LINDBERG Eyewear: From Rome to Iceland

Have you ever considered making your LINDBERG glasses frame even more personal with your name engraved? Not only do you have a beautiful designer product made from some of the most innovative minds in the world, but it is exclusively and uniquely yours – who wouldn’t want that?

Engraved LINDBERG Eyeglasses

In addition to such an engraving, each LINDBERG frame bears an individual identification number. What’s it for? Well, let this recent story tell you, about how the special ID number helped a little girl from Iceland get her lost glasses back:

Five-year-old Olafia Bella lost her LINDBERG Kid glasses while visiting Rome. Luckily, someone found them and handed them in to an optician in the area. He then called LINDBERG in Denmark, who were able to identify that the frame had been sold by a shop in Iceland. The little girl’s glasses were returned to LINDBERG, who then sent them on to the shop where they were purchased.

The Icelandic shop’s owner was delighted to be able to hand the lost glasses over to the little girl and her mother. As he ex- plains, “Olafia Bella came in to get her lost designer glasses, bringing us flowers and a card, so sweet and sincere. The staff in our shop that day had tears in their eyes when she left, smiling to us. I’ve always said that no other eyewear brand is as concerned about its customers as LINDBERG – especially when children are involved.”

Olafia Bella’s thank-you card bore the words,

Dear staff in Iceland, Denmark, and Rome, thank you for sending my glasses back home to me here in Iceland. I’m so happy now. Signed Olafía Bella

This touching story about the glasses that got lost, but were recovered and returned to their rightful owner was featured in the Morgunbladid national newspaper in Iceland.

If you’ve ever lost a pair of designer eyeglasses, you can understand Olafia’s and her family’s stress upon discovering they were gone. An investment lost and a prized accessory gone, we’ve all been there before. But with LINDBERG’s special engraving services, you can avoid such a financially and emotionally stressful event.

Top Eyewear Trends for 2013

It’s that time of year when our minds are focused on new beginnings, and while we have a pile of resolutions to get moving on, our biggest focus is watching the top eyewear trends for 2013! From retro floral designs and odd shapes to extreme cat eyes and oversized round lenses, this year’s hottest looks are about standing out and being your bold, bad self. Check out our top picks, inspired by this season’s runway themes.


Face a Face Reina 2 c.025 sunglasses
Face a Face Reina 2 c.499 sunglasses

A theme of nature ran throughout the spring runway shows at New York Fashion Week, from the daisies on Prada and Mulberry’s dresses and handbags to the pops of floral colors on Raf Simons’ first collection for Christian Dior. The inherently retro look is made fresh by the flowers that signal new life, like our favorite Face a Face Reina 2 sunglasses in two neutral shades. Both feature glossy black front rims, with the 025 accented by a silver bloom and white arms, and the 499 with gold.

Unconventional silhouettes are everywhere this season. From the catwalks of Fendi, Versace, and Marni and on the models for Prabal Gurung and Alberta Ferretti, 2013 is definitely not a year for the fashion timid. Let your freak flag fly and embrace the multi-faceted and multi-colored styles of the season from Roger Eyewear. Unlike anything you’ve seen before, Roger Linda eyeglasses have egg-shaped lenses surrounded by a gray and black rim, with an exaggerated arc in the center that helps give this look its unique appearance. Another great choice from the Dutch brand is a pair of Roger Bola eyeglasses, a two-toned rectangular style with a delightfully capricious shape.


Oliver Goldsmith Orbison sunglasses

A little bit of feline flair in your look can boost your confidence and style, thanks to its sensual shape that has its own brand of sex appeal. Models strutted their stuff at Erdem, Jason Wu, and Alice + Olivia’s spring shows wearing oversized cat-eye sunglasses in styles everywhere from sleek and classic to otherwordly and futuristic. We think Oliver Goldsmith Orbison sunglasses are a great choice for the exaggerated look, which also works well with the oddly shaped trend. It can be difficult to find frames that blend popular looks without becoming overwhelming, but the English designer does it expertly.


MYKITA Teiti sunglasses
Oliver Goldsmith Casper sunglasses

Louis Vuitton, Jil Sander, and Holly Fulton are just a few of the many designer who donned their models with round sunglasses for the spring. We’re not talking round-“ish” – this trend is all about making a statement. Perfectly circular silhouettes like a pair of MYKITA Teiti sunglasses do the trick, which let you see the world through rose-colored lenses all season long. Want to go even brighter? Oliver Goldsmith Casper sunglasses in Claret have a transparent frame that shines bright in the sun.
