Introducing Tom Davies—made to measure eyewear!
When we at Eye Elegance decide to introduce a new collection, it has to be something really special. We know that you as our clients expect the very best from us, so we are truly excited to bring Tom Davies eyewear collection to you!
Tom studied Film and Television at the University of East Anglia before flying to China at age 21 with his backpack to work for a startup eyewear factory. Cutting his teeth on the factory floor, Tom helped build production from scratch whilst designing for other brands the world over.
Returning to London in 2000, Tom set up his couture business, creating spectacles and sunglasses the the rich and famous. Even at $7000 a frame, Tom’s waiting list sometimes ran to 12 months. Tom then decided to set up a Ready to Wear line, which was offered through top boutique opticians across the world. In 2008 Tom opened his own factory and now offers a full bespoke (made-to-measure) service through his global network of exclusive opticians.
We are proud to be included in this network, and now have the Tom Davies ready to wear collection on display—but that just where it starts. Every frame can be custom tailored to your face. We can change the frame measurements, temple style, frame finish, hinge style and color. Every Tom Davies frame can be ordered in every color he offers. We can make a temple longer, add nosepads to any acetate frame, or add depth to the lens to better accommodate a progressive.
We would love the opportunity to design a frame especially for you—it will even have your name engraved inside the temple! Stop in and see us soon!
Mark your calendars now—we will be presenting the entire 2012 Judith Leiber eyewear collection on Saturday, June 9 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m
. Our sales rep Richard will be here with his samples, so it will be your opportunity to see every Judith Leiber frame in every color. We look forward to seeing you there.
Blast from the Past!
Finally, I am adding a section to my blog. I will be featuring a classic frame from our archives, each one in brand new condition, from some of the great eyewear designers from the past. Today I am showing the Jean-Paul Gaultier 56-6103 sunglass. The Gaultier collection was famous for its’ innovative hinges and remarkable craftsmanship.
