We are nearing the end of the year, and if you have a Flexible Spending Account or a Health Savings Account, you may need to use that money before the end of the year, or risk losing it. What better way could there be than purchasing a fabulous new piece of eyewear with those pre-tax dollars? Looking for inspiration? How about one of these—one of our favorite frames from Face a Face, the Print 2, now in beautiful new colors!Or for the gentleman, you might consider this new limited edition frame from Cartier. Based on their popular “Duke” from the Collection Première, they have added a beautiful Platinum Plated detail on the temple for a truly unique look. This piece is only being done for the holiday season in a single run. We will only have two frames available, so call or stop in today to see it!I also would like to thank everyone who came to our théo eyewear event on December 1! We got to see some really amazing new pieces, and thanks to you it was a resounding success! If you missed it, we will definitely be having another théo show next December. Mark your calendars now for the Robert Marc trunk show on Saturday, February 9, 2013.
One of the things we are VERY thankful for is this Limited Edition buffalo horn piece from Cartier Eyewear! This rimless frame features the “Panthère De Cartier” in a striking spotted panther pattern. Produced by laminating different colors of horn together, using a unique dying technique and then hand-carving the panther out of the horn, this is a truly unique piece. Each frame is completely different from each other. This special edition has been produced in very limited quantities. We received two, and one has already been sold! Please stop in soon for your chance to purchase a real masterpiece from The House of Cartier!Théo Eyewear Event!Don’t forget that our annual Théo Eyewear Event is on Saturday, December 1 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Jessica from Théo will be here with the entire collection, including some things that even we have not seen yet! We will have food and wine, and we always have a great time at this show!! The next picture is a sneak peek of some of the new product—we have JUST begun receiving it, and it is spectacular! It features great colors (naturally!) and some new petite sizes for those hard-to-fit faces! See you there!!
The time has finally come! Lindberg’s award-winning buffalo horn eyewear collection has begun to arrive, and it is beautiful! Lindberg has created frame fronts made of laminated buffalo horn with titanium temples to create frames that are super-light and richly colored. Because horn is a natural material, each piece is truly unique—a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. We have received two pieces so far, and expect more in the near future.Also in buffalo horn is the limited edition “Club Premiere Edition” from Cartier. Cartier Paris commissioned only 750 pieces of this frame for the worldwide market, with only 50 frames allocated for the United States. The frame has a horn front and horn temples with a temple detail plaque that features a circular-grained metal—a detail that has never been used before in the eyewear collection. This limited edition will not last long—call the store for pricing and availability.Finally, a note on horn frames. Horn from Asian and African water buffalo is one of the most highly sought-after materials for luxury eyewear. It is lightweight (much lighter than plastics), polishes to a beautiful luster and is richly colored. If treated properly it will develop a rich patina with age and will stay beautiful for decades. Because it is a natural material, no two frames are exactly alike, creating a unique work of art for your face! All of our horn frames come with a care kit and instructions on keeping your frame in good condition.Also, be assured that no animals are slaughtered for their horns. The horn is a byproduct of the cattle industry, from animals that are raised as a source of food and leather production. Stop in soon to see one of these masterpieces!
Welcome to a new feature on our website! I will be using this space to give you product information, to let you know when new frame styles arrive and to make important announcements, as well as to share pictures from our buying trips and to let you know about upcoming events.***Don’t forget your FSA***If you have money set aside in a Flexible Spending Account, or Health Savings Account you may need to use that money by December 31 or lose it forever. Glasses or Prescription Sunglasses are a great way to use those dollars. We can accept your FSA debit card or provide you with an itemized receipt for submission. Can’t get an exam before the end of the year? No problem—we can hold your order for as long as you need and use those pre-tax dollars today!***New Look***We are almost complete in our remodel of the office interior. We have new carpet and a new paint job—we’re just waiting for a couple of new furniture pieces and the new look will be complete. Check this space in January for an announcement about a trunk show to celebrate the new year, our new website, our new look and a BRAND NEW FRAME LINE!***Cartier News***Speaking of new frames, Cartier has released the “Collection Première Cartier”. It is a “Première” collection because it is the first time Cartier uses acetate in its optical eyewear range. They are smart, sophisticated and beautiful—totally Cartier. “Première” because of its simple shapes, which revisit the sixties look with the discreet luxury of temples marked by unique tubular piston hinges. Each one-color or gradient-color frame is enhanced by décor in a platinum and gold or a ruthenium finish.Adieu until next month,Tim
