Factory 900 melting sunglasses

They're not really melting. But you can see that the FA-1111 from Japan's Factory 900 certainly creates a distinctive look as the exquisite acetate frame curves away from the face above and below the lens. This video, in Japanese, gives you a better idea...

The sunglasses have just won a Silmo d'Or, one of the most coveted prizes in eyewear. Also available as glasses.

One to watch: Suzy Glam glasses

Welcome to Suzy Glam, an extremely exciting new eyewear brand from the Netherlands. The detail on these shapes is superb, combining interesting bevels and curves into a great looking acetate frame.

Currently available in some great stores in Holland, Belgium and Germany and Switzerland, with more stockists coming soon we're sure.

Theo glasses in Rye - incomparably good

Theo glasses in Rye - incomparably good

Met this delightful woman in Rye, East Sussex, last weekend and simply had to ask if her specs were by Theo. Indeed they are. I'm not sure which model. She also told me where she purchased them in Brussels, so I'll be adding that to my list of places to buy cool glasses... more soon (honest!)
