Masunaga Takes Art Deco Inspiration

The new Masunaga titanium collection demonstrates style and true craftsmanship, and was inspired by the Art Deco scene of the 1920’s.  In a fun departure from the company’s standard of using model numbers for their frames these new frames are named after fashion icons and famous architects.   Today I am reviewing the new optical frames NY Life and Coco, and the new sunglass frame Van Alen (pictured right).  Van Alen was named for the architect who designed the Chrysler Building.  Coco was named for fashion icon Coco Chanel, and NY Life for the thriving architecture and fashion scenes of the 1920’s      NY Life and Van Alen (pictured below) are both brow-line frames for men and and they...

Creativity is a huge part...

Punk Him 2 by Face A Face

Rock n' Roll!  This week I'm showcasing Punk Him 2 by Face A Face. These sunglasses, with their red plaid and silver studs,  have an edgy style and energy fit for Dicky Barrett of The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Punk rock and ska all the way to the core, Punk Him 2 was created by actually layering plaid fabric in-between the front and back sections, made from zyl-acetate, giving the frame a depth and texture that just can't be matched with other techniques. While wearing the frame I noticed that it felt light and comfortable while still offering good coverage. The lens has a brown gradient tint with a backside anti-glare coating. I also felt like doing a stage-dive, but as...
