Woman On Mode Mymuse By Oko Paris®

Having received overwhelming support until now for its sunglasses’ women’s models, the brand MYMUSE by OKO Paris® has also being developing a line dedicated to optics for women with a big W, where elegance and refinement get together united to give birth to magnificent acetate and combined acetate/metal jewels. This women’s optical collection has been developed and created in the in-house design studios of the group – just like the men’s optical line.

It’s a fashion and glamorous chapter which gets written in the history of OKO EYEWEAR Group – in the art of proposing frames that are always more astounding, always more unexpected and always more beautiful.

Ese’s Exces Eyewear Diversifies With Eight New Styles

Eastern States Eyewear has announced the release of eight new ophthalmic styles within its Exces Eyewear collection. The collection sees a vast mix of materials. In plastic, there are three new styles featuring a diverse range of color schemes that sport a mix of several animal print laminates or clever fades. In metal, there are two stainless steel styles in petite sizes (either a 48 or 49 eye). Both feature architectural temple shaping and two toned color schemes providing for a bright, youthful look. Additionally, the collection premieres three “Montage” styles. “Montage” frames feature a thin stainless steel skeleton with an epoxy “skin”. This coating provides a soft texture as well as a wonderfully subtle touch of added dimension – looking at each sku closely reveals faint striations in each color. “Our goal with Exces is provide premium design and quality – two hallmarks of what Eastern States Eyewear is known for – with amazing value” explained Jason Shyer, ESE Managing Director. “Exces allows consumers to have the experience of wearing a designer frame but at a far lower cost.” For more information, contact Eastern States Eyewear at 800-645-3710 or on the web at www.eseyewear.com. ...

This Winter, Nike Vision launches the brand’s first goggle line, a collection of innovative eyewear that combines comfort and functional performance. Encompassing thoughtful design and innovative style, the launch will be comprised of three different styles: The Command, The Khyber and The Fade. The Command in Black/Volt and Khyber in Volt will both feature Transitions Adaptive Goggle Lenses, the result of a partnership between Nike Vision and Transitions Optical. Specifically created for snow, the lenses darken and lighten in response to the sunlight and weather situation at any given time. Nike Transitions Adaptive Goggle Lenses are also color optimized to enhance critical terrain details, increase depth perception and filter out glare. Additionally, each goggle purchased comes with a bonus lens. “Our goal is, and always has been, to serve the needs of the athlete, so it was an organic extension of our product line to foray into the goggle market,” said Steve Tripi, Marketing Director at Marchon, Nike Vision’s licensing company. “Our design team worked hand-in-hand with our athletes to ensure the product was truly functional, yet still aesthetically pleasing. We’re fully confident that the Nike Vision customer will be pleased with the results.” See below for additional information on the forthcoming styles: THE COMMAND A sleek frame shape designed for a larger fit, the Command provides comfort, adaptable performance and maximum peripheral vision. It features a six-base injected-polycarbonate spherical lens to ensure a wide field of view, combined with 100% UV protection and an anti-fog treatment to keep vision clear. The frame’s Engineered Durable Water Repellant mesh enhances airflow and repels exterior moisture, preventing fog for best-possible visibility. (Left to right: Command in Black/Volt; Command in Dark Raisin/Magnet Grey; Command in Photo Blue/Fierce Green; Command in Black/Black) THE KHYBER A wide-open field of view meets comfort thanks to a flexible polyurethane frame, built for a glove-like medium/large fit.

Wiley X®-Sponsored Driver One of Just Four Racers Left With Chance to  Be Crowned Champion Next Week in Florida

Wiley X®-Sponsored Driver One of Just Four Racers Left With Chance to Be Crowned Champion Next Week in Florida

Wiley X®-sponsored NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick® dominated the track at the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500 at Phoenix International Speedway on Sunday, November 9. While the victory gave Harvick a season sweep at the track and was his fourth win in his last five races there, this victory was particularly rewarding for another very important reason. By taking Sunday’s checkered flag under the bright Phoenix sun, Harvick survived the Chase for the Sprint Cup Eliminator Round and will move on to next week’s Chase for the Sprint Cup championship race at Florida’s Homestead-Miami Speedway. Four drivers — Harvick, Joey Logano (also sponsored by Wiley X), Denny Hamlin and Ryan Newman — will compete for the Sprint Cup title. The highest finishing driver at Homestead-Miami next Sunday will be crowned champion and claim the 2015 series title. Dozens of drivers begin each season as legitimate contenders in the Chase for the Sprint Cup, a prize that requires sustained success, amazing focus and admittedly, a little bit of luck. After a series of Qualifying and Eliminator Round races, the field is now down to four racers, representing the best of the best. “This is so exciting, that after a long, thrilling season of racing it all comes down to one final challenge to earn the Cup and the title of champion,” said Wiley X Co-Owner Myles Freeman, Jr. “We’re very proud to have two of our Team Wiley X drivers among the final four — and you can bet we’ll be rooting them on next weekend. As far as we’re concerned, they’re both champions for performing so well over a long and grueling racing season,” added Freeman. The relationship between top NASCAR racers like Harvick, Logano, Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth, Greg Biffle and others is a natural one. These drivers depend on Wiley X’s sharp vision and high-velocity protection, whether they’re out on the track, on the highway or enjoying outdoor activities. Wiley X sunglasses meet stringent ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety standards, providing occupational-grade protection for all active lifestyle enthusiasts. Wiley X is the only premium sunglass brand with this level of vision protection in every pair of glasses it makes — a big reason why the company is a leading provider of protective eyewear systems to U.S. military, law enforcement, professional fishermen and others who perform in challenging conditions. In addition, almost every Wiley X model is Rx-ready, making Wiley X eyewear the perfect, no-compromise solution for people who want the style and protection benefits of Wiley X with prescription vision. Wiley X DIGIFORCE™ digital Rx lens technology provides wearers with superior prescription accuracy and clarity, along with the widest possible field of vision.

Look & feel! The Fascination of Carbon, Titanium and SPX+

Rimless, light and dynamic. Silhouette and designer Gerhard Fuchs have pulled out all the stops with the rimless Carbon T1: With absolute technical sophistication, the sporty design of the temple made of high-tech titanium and SPX+, and the extremely fine texture of the carbon fiber translate into a one-of-a-kind experience. The innovative resin-backed carbon fiber weave is an in-house development by Silhouette. According to how the light falls, it shimmers in either black-matte or grey-shiny, emphasizing the carbon element on the faceted temple that lends the exclusive look of the Silhouette Carbon T1. Rich, intensive and impressive colors accentuate the sporty, dynamic design of the 4 models of the Carbon T1: Whatever your personal syle, the Carbon T1 embodies like no other eyewear the discerning demands in high-tech and high-touch of an active, urbane lifestyle.

Bold Frames for Big Drama New Dsquared2’s Eyewear Collection

Bold Frames for Big Drama New Dsquared2’s Eyewear Collection

The glamorous fallen star wrapped in her magnificent clothes dashes towards the doors of the institution, her oversized sunglasses shielding her eyes from the paparazzi flashes. A wardrobe of beautiful things earned from the dizzying heights of fame accompanies her to a spell in a rehabilitation clinic – the inspiration behind Dsquared2’s eyewear collection for fall winter 2014. Like her precious jewels, eyewear is an essential accessory. A love affair with gems is transposed in the collection’s two designs, where sparkling stones embellish the styles’ brows and temples. Direct from the high-octane glamour of Dsquared2’s runway, the statement making Ophelia design is a limited edition sunglasses model. Decorated with leaf shaped fronds of jumbo jewels in smoked topaz and crystal hues, these oversized square rounded lenses come in black or Havana frames with black colored lenses. Taking their shape from a bold cat eye, the Elisabeth design has a distinctive look through its wide winged feline frames, emboldened with crystals in the top corners of the brow. Accentuating their feminine allure, a romantic cursive Dsquared2 metallic logo is appliqued on the temples. Their unique look is defined with five diverse color combinations of frames, jewels and lenses. The Elisabeth also shines in its more pared back optical version of black frames embedded with clear crystals. Retro design also influences Tanabe, Dsquared2’s men’s optical frame for fall winter 2014. With their squared shape and a clean and bold profile, these frames resemble the glasses of an artist or intellectual from the 60s. A svelte symphony of geometric lines merged with curvilinear and convex surfaces creates maximum impact in monochrome black and modern masculine hues of brown horn and striped grey.

Global Eye Care Leader Alcon Joins ‘Think About Your Eyes’ Initiative  to Further Educate Consumers on Importance of Eye Health

Global Eye Care Leader Alcon Joins ‘Think About Your Eyes’ Initiative to Further Educate Consumers on Importance of Eye Health

Alcon, a global leader in eye care, is the latest industry partner to join Think About Your Eyes, a national public awareness campaign aimed at educating consumers on the benefits of vision health. This addition continues the impressive growth and momentum of the industry initiative presented by The Vision Council and the American Optometric Association, which speaks directly to consumers and promotes the importance of getting an annual comprehensive eye exam. “Alcon is passionate about developing advanced products to help people see better and enjoy a higher quality of life, so partnering with the ‘Think About Your Eyes’ campaign was a natural step in our continued efforts to encourage proper eye care,” said Eric Bruno, vice president and general manager for U.S. Vision Care at Alcon. “We’re proud to take part in such a vital health initiative and look forward to educating consumers on the necessity of a yearly eye exam, which is crucial to attaining the clear, healthy vision every person deserves.” Since the national launch of the Think About Your Eyes campaign, eye exams have increased 4.5 percent, leading to an additional 5.2 million annual eye exams and the diagnosis of more than 525,000 previously undiagnosed eye diseases. The initiative employs national television, radio, print and online/digital advertising to share educational and motivational messages about eye disease, eye strain, children’s vision and how regular eye exams can positively affect overall health. The campaign is designed to encourage consumers to schedule an eye exam by visiting thinkaboutyoureyes.com.
