In the past few years we have seen many customers buy and wear multiple pairs of eyeglasses and we are seeing this more frequently now.  Yet we have to ask: Just why is it that some other folks consider it to be extravagant to have multiple pairs of glasses for different activities, in different environments, or to harmonize with different outfits?

People wouldn’t wear the same pair of shoes every day. Similarly, they wouldn’t wear same shoes on the ball court, in the boardroom, and on the beach (we hope). So why do some people think that they must only have one pair of glasses for every day?

Face it, those who need to wear glasses should be wearing glasses that match their face perfect and convey a right image.  Good glasses are a must-have for anyone who wants to look their best, at home, at work, and out on the town.

Once upon a time, you might have gotten by with a basic utilitarian frame that would take you from day to night, but today’s designer glasses come in so many colors, shapes, and materials that it seems almost crazy not to have some fun with your specs by investing in multiple pairs of glasses. It’s all about initial impressions. Glasses are one of the first things people will notice when they look at you, and a great pair of frames can say so much about who you are. Maybe one day you want to show the world you’re sensible and professional, but you’d rather be seen as daring and creative the next.

To put it another way, would you really want to wear the same glasses with your wedding gown as you wear when you’re gardening? Owning multiple pairs of glasses means your glasses are always apropos.

So next time you’re buying frames, think in terms of multiple pairs of glasses. In our own wardrobes, we have at least one classic pair that coordinates with business and formal wear (we like Lindberg) and something a little more fun for when we’re feeling inspired (Face à Face and Cecile by Dino Grossman come to mind).

Are you trying to get by with only one pair of glasses? Have you tried to round out your wardrobe and give it a little pizzazz with two or three eyeglass frames?

Face à Face eyewear is one eyeglass brand that recognizes that the value of glasses and sunglasses can go beyond functionality, becoming an object of desire that’s as personal to the individual as any other accessory with which they choose to adorn themselves.
 
Established in 1995 by designers Pascal Jaulent and Nadine Roth, Face à Face brings continental chic to every pair of glasses and sunglasses in its collections. And yet other than the elite construction, exclusive designs, and distinctive architecture that define the brand, Face à Face eyewear is as diverse as those who find themselves drawn to it. All Face à Face eyewear is handmade in France, near the French Alps, using premium materials like high-impact acetates and optical grade titanium. Jaulent and Roth create jewelry for the face and, like jewelry, their glasses and sunglasses allow the wearer to express his or her own unique style.

Devotees of the brand attribute their loyalty to Face à Face Eyewear’s dedication to distinctive texture and color combinations, unexpected pairings of diverse materials, sculptural touches like sweeping contours and crisp angles, and options that include everything from classic neutrals to the trendiest colors, from streamlined frames perfect for executives to oversized sunglasses that are starlet-ready. The keyword is intensity, but it’s intensity without drama.

Maybe that’s why Face à Face glasses and sunglasses are so popular with celebrities who want a polished image without projecting flamboyance. You may have admired Face à Face fames on Dustin Hoffman, Dennis Hopper, and Sigourney Weaver without knowing precisely what you were seeing.

No matter who you are, what you wear, or how you live, there is a pair of Face à Face glasses that will bring out your natural allure by framing the brilliance that is already present.
