Don't worry: we did not sacrifice a Stradivarius for these wooden temples. That would be a bit blasphemous, even for us. But we did want to create something that looked like it. The Violinist features layered, FSC-certified wood of premium quality, as well as an avant-garde curved shape with slight oversizing. While you're looking at the stage, you might be missing the most beautiful artwork of all, in the orchestra pit. No, we have not sacrificed any Stradivarius for the hangers. That would be somewhat blasphemous. Nevertheless, the layered FSC veneer wood is absolutely premium quality. The Violinist is probably our most delicate frame since the «Milady» years ago, with whom he shares the beautifully shaped oval lenses and the classic Panto shape. But the frame itself has actually become even more filigree. At last an elegant alternative for petite ladies, who otherwise all too often had to make do with children's glasses.
For lovers of delicate shapes and urban trendsetters alike, the «hybrid» acetate models combine the best qualities of their various components. The front is made from beautifully patterned Italian acetate, the temples have been carved from richly textured wood or they are made from metal, often with subtle micro-engravings. The best of both worlds, with a keen eye for trendsetting and a soft spot for people on a tight budget.
