On a recent trip to New York, Vizio Optic owner Galina Rabkin headed to Vision Expo to check out the 2013 collections from our favorite brands. Not only did she discover the new and exciting WOOW eyewear from Face a Face, but she got to meet the masterminds behind the most creative and beautiful frames in fashion.
Here she is with Thomas Lafont, chief designer of Lafont eyewear. Color is one of the defining characteristics of this French brand, as you can easily tell with the bright and bold setup of their VisionExpo booth.
“Essentially people’s wardrobes consist of navy blue, black or dark brown. My job as a designer is to escort both the optician and the consumer to a new idea of color and offer them a new story,” Lafont recently told 20/20 Magazine.
You may notice the background of this booth looks a little familiar, just another stunning photo that’s part of the Robert Marc City Garden Collection. Photographed here with Mr. Marc himself, Galina loved the juxtaposition of urban life with natural scenery that is the inspiration of his 2013 line. Check out more photos of the Robert Marc booth at VisionExpo on Facebook, where you can see his Spring Show in full bloom.
One more thing, we know you wanted to ask… Galina is wearing Face a Face Smoke 3 eyeglasses in color 9329.
