The Current Impression
Published on October 5, 2014
Select pieces from Walter Wissing and Co. have final arrived and they were certainly worth the wait. We are proud of our affiliation with this German firm which has crafted eyewear since 1953. Hand made to our specifications, and bearing the Josephson logo, these thin acetates feature luminous colours muted by a textured surface.
