prescription eyewear frames and sunglasses. Starting with the July collection, all the styles will come with the ultra-new tilting nose pads made of medical grade PVC, a totally hypoallergenic material that covers a signature strip – with the brand’s iconic fish logo – made of transparent resin upon which, for some versions, a layer of gold or palladium has been deposited. In addition to having a more modern and elegant design, the new mobile nose pads ensure greater comfort, adapting themselves to the shape of the nose. Image:Right Tilting Nosepads.

Another innovation is in the design of the Swordfish temple tips. (below left)

The company’s patented design makes it possible to quickly, easily and accurately shorten the temples by 5 or 10 mm.

The new rubber temple tips – a material designed to adapt more easily to body temperature (warm in the winter and cool in the summer) when in contact with the skin – are thicker to ensure a more comfortable and ergonomic fit, while at the same time preventing the eyewear from slipping forward.

Blackfin Swordfish Tips
And, to put excellent customer service in the hands of all opticians, we designed a kit containing a special pair of pliers for the removal and replacement of the nose pads and a custom-formed plate for bending the temple tips, which makes it possible to return the temples to their original curvature after they have been shortened.

Blackfin Laser EngravingBlackfin also uses state-of-the-art technology in the less conspicuous details. Information located inside the temples bearing the model code, technical details and any customizations, is laser engraved in brilliant colors, using a 20W laser fiber power source. (right)




This ensures unparalleled quality, compared to classic screen-printing methods and adds a touch of style that makes each pair of frames unique.


Because, the journey to perfection, although fleeting, is mapped in every tiny detail.

Lightweight frames from Stepeer
Beta-Titanium has so much to offer eyewear. Its inherent characteristics deliver benefit after benefit that are so in line with the needs of the wearer.

Modern rimless styles have won many converts with an uncluttered and free field of vision that can seem like there’s nothing holding the lenses in place.

‘The combination of Beta-Titanium with contemporary, minimalist rimless designs has created a category of frames with remarkable properties and appeal,’ explains Peter Reeve, Managing Director, STEPPER (UK) Limited.

‘Their feather-light weight and delicate aesthetics appeal belies an inner strength, toughness and durability. These frames are surprisingly forgiving, even for the clumsiest of wearers.’

The SI-96882 is just one of the comprehensive collection of modern, minimalist rimless styles available from STEPPER. Designers working alongside manufacturing engineers create subtle tweaks and modifications resulting in a simple look that also allows for the individuality of the wearer to shine through.



A key skill of the STEPPER development team is the ability to produce colours that are on-trend and also work across skin tones to offer something that really suits the wearer. The SI-96882 is available in a choice of three colourways: satin silver, satin ruby and satin purple.

Personality and style with long lasting looks and weighing just 4.6g ensure the SI-96882 delivers day-long comfort.

Scenes of Life with NIKITA & STELLA

Scenes of Life with NIKITA & STELLA
BFF « Best Friends Forever »

NikitaA decidedly feminine look for these young women who are followers of a contemporary and trendy style. A real duo of best friends in glasses Nikita (right) and Stella (bottom right).

Nikita... for active women, for women of character #WOMANPOWER #GIRLPOWER in the ‘Qui Suis-je’ collection. Beautiful combination of steel and acetate structured by a feminine design and in tune with the times. We remember of course the eponymous film that started from the idea of creating a female character called Nikita - according to the song of the same name by Elton John. You remember? This is the story of a woman fighting for her own survival. A woman's story. A survival story to better rebuild.

StellaStella… still in the ‘Qui Suis-je’ collection, generous, rounded shape and perfectly proportioned curves for this well balanced and well combined frame. It mixes metal and acetate with elegance and character. A silhouette and textures combined to create an unexpected style - neither futuristic nor vintage, but simply contemporary. We like: the two small cat ears suggested subtly on each side of the frame.

And there, we realize the obvious: everything is consciously and elegantly offbeat, as if the brand gave life to its ideas and its creations by thinking only of one thing: allowing the wearer to reveal oneself and to dare to display his or her personality.
