Tree Hugger or Fashion Maven? Fortunately, You Don’t Have to Choose

The words “Fall” and “Fashion” are synonymous, so we know you’re working hard on your new look for the season that’s just about to start.  If you want to look sophisticated with an intellectual flair, you can’t go wrong with Lunettes Kollektion’s unisex eyeglass frames.  Better yet, you can be trendy and eco-conscious at the same time.  How is that possible?  Lunettes Kollektion frames are made from cellulose acetate, a sleek plastic-like substance based on wood and plant fibers.  And their frames are not made in a big, pollution-emitting factory.  They are hand assembled in small, family-run factories in Germany and Italy, where the pride and attention to detail of handcraftsmanship also mean a minimal carbon footprint.

Miele (“honey”) is one of Lunettes Kollektion’s trendy colors, shown here in the “Je ne sais quoi” model

If you’re thinking that eco-friendly has to mean drab or somber colors, think again.  Lunettes Kollektion offers sophisticated color choices like frosted lemon, olive amber, rouge (red), miele (honey), framboise (a pale raspberry), petrol (a smoky blue), champagne and crystal, in addition to classics like black and tortoise.

Lunettes Kollektion’s “Bon Vivant” combines the hot trend of round glasses with a double bridge suggestive of an aviator frame.

Round and modified round eyeglass frames are making a strong statement this fall, while popular “geek chic” hornrims continue their long run in popularity with new, softer, more rounded profiles.  Lunettes Kollektion offers an exciting array of both, along with other fashion-forward designs like cat eyes and plastic aviators.

Adding to the excitement, British fashion designer James Long, a fan of Lunettes Kollektion’s clever modern aesthetic, collaborated with the eyewear brand in the creation of a new line to complement his own SS14 menswear collection for this fall.

Whether you need ophthalmic (clear) or sun lenses, Lunettes Kollektion has something that’s just right to top off your new look for fall. Come see our fabulous new collection.
