Icons & Celebs in NYC

I fully intended to live blog as I was in New York this year, but there was simply not enough time.  So if you will forgive me I have recapped some of the highlights from my trip here. Day 1 :  Interiewing Pascal Jaulent On Video [caption id="attachment_16015" align="alignright" width="344"] Pascal Jaulent, Lee Miles, and Daniel Brunson[/caption] I flew into New York on Thursday afternoon and made it quickly to the Yotel.  I loved my stay there.  This is a very technologically advanced place.  Check in is done on a touch screen kiosk entirely without the use of humans.  A machine spits out your room key and a peice of paper with your room number.  Your room automatically turns on...

Tulsan of the Year

Our client and dear friend Dr. Steadman Upham was given the honorary distinction of being named Tulsan of the Year in the January 2015 issue of Tulsa People.  He was selected for his transformative work not only at the University of Tulsa, but also for improving the community of Tulsa in general through the True Blue Neighbors Project which is part of his legacy.  Since community giving is an important part of our culture at Hicks Brunson Eyewear we are particularly thrilled to see one of our clients being honored for his leadership role and his community service.  We also think his taste in eyewear is quite dapper.

Bill Gates Wears Stewart by Blac

[caption id="attachment_15162" align="alignright" width="500"] Bill Gates: Image source[/caption] I recently spotted Bill Gates in the media wearing one of my favorite frames.  Gates is pictured  here wearing Stewart which is a titanium and carbon fiber design from a great independent eyewear collection called Blac.  Blac is made by Bellinger House of Denmark.  Clause Bellinger, a Formula 1 racing fan, designed the world's first all carbon fiber frame inspired by the McLaren's 1981 auto body.  I love the Blac eyewear collection because the frames are very modern looking and very light weight which makes them oh so comfy.  I wrote more on what makes the Blac collection so special, which you can read about by clicking here.

Frame of the week: Brechin Sunglasses by Leisure Society

I love this creation from Shane Baum for Leisure Society.  The style pays tribute to the iconic Ray Ban Olympian from 1965, which was worn by Peter Fonda in Easy Rider.  More recently Jon Hamm as Don Draper wore a similar look in  Mad Men.  The Brechin takes this legendary look to the level of luxury.  Brechin is made of pure Japanese titanium and plated in 18k gold as shown below.  The laser etched metal decor is exquisite.  I think this is a must have for the sophisticated and stylish man or woman of the modern era.  Leisure Society is the newest collection available at Hicks Brunson Eyewear.
