TRAD: Limited Edition Vision Expo West Release

TRAD: Limited Edition Vision Expo West Release

Combining design with function is the philosophy of the ÖGA brand. ÖGA’s Limited Edition Trad concept is an acetate frame equipped with a patented flex system which is both bold and visually simplistic. Trad’s outstanding design combines aesthetic appeal with mechanical function. The flex-hinge is made of a 1.4mm stainless steel wire folded into a clip which connects the front with the temple. The hinge fulfills an integral part of the frame’s appeal, giving it an intriguing personality. Fronts are available in either a matte or gloss finish and it is milled to house the wire held onto the endpiece with a visible dowel pin creating a cross-stitch graphic effect. These two limited edition models are available in four colors each ranging from black to crystal and include a superb red version! The Trad concept has a pure creative feel, with only the little clip adding a splash of color on the hinge bringing out the very best qualities of the frame. Look forward to a follow-up release in January 2015. ÖGA is a brand for confident men looking for frames with a creative difference. For more information visit www.morel-france.com

Talvac II, ÖGA Introduces Two Full-Rimmed Frames To Talvac Family

Talvac II, ÖGA Introduces Two Full-Rimmed Frames To Talvac Family

ÖGA releases Talvac II, adding two full-rimmed metal models to the original semi-rimless Talvac family. The combinations of material and color contrasts make the Talvac concept visually striking, masculine, and comfortable. Full-rimmed stainless steel frame fronts are paired with handcrafted acetate temples for a unique, but timeless design. The texture, which defines the concept, is inspired by Scandinavian furniture where layers of material produce unique effects. The Talvac temple, made from two-tone triple-layered acetate, is milled to reveal a second layer in a contrasting color and then textured using laser technology. The integrated endpiece hides the cam return spring-hinge system and acts as the link between the temple and frame fronts. Each of the two new Talvac II models is offered in three colors each.
