Our Multicolored Friends From Prodesign Eyewear

We all have those days where we just want to be invisible, but many of us have moments where all we want to do is shine. Our favorite way to stand out in the crowd is with a bold pair of specs that doubles as a cool accessory and a great conversation piece. We hope you’ll love these Prodesign eyeglasses as much as we do. Today we were in the mood for blue and pink styles. And here they are!

Prodesign 4627 eyeglasses:

Prodesign 4628 C. 3022 Eyeglasses
These frames are modern and unique with their subtle geometric design, a trend that is very popular this season. Made of high-quality plastic, the material is transparent so that the colors can shine bright when light beams through them. Their narrow silhouette is great for those with round or oval faces, balancing facial features and bringing harmony to your entire look.

From Denmark With Love, ProDesign Eyewear

Prodesign 1638 C. 4932 Eyeglasses
Prodesign 4642 C. 9022 Eyeglasses
Prodesign 4618 C. 4132 Eyeglasses ProDesign glasses are some of the most affordable high-end modern glasses available today for both women and men. For offering high quality at a great price, ProDesign Eyewear has an enduring appeal.

ProDesign was originally founded in 1973, and the company’s design philosophy and brand values underwent an amazing change over time, heading in a direction that put ProDesign into a league of its own in the world of luxury eyewear.

The designers – Allan Rasmussen, Marin Jespersen, Oden Capello, and Gail Spence – work with titanium, choice metals, and acetate. Additionally, Gail Spence, an American-born Danish jewelry designer, specializes in colorful and lightweight aluminum frames with a signature hinge that allows wearers to choose any number of interchangeable temple designs for a custom look.

ProDesign frames are a literal embodiment of Danish simplicity, with clean lines and nothing that could be called superfluous in their construction. But each classic pair of ProDesign eyeglasses is imbued with something unexpected – perhaps a bold color on the interior of the frame, angular cut outs on the arms, or a contrasting emphasis on the hinge. Each detail is designed for maximum impact without overpowering the frame itself.

There is a trend-setting timelessness that defines ProDesign eyewear, with traditional shapes balanced with a playfulness that makes these frames appeal to people from all walks of life. In the world of ProDesign, eyewear outfits the face, so the company has always endeavored to create frames that follow the unique facial contours and enhance the appearance of all who wear them.

There are five main lines of ProDesign eyewear:

  • ESSENTIAL: For those who follow fashion but prefer a more subtle look, Essential embodies mainstream style sensibilities without demanding attention..
  • 4TH DIMENSION: These frames have a sporty, urban, and above-all chic modishness that is perfect for the glasses wearer who wants to get noticed.
  • IRIS: Understated glamour is the defining factor of the Iris collection, which has an unmistakable feminine touch.
  • ZENSE: Creativity underlies Zense frames, which feature simple colors and high-tech details that combine to form an exclusive, expertly-designed silhouette
  • FOR PRODESIGN: This line is created by guest designers (such as Gail Spence) and has a worldly quality that comes from outside influences.

ProDesign glasses are a very popular choice at Vizio Optic among people looking for eyeglasses with elegance and style yet at a great price. The diversity of the brand’s collections means that even those who don’t initially come to us looking for ProDesign frames are often taken with their matchless style.

Have you ever tried a pair of ProDesign glasses?

A unisex frame, the rectangular rims have rounded corners to flatter most faces. A subtle pattern lines the inner surface for an understated accent on this style.

Our favorite reading glasses for 2012

It’s no secret these days – more people than ever are in need of corrective eyewear. In fact, more than 90 percent of people wear some form of glasses, according to the Wall Street Journal. This includes reading glasses, which are great for those who spend a lot of time working on the computer.

Reading eyeglasses help reduce strain on your eyes, which often leads to fatigue. Also, those who opt for anti-glare treatments on their lenses will benefit during their nighttime reading, so that light bounces right off the glasses rather than shining right through.

What’s great about reading glasses is that just about any pair of frames can be fitted for them – so here are some of our favorite pairs of designer eyeglasses to use for reading this season:

Prodesign 4650 eyeglasses

Prodesign 4650 eyeglasses in color 6032 are a great unisex option. It looks best on those with sharper angles in their face, as the round curves give a nice contrast and accentuate these features. They are quite a simple design, with a small patch of color on the hinge with matching ear tips.

Alain Mikli AL0322 eyeglasses

Alain Mikli AL0322 glasses are a funkier style, with a full plastic rim that is accented with black and clear stripes. The brand is known for its cool patterns, so make sure to check out the entire collection to find something that fits with your personal style.

Face a Face Ebony 1 eyeglasses
For the ladies, Face a Face has a vast collection of feminine frames that are perfect for reading glasses. Try Face a Face Ebony 1 glasses for example. The cat-eye shape is an extremely popular retro style these days, and the red-to-clear gradient is a modern twist that will definitely be making heads turn. Who wouldn’t want a pair of these chic frames?

Today we have a new range of styles from Prodesign – a Danish brand that we love for its simple styles. Always sticking to its penchant for clean lines and minimalist features is what the company is known for, and who doesn’t love a brand that stays true to its roots? Take a look at some of the newest frames:

Prodesign 4366 eyeglasses

Prodesign 4366 eyeglasses embody everything that the company believes in – a minimal design with modern touches. The semi-rimless frame’s top is nearly flat, giving it a bit of masculine flair. That doesn’t mean it’s just for the guys, however, menswear is hot for the ladies this season and these frames are a great way to test the waters. The glasses are made of lightweight titanium, with soft silicone along the temples.

Prodesign 7612 eyeglasses

Prodesign 7612 eyeglasses are a little more feminine with their slight cat-eye shape, but the subtle angles help keep it unisex. This style is excellent for softer face shapes, and comes in a number of different color combinations (tortoise/purple, gradient black/clear, black/tortoise, gradient purple/clear, tortoise/red, and gradient brown/clear). The 7612 has one small accent – a hinge wrapped in solid silver.

Prodesign 1383 eyeglassesLastly, this two-toned style – Prodesign 1383 eyeglasses – is an excellent pair of glasses for a casual, comfortable look. Also made of lightweight titanium, these frames have recessed stripes on the temples that show off the complementary second color that also runs along the inner surface.

ProDesign Iris 5133 eyeglasses

Inspired by a bracelet seen in New York City, ProDesign Iris 5133 eyeglasses feature a cut-out 3D pattern on the temples. It took the designers quite a while to create exactly what they had envisioned for the feminine metal frames, finally settling on the semi-rimless eyeglasses style in two tones. The 5133 is available in brown/green, black/gold, green/purple, purple/gold (above), red/silver, and pink/purple.

ProDesign 6118 eyeglasses

ProDesign 6118 eyeglasses are a more casual style with an athletic appeal.

ProDesign 6501 eyeglasses
