We have a crush. The shades to get you stocked for cool urban chic - at an unbelievable price

When it comes to accessory design, fresh new ideas can be found, well, almost everywhere. The trick is to create high quality and affordable pieces that mirror the restless pace of a big city and of a modern mobile lifestyle. Three models, three colours, one price. Meet Berlin-made OWL OPTICSowl-founders-glasses-berlin
Owl Optics was founded 2011 by David Kamp and Lars Neckel, trained architect and former designer at Mykita. The idea behind Owl was to create affordable frames of premium quality and urban, sleek design – of that kind that’s loved by a geek, a hipster, or a fashion aficionado alike. 
 
The collection pays homage to retro classics and consists of three unisex models, each limited to 100 pieces. The models are named „eins“, „zwei“ and „drei“ (German for one, two, three) and come in a palette of three muted, flattering colours midnight, palisander and nude. The handcrafted acetate frames have a matt surface with only a delicate shiny copper ring – the reduced shape of a stylized owl – for the brand’s signature. owl-glasses-berlin
The true highlight is that Owl’s 150-Euro-frames come complete with high quality double-coated prescription lenses – small fees might apply for unusual or very strong prescriptions though. In summer 2012 Owl updated their collection with new high quality sunglasses lenses.
