As trendsetters, fashion’s early adopters, or steadfast guardians of all that is timeless: spectacle-makers have always been renowned for their talent. If their work is primarily about design, many of them have understood that this goes hand-in-hand with made-to-measure.
Designers are constantly bubbling with new ideas: change is their stock-in-trade. Creating involves taking risks, trying things out, and especially, breaking new ground. While some seek perfection in high-quality craftsmanship, others are consistently exploring new technologies.
A made-to-measure challenge
Made-to-measure is a challenge for makers, as every piece needs to be designed for a particular face and to suit the individual’s tastes. For brands, though, it is mainly an asset that helps them attract a discerning clientèle and offer this service for non-standard faces.
This involves an appointment to identify what you want and help you achieve the pair of glasses that best suits your face, as well as your innermost self. A feat of manufacturing where there are no shortcuts!
So what does that mean? No, not that your measurements will be halved, but that you’ll be able to choose your desired frame style from 40 designs and the Italian acetate that will adorn your eyes from 250 colors, and to adjust the size of your glasses to fit your face. All handmade by Schnuchel’s craftspeople. Made-to-measure has never been within such easy reach!
Whether they use luxury materials or follow tradition with acetate or metal, designer bespoke spectacle-makers are fearless. They break new ground to meet specific requirements, but are also forerunners in fashion and technology. Made-to-measure is no longer an extravagant choice!
