Prada, Michael Kors, Persol, and Tory Burch Caught on Film

Here at FramesDirect.com we sell the highest quality designer glasses from the most fashionably aspirational brands.  Four of our favorite brands got the Hollywood treatment when we created some imaginative video vignettes. These original narratives speak to the unique brand stories of Tory Burch, Persol, Michael Kors, and Prada eyeglasses and sunglasses.

First up, a ton of Tory Burch sunglasses go on vacation to the Hamptons. We find our Tory Burch fanatic trying to pack her suitcase for the weekend (wearing a gorgeous Tory Burch shift dress), but there’s not quite enough room for every style that she wants to squeeze in. Do you think she will sacrifice her books and bottle of wine for a wardrobe of sunnies? Watch the video to find out!

If you’re not already familiar with the Persol brand of eyewear, this is a beautiful introduction. These hand crafted, Italian frames are perfect for the man who is passionate, creative, and discerning – just like the artist in the video. Watch as he gets inspired to create a colorful mural while wearing 3 different sophisticated spectacles.

Michael Kors is a beloved American sportswear brand whose designer has also become a famous personality due to guest appearances on Project Runway. Much like the contestants on that show, in our video a fashion designer is experiencing a creative block. That is, until some Michael Kors sunglasses become the pièce de résistance of her design.

Finally, we have Prada – the final word in chic eyewear. A brainy yet fashion-forward pair of scientists are working in the lab when the equations on the wipe board create a surprising pattern. Can a love of fashion lead to chemistry? Anything is possible.

We had a great time on set creating these videos. Thanks to the team at Sparksight, here in Austin, TX, who turn fashion dreams into reality.

 

Latest Sunglasses (Wildest Sunglasses) for Summer 2016

Looking through the latest sunglasses arrivals at FramesDirect.com for something fun and summery for you guys, these 4 pairs screamed “pick me” the loudest. It’s fun to go wild with details and materials; why stick to rhinestones, or rivets, or over-sized shapes when you can have all three.

Here are some of the most fun, out-there, statement-making designer sunglasses to come out this Summer of 2016.

First up, Kate Spade Karyna/S sunglasses, these just make me smile. The cat-eye shape and daisy detailing are such a fun throwback. I love the classic yellow and white daisies, but these are available in ALL pink as well!

If those Kate Spades aren’t Fashion (with a capital F) enough for you, these out-there  Gucci sunglasses are for a girl whose heart beats for bold Italian style. Now that Alessandro Michele (former head of accessories) is in charge, you can expect more and more of these wild choices. Oversized square frames and rhinestones add just the hint of humor needed to balance out that bold, distinctive Gucci branding.
