Best Designers for Classic Eyewear

Top classic eyewear brands include:

  • Bevel
  • Calvin Klein
  • SALT.
  • Tom Ford
  • MYKITA®
  • Salvatore Ferragamo

Best Designers for Durable Eyewear

Many major designers believe that fashion eyewear should be as functional as it is visually appealing. As a result, several designers have created eyewear that is built to last a lifetime.

These designers employ traditional techniques with modern technology to craft quality eyewear that doesn’t skimp on style.

Designers that create remarkably durable eyewear include:

  • NW77th
  • SALT.
  • Sama
  • Tarian®
  • Persol®

Best Designers for Vintage Eyewear

Vintage eyewear usually includes uniquely shaped frames, such as cat eye or aviator frames. While these retro frames are a blast from the past, their distinctive aesthetic allows patients to explore colors and shapes not seen in more classic frames.

  • John Varvatos
  • Tiffany & Co.
  • Tom Ford

  • Sama
  • Tom Ford
  • Bvlgari
  • ETRO
  • FACE À FACE
