Limited Edition Oakley Frames

Limited edition Oakley Fuente Hijinx sunglasses and Tumbler eyeglasses are available at FramesDirect.comThere were only 400 of the Oakley Fuente Tumbler eyeglasses and 400 of the Oakley Fuente Hijinx sunglasses made in the entire world and they will never be made again. FramesDirect.com is one of the few places in the world that was given some by Oakley. We have 25 of each in stock and ready to ship, so get yours while they last!

Revolutionary ideas from an island in the northern Caribbean inspired the art of the special edition Tumbler and Hijinx. The outspoken attitude and clean lines of Oakley Tumbler and Hijinx are a perfect backdrop for graphics that capture a history of solidarity that defied the status quo. Look close and you’ll see “1975″ – the year Oakley began its own rebellion against industry standards.

Lifestyle isn’t about where you live or what you do. It’s the way you approach things, the way you tell your own story. The art of Oakley has always been inspired by those who step off the beaten path to find something they can call their own. That’s our definition of authenticity, and that’s why the Limited Edition TUMBLER is such a pure, clean look of originality. Tilted metal icons tell the world you’re not the type who gets in line with the straight and narrow, and screen printed art enriches the stems to take style where it’s never been.

The Limited Edition Fuente Hijinx comes with Oakley’s HDPolarized optics to balance light transmission, boost visual contrast and enhance depth perception in bright sun. Glare is a hazard, especially when the solar orb is blazing the sky, so we optimized these sunglasses with premium polarization. Ordinary polarized lenses are manufactured with processes that can lead to visual haze and optical distortion but Oakley HDPolarized lenses are made a special way that eliminates those weaknesses, giving you crystal clear vision while stopping 99% of glare.

  • This special edition of Oakley Tumbler and Hijinx comes with a collectors’ pin and a custom Microclear bag for lens cleaning and eyewear storage.
  • Durability and all-day comfort of lightweight, stress-resistant O Matter frame material
  • Precision and durability of sculpturally integrated hinge mechanisms with dual-action cams
  • Optimized and extended peripheral view plus enhanced side coverage of Polaric Ellipsoid lens geometry
  • Comfort and performance of Three-Point Fit that holds the lens in precise optical alignment
  • Minimized glare via technology that produces the best polarized lenses on the planet
  • Further glare reduction plus balanced light transmission of Iridium lens coating
  • Optical precision and performance that meets ANSI Z87.1 standards
  • Impact resistance that meets ANSI Z87.1 basic standards
  • UV protection of Plutonite lens material that filters out 100% of all UVA, UVB, UVC and harmful blue light up to 400nm
  • Metal icon accents in Square O design on the Tumbler
  • The Tumbler is constructed of lightweight, stress resistant, durable acetate
  • Heat adjustable
  • 7 Barrel hinge
  • Silk screen print on temple

Calvin Klein Eyewear: The Finishing Touch

Calvin Cklein ck Eyewear provides the finishing touch to runway fashion showsThe lights are bright. The music is pumping. The models come out and strut down the catwalk as the crowd watches in awe.

We only get to see the exciting end product of fashion shows. What we don’t witness are the behind the scenes masterminds bringing the show to life within those few minutes. And it isn’t just a great outfit that astounds; the accessories help achieve the impact – the shoes, the hats . . . and of course, the eyewear.

At the Calvin Klein runway shows, Marchon’s senior director for Calvin Klein and ck Calvin Klein eyewear collection, Linda Ryno, is a driving force behind the eyewear styles that go down the runway, pairing eyewear with the ensemble to perfect a look.

“The eyewear styles at the shows tie into the overall design philosophy of the brand,” she explains. “It’s always a minimalistic look, like [Calvin Klein runway styles designer] Francesco Costa’s clothing. The eyewear always ties into the color palette of the season.”

The final runway ensembles are the well thought-out products of collaboration.

“Marchon’s design team works directly with Francesco Costa and he decides what look he wants,” she explains. “We meet with him and he gives us inspiration for the season. He gives us sketches, shapes, old vintage eyewear that he wants us to draw inspiration from. It’s a meeting of the minds. We go off and develop prototypes.”

When the stage is set and the show is ready to begin, the eyewear is the finishing touch.

“It completes the look,” says Ryno. “It’s like the bow on the present.”

Look Up: Ray Ban Wayfarers Colors

Ray Ban Wayfarer sunglasses color collection eventTo help launch the new Wayfarer Color Collection, Ray-Ban collaborated with five prominent underground artists in New York for the Project Colorize Campaign, which culminated with a daylong event last month.

“Project Colorize,” part of the month-long Public Art Gallery project, features the works of artists: Ron English (pictured left), Tara McPherson, Scott Alger, Queen Andrea and Toofly, on giant billboards in various locations around New York City. The unveiling of the billboards was accompanied by a public stunt that literally stopped traffic on Sixth Avenue when a troop of actors, dressed all in black and wearing colored Wayfarers, froze in the middle of the intersection between 31st Street and Sixth Avenue to stare up at artist Ron English’s billboard as it was unveiled.

The “6th Avenue Freeze” was followed by an after party at the Henri Bendel store on Fifth Avenue where customers were able to shop for Ray-Ban styles, including colored Wayfarers, while enjoying cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a DJ spinning music.
