Refinement of Form
Published on August 22, 2016
Contemporary eyewear designs are tending to incorporate multiple materials into the construction of a single frame. Industry leaders in innovation, including MYKITA and Robert Marc , are offering us a glimpse of how a more refined interpretation of this trend will soon prevail. This shift in styling is exemplified by a selection of new releases currently in stock at Josephson Opticians.

This collection represents the lightest glasses crafted by MYKITA. Whether made entirely in slender stainless steel or in a material mix where the warmth of cellulose acetate meets the sleekness of steel in an elegant connection, the reduced LITE design concept offers supreme comfort in a refined aesthetic.

The timeless, masculine styles from his Second Nature collection combine acetate fronts with slender titanium temples. All are hand crafted in Japan and their subtleties are enhanced by matted finishes of naturalistic colours such as ceder, slate and driftwood. We encourage you to view what's new when it's new, at Josephson Opticians locations throughout Toronto.
