Introducing sustainable eyewear initiatives since 2019, Eyespace’s award-winning eco-portfolio presented brand new designer launches at MIDO, alongside the British company’s flagship collections. Range Rover Eyewear showcased a state-of-the-art offering, developed in close collaboration with the company’s world-renowned design team.

Enhanced engineering extends throughout, with the pairing of high-performance Japanese beta-titanium alongside Mazzucchelli acetate. Highlights include an inline glazing system and titanium construction – which offers natural flex, is lightweight and comfortable to wear. With today’s most discerning frame wearers in mind, the collection takes considered design cues from both the technical aesthetics and exceptional luxury of the Range Rover design portfolio. Also making its anticipated MIDO debut, Land Rover Eyewear premiered a new phase of sustainable styles that minimise environmental impact.

Frank and Lucie is launching a new collection of readers. Frank is a designer of eyeglasses. For many companies, he invented all kinds of top models, but nobody needs to know that. And now he has made a beautiful collection of reading glasses for his wife Lucie because Lucie complained about the offer, and not only she, her friends also complained. When Frank was busy, he realized that it is even more fun to design a collection of reading glasses that he can also wear. The material is very important to Frank; the choice for the rich acetate was therefore made quickly.

He drew on his years of experience as a designer for the models. He likes vintage, but never too fussy, always the atmosphere of the past is combined with the technology of tomorrow. That’s why he decided to fit each of the frames with amazing blue light filtering lenses. Read more about this amazing brand on TEF Magazine or visit their website. H Halston Eyewear.

While still maintaining all the benefits of Glacier PLUS™, Glacier Expression™ has revolutionized the definition of anti-reflective coatings.

Until now. Glacier Expression™ is a high quality anti-reflective coating with an amazing signal to noise ratio that allows wearers to See Better, Look Better, Feel Better and Connect Better! A technological breakthrough, this all-new AR coating raises the signal-to-noise ratio—a balance that defines how well a wearer sees in relation to nearby visual noise—and lowers that noise level.

Danshari Presents New Collection By Alain Miklitarian | The Optical Journal.

It’s called Dansharian and it bears the signature of Alain Miklitarian – the creative genius who revolutionized the concept of eyewear. It is the new and exclusive collection created by DANSHARI, the brand Made in Japan that takes inspiration from the Zen philosophy and the concepts of essentiality, minimalism, and design. In Armenia – land of origin of the designer – the suffix “IAN” indicates paternity, therefore “son of …”. Hence Dansharian, a brand born from the collaboration between Danshari and Alain Miklitarian: minimalism meets genius. A collection that combines style and simplicity, conceived and designed by Alain with great passion. The colors are inspired by Armenia’s nature, climate, and culture. The shades blend naturally with lavender, gold, enamels, and earthy colors: neon green with rusty reds, greys with blacks, and champagnes, a dive into the colorful Armenian culture.

The fronts are sober, and classic, with sculpted volumes and corners. About Danshari.
