Exclusive Eyewear

Do you worry about wearing the same frames as your neighbor? If you’re wearing designer eyewear, you probably already look pretty unique. But you could surely look even more unique by choosing a brand that emphasizes limited productions. Choosing these brands also means choosing quality.

Exclusive glasses from Paris to Hollywood

Exclusivity is a quality that eyeglass designer Jacques Marie Mage cultivates. Born in France, he now lives in Hollywood, but the brand is quite removed from the ostentation of this city. The frames are always ultra limited edition, and each pair is handmade in Japan by craftsmen concerned with detail, and with ethical methods of production that respect the quality of the materials used. A touch of luxury infuses these contemporary frames, often look to the past for inspiration—Jacques Marie Mage looks to the glasses worn by icons like Bob Dylan and Pier Paolo Pasolini.

An unprecedented color palette

Acetate frames by Italian designer Piero Massaro

One must mention Italian designer Piero Massaro when contemplating eyeglass designers who favor micro-productions. Limited edition lines of about a hundred copies are the norm for his brand. Each precious frame produced in the workshops of this Sicilian designer is numbered. Each model represents the unique style of Piero Massaro—colored, imprinted with the Sicilian and Venetian milieu amongst which it is created. The colors are particularly intense due to the use of the acetate, which intensifies each shade.

Another lover of both intense colors and exclusivity: Jérémy Tarian. At the heart of his latest collection, the Paris-based designer of Armenian origin has arranged unique colors, produced in his laboratory through successive careful mixtures. For this designer, quality—color intensity in particular—is a privilege, employing all the talent of the artisans and colorists who make each frame exceptional. He uses original colors as well as personalized and rare materials like vintage acetates in creating his glasses. The rarity of these acetates necessitates a low production volume. In fact, some models have only 30 or 40 copies, so if you love what you see, make sure you get them before they are gone!
