A perfect blend of California, Mexico and Kiwi style. As you can see the manager of Mexico Restaurant, Britomart, Leo Archer is a very well dressed gentleman. He wisely chose Garret Leight California Optical for his latest frames. This model comes with its own “clip on” sunglasses and is perfect for what we are sure is going to be a better Kiwi summer than last year!

The soft outline of Vinka Clement's new sunglasses, the "Uuksuu" by Oliver Goldsmith, offer a soft contrast to her tailored winter attire and frame her face perfectly. Anna Wintour famously said "you either know fashion or you don't” and we think even the editor of American Vogue might agree that, when it comes to sunglasses, Vinka got one up!

Pictured, Dianne Swann lead vocalist from the 'The Bads', wearing SALT honey tort. Dianne and fellow band member Brett Adams enjoyed their own successful musical careers before joining forces in London in the early 90’s to form “The Bads”. Dianne’s glasses are already being put to good use writing songs for their new album. If “So Alive” http://thebads.com/videos.html is anything to go by, we can’t wait to hear what they've been working on lately!

Abi Lucas pictured here simply “owning” this very refined crystal frame with horn acetate temples by SAMA. With its headquarters on Santa Monica Boulevard California and manufacturing 100% in Fukui Japan, SAMA is another example of the eyewear “heavenly marriage” that is California design/Japanese precision make. Abi is the owner of Abigails Essential Bodycare in Remuera www.abigailsbodycare.co.nz

Pictured here Mark Drummond owner of Drummond Flooring www.drummondflooring.co.nz, a company specialising in quality flooring solutions. When it came to selecting new eyewear, Mark needed a quality solution of his own and found it in the Martin & Martin, Paul. We think he wears this frame particularly well.

Don’t let the sunshine fool you, banker Ashton Kwan kindly agreed for us to take his photo outside on the coldest day of the year so far! Ashton chose Bevel, Oleg in crystal to add to his own “cool” factor and we are particularly pleased with the end result. We have permission to share that Ashton’s script is high -12 in his left eye and -14 in his right eye. Any of you who have a prescription like that will understand the challenges of making a pair of glasses that not only work perfectly but look great. This was a team effort, carefully chosen frame and top performance from Independent Lens Company in Christchurch who sourced the thinnest and lightest lenses possible from the States.

Anas Hafeedh is an Architect working on High St and just couldn’t resist this Frederic Beausoleil take on a bit of “Le Corbusier” style. Being interested in construction, Anas liked Beausoleil’s combination use of acetate and wood pulp to achieve a grain textured and durable frame. Anas we hope the unique design features of this frames will serve as daily inspiration for you to make your own mark on the world of modern architecture.
