(eye)’m inspired – Dolabany Romco

(eye)’m inspired – Dolabany Romco

  ROMCO by the Dolabany Eyewear Collection in Mahogany Smoke A Best Image Optical eyewear designer had this to say about designing the frame: Concept “The idea behind the ‘Romco’ frame was to create a unisex bold frame that will enhance both casual and professional styles. Its shields and thick bridge were incorporated in its design to give it some vintage flare.” Colors “The gradient color goal was mahogany red and grey. The color combination reminded me of the fall season in Central Park, New York. How the autumn foliage can reach a dark red color tone is beyond me. The acetate was carefully chosen to reach a beautiful color combination between a worn type mahogany wood panels and the smoke gradient color of one of my favorite animals, the Gray wolf.” Shape “Romco’s shape is a basic block frame. This is my favorite shape when I ‘m focusing on gradient color tones because I can easily transition the colors. Plus, I’m a big fan of big vintage frames.” For more information on the Dolabany Eyewear Collection visit bestimageoptical.com or read more from Best Image Optical’s (eye)’m inspired blog.

Every Tuesday is Tumblr Tuesday at Best Image Optical

Every Tuesday is Tumblr Tuesday at Best Image Optical

“Let’s talk about fall, winter, and some inspiration.  This year’s women’s fall/winter fashion trend include colors like mustard, jade, and rust hues. In print, camo, plaids, lace and polka dots are all back. In shapes, chunky sweaters, colored pants, and peplum silhouettes are all back. Oh, and let’s not forget 70’s style dresses in green. Add to this fall/winter trend some personality glasses to accessorize your look even if you don’t need prescription. A good example is the Dolabany Renegade in Ebony Demi. Also trending this fall/winter season are cat-eye shaped glasses like the Dolabany Granite inspired by a European design famous in the 50’s. View more of our winter Dolabany Eyewear collection online at http://bestimageoptical.com. For more inspiration behind our eyewear, stay tuned for a dedicated blog series titled “(eye)’m inspired” in January 2012. That’s Tumblr Tuesday!”
