Blake Kuwahara has been designing top-notch specs for the likes of Kata, Carolina Herrera and Coach but last year he launched a glasses collection under his own name, and EWG likes what it sees.
I've previously talked about the contrast between the shape of the outer frame and and the inner frame and it can create dramatic effects on the look of a pair of glasses. What Blake has done is added another dimension by producing frames which appear to have another frame inside, what he calls frame within a frame.
Great results as you can see here with Eames (top) and Corbu (above).
Handmade in Japan and oozing quality, Blake Kuwahara glasses will cost you around the $600 mark.

L.G.R, an eyewear brand renowned for its perfect acetates and knock-out lens-frame colour combinations. Here, however, I've picked out three black beauties, from the top – Reunion, Tripoli and Lola. Handmade in Italy, Zeiss lenses, say no more. Stocked all over the world.

When people ask me how much you should spend on glasses I usually say that if it seems like a really good price – for example "buy-one-get-one-free", "free lenses", "frames just $29.99" – then in all likelihood, it probably isn't. You get what you pay for
Just like with a decent watch, dishwasher or car, a more expensive pair of specs will most likely last longer and fit better.
So when my Dad told me about his pal Ash's new Andy Wolf Havana Gold frames, I gave a big thumbs up. They look great and I'm certain they'll last.
