Memories in EG Sight...
EG's mission is to provide our customers with the best quality, fashion forward eyewear from around the globe. This is why the Eyewear Gallery team travels to eyewear shows wherever emerging and trend-setting eyewear artists are showcasing their latest eyewear masterpieces. We thought we'd take a moment to share with you some of our fondest memories of the frames, the artists and the places that make EG your eyewear boutique!
We first meet the beautiful and talented Caroline Abram in Paris at SILMO, 2013 and instantly fell in love with the fresh, feminine design of her frames. It wasn't long until we understood the frames were but a mirror of the artist herself. Seeing her again in Milan at MIDO, 2014, again in Paris at SILMO, 2015 and New York City, Vision Expo, 2016 and 2017 was always such a treat. The Eyewear Gallery is honored to be one of the first to bring her Parisian inspired frames to America back in 2013. Her designs continue to inspire us.
Speaking of MIDO in Milano, 2014 we could never forget the ecologically sustainable frames of designer Stefano Del Noce. His frames were bringing back tinted sunglasses before tinted sunglasses knew they were coming back! We love these lightweight, funky frames as much today as we did at first sight. In fact, we loved them so much that we were the first boutique in the US to carry his line. Although, we highly doubt we were the last!
The Italian Eyewear Exhibition in Miami, 2015 was full of design surprises. One of our faves was meeting the founder of VANNI EYEWEAR, Giovanni Vitaloni http://vanniocchiali.com/en/ and his associate Luca. We are still so honored to be one of eighteen U.S. boutique owners to be invited along with sixty Latin American and eight Canadian proprietors.
And if that wasn’t enough the EG travel team caught up with the Mucelli Family and their trendsetting Les Pièces Uniques collection, handmade in Milano.
Did someone mention SILMO 2013? Dr. Dawn could not stop wearing her leopard-print frames compliments of Tom Cody, winner of SILMO's prestigious "Best of the Best," award! Their lightweight style never dragged her down in the avenues of Paris. Quite the opposite; they lifted her up!
"Traveling for fabulous frames is a tough job but somebody has to do it", said no one ever! The EG style team loves bringing back fashion forward frames from wherever fashionable frames are happening. Stay tuned for our next fabulous frame adventure and pop into The Eyewear Gallery today to SEE our exciting line of unique frames!
