LINDBERG Spirit Titanium 2112

With so many different styles of eyeglasses out there, it can be overwhelming to choose the one that suits your tastes. For those who prefer a minimalist approach to eyewear, LINDBERG offers its award-winning collection of rimless glasses that are modern, smart and highly customizable.

There are plenty of reasons to opt for rimless eyeglasses . Many people who need glasses in adulthood are not used to wearing them, so they want a style that won’t drastically change their look. LINDBERG’s iconic rimless glasses are less obvious than full-rim and acetate frames, and they are also much lighter thanks to the company’s historic AIR Titanium frame.

Titanium is lightweight, strong and flexible, which means less pressure on your nose and ears so you aren’t perpetually aware of the glasses’ existence. LINDBERG frames weigh as little as 1.9g. The designer also prides itself on its innovative design, for which LINDBERG has won 47 prestigious awards, as well as the Danish Royal Warrant of Appointment. Using a spring hinge in lieu of screws, you’ll never run the risk of the glasses loosening or coming apart.

LINDBERG eyewear also offers customized bridges and lens shapes so that you are able to design the perfect pair of glasses that will flatter your face and enhance your look. Join the ranks of the Danish Royal Family, as well as international celebrities like Robert De Niro, Tyra Banks and Roberto Cavalli, with a pair of LINDBERG eyeglasses from Vizio Optic .

Achieve Elegance and Style with Lafont Eyewear from Paris

Lafont eyewear

Lafont is an eyeglass brand known worldwide for elegant details, incomparable use of shapes and colors, and superb craftsmanship. Lafont eyewear is the premier designer of eyeglasses and sunglasses that blend luxury and high-tech innovation with a playful sensibility. More than simply glasses, Lafont eyewear is an accessory akin to fine jewelry and designer handbags that can be coordinated with the day’s ensemble or serve as a fashion showpiece.

A family-owned business, Lafont Eyewear can trace its origins back almost 90 years to 1923, when patriarch Louis Lafont opened an optical shop in Paris. Husband and wife team Phillipe and Laurence Lafont carried on the Lafont tradition of offering the world superb eyewear when they created the Lafont brand in 1972. It was Phillipe who suggested that Laurence design a few frames for the boutique, and her first small collection sold so well that in 1979, the couple devoted themselves full time to eyewear design.

Since then, son Thomas Lafont has joined the design team and released his own collections under the Lafont umbrella. And Lafont has continued to lead the pack in designer eyewear fashion, creating the trends instead of following them with original and smart lines of women’s, men’s, children’s, and infants’ glasses and sunglasses that represent a true diversity of styles.

It is precisely that talent for range that has made Lafont one of the most celebrated eyewear brands in the fashion accessory industry. A pair of Lafont eyeglasses or sunglasses brings the eyes to life, framing them with impulsive colors, architectural construction, and surprising features like cutouts, flares at the brow, or clever inlays. This is where a lust for leopard prints, crystals, and even coral. And yet, as lightheartedand mischievous as Lafont frames can be, they are also an homage to long-established eyewear styles like the cat’s eye frame and the half-rim frames of yesteryear.

All Lafont eyewear is designed and manufactured in Paris using the highest quality materials, like rich acetates and pure metals, and the latest technological advancements, so a pair of the brand’s eyeglasses or sunglasses is guaranteed to be a lasting part of one’s wardrobe. Perhaps that is one piece of the magic of Lafont? Whether flashy or traditional, glasses and sunglasses by Lafont are rich, vibrant, warm, and utterly brilliant.

Today, Lafont eyewear is sold only in select authorized eyeglass shops throughout Europe, Asia, and Australia and North America, including Vizio Optic in Brookline, MA.   We hope you like Lafont as much as we do – it is an amazing collection, both elegant and fashionable for all ages.

LINDBERG Spirit Titanium: The Most Comfortable Rimless Eyeglass Frames in the World

For those of you who wear or at least tried on the LINDBERG Spirit Titanium rimless eyeglass frames, you know what an amazing pair of eyewear feels like in its lightest form. In these elegant glasses, you don’t feel much because they feel as light as feathers so you barely feel them at all. They are made out of Titanium so they are even lighter still and nearly indestructible. And the hinge has no screws. No screws means less weight than what already feels weightless.  So LINDBERG Spirit Titanium frames are in that unique class of eyewear that fades into the background while still attracting admiration and attention due to their very elegant and minimalistic, hand-made Danish design.

We think that LINDBERG Spirit Titanium glasses are the most elegant and the lightest rimless eyeglass frames in the world at just 2.8 grams. With no soldering, screws, or rivets, the design features ultra-thin, ultra-durable titanium wire artfully twisted into temples, hinges, bridge, and clips accommodating any number of frame colors and lens shapes and types. Plus, the remarkable flexibility of this titanium makes LINDBERG Spirit rimless glasses almost entirely customizable as we and other opticians can tailor the temples and bridges to match your style (pick any color!) and ensure a perfect fit for your face. These are truly custom-made glasses that take no less effort than tailoring a custom suit or tuxedo.

Since the Danish firm of architects Dissing &Weitling collaborated with optometrist Poul-Jorn LINDBERG to create these striking rimless frames in 1983, the LINDBERG Spirit Titanium (and previously its predecessor LINDBERG Air Titanium) have been awarded many of the most prestigious international design awards.

Today, these pioneers of ultra-lightweight eyewear are as smart and stylish as ever, with devotees among the celebrity set – as well as the Danish and British royal families. Try them on, and you may just become the newest disciple of LINDBERG Spirit Titanium eyewear.

Here are some examples of LINDBERG Spirit Titanium rimless frames – do you like them as much as we do?

LINDBERG Rim Titanium Glasses: Simply Smart

In the case of Danish eyewear master and designer Paul-Jorn Lindberg, inspiration was born of exasperation – namely, exasperation at the fact that the eyeglass frames in LINDBERG’s very own shop held little appeal for him. First came his groundbreaking LINDBERG Air Titanium (the predecessor of the LINDBERG Spirit Titanium) rimless frames, which have stayed on the  radar for almost 30 years. Then came LINDBERG’s innovation: LINDBERG Rim Titanium eyeglass frames, sleek super lightweight full-rim frames without any screws.  These are the favorite of executives, politicians and royalty alike.

Just as in the original LINDBERG rimless eyeglass frames, everything superfluous – welding, screws, and rivets – has been eliminated from LINDBERG Rim Titanium glasses, leaving behind only what is necessary for absolute comfort and superior style. These are frames that have been reduced to the bare essentials while maintaining their innate magnificence of design. It’s not at all surprising that LINDBERG Rim Titanium glasses are the glasses for anyone who wants to project a calculated image – the eyes reveal what they want to reveal while the super slim titanium rims add just the tiniest touch of mystery.

As far as looks go, LINDBERG Rim Titanium glasses take Danish minimalism to a whole new level with incredible design finesse and true aesthetic innovation. Their simple elegance belies strength and flexibility that demonstrates that, yes, less can be more and beauty can be strong.

We really like these LINDBERG Rim Titanium glasses.  How do you like them?
