The Making of an Orgreen Frame

Danish eyewear brand Orgreen craft beautiful titanium frames that reflect the minimal design and pristine details that are so essentially Scandinavian. This video shows just how many man hours go into making a single Orgreen frame; 4-6 months with over 100 processes to achieve a fully-formed frame.

Here are just some of the Orgreen frames to be found in store...

Glasses of the Week: Flawless Two-Tone

We love how Allie Drummond looks in her new Claire Goldsmith glasses. This frame is one of the London designer's more ambitious styles, being both bolder and two-tone, but they are perfectly proportioned. Allie works as a nanny and these glasses are both fun and friendly, and sure to be a hit with the kids.

His & Hers Titanium

Tonia & Ross Drake looked fantastic in their new glasses when they came in to have them fitted this week.

Tonia wears her navy Orgreen frames beautifully. This Danish design is modern yet feminine, and the matte blue finish is subtly striking.

As a paediatrician, Ross wanted a frame that is fine, lightweight, stylish - and friendly! His Zero G frame from Los Angeles is the perfect match. Handcrafted in Japan from a single sheet of flexible strip titanium, these glasses have no screws or hinges making them tough as well as extremely light.

We hope Ross and Tonia are very happy with their new frames.

Feline Fine with Viva

If you picked up a copy of The Herald's Viva magazine yesterday you will have seen our beautiful Oliver Goldsmith cat-eye sunglasses featured as part of a feline-inspired fashion spread. This vintage design originated in Notting Hill in 1959 and is as striking today as it was then. Thanks for the mention Viva, the Olive Tortoiseshell look stunning.

Glasses of the Week: Graphic Design

It was a real pleasure helping Leah Sullivan pick out her new Claire Goldsmith glasses. Leah was torn between two colours in this design but the Wakame - black with tortoiseshell detailing at the temples and on the inside - won out! 
This brand new frame for 2015 is a beautiful example of the designer's move towards a finer and more contoured aesthetic. We hope they help Leah as she studies graphic design at Youbee.
