Buying glasses means choosing frames, and for us, that’s the best part of wearing glasses (and that’s why we never wear contact lenses!) But for some, having to wear eyeglass frames is a nightmare. Some people can’t stand how they look with metal or plastic frames and opt out for contact lenses and yet they still earn to wear glasses because deep inside they want the eyeglass look or perhaps simply don’t really like contact lenses in the first place.
When we meet our customers who dislike glasses, our first suggestion is that they try on a pair of rimless glasses like the Lindberg Spirit Titanium. In fact, this is a timely blog post for us because we are having our annual Lindberg Eyewear Trunk Show at our store in Brookline, MA this upcoming Saturday on October 2 and you are certainly invited! But back to rimless eyeglasses.
Rimless eyeglass frames are practically invisible, which means that there’s nothing to come between your eyes and the world. There is nothing to obstruct your vision or to go out of style. Rimless frames will look great on you and stay comfortable to wear until you feel like it’s time for a new pair of glasses. Rimless eyewear also gives you a very sophisticated and high-end executive image but you can also combine them with some colorful yet elegant side arms to show off a dash of style.
We love Lindberg rimless glasses especially because they are the lightest rimless frames in the world at a tiny 2.8 grams and they’re amazingly flexible (with their awesome screwless hinge), but there are lots of designers that have rimless frame options. No matter who you are, there is probably a pair of rimless glasses out there that will make you feel fabulous and convince you that wearing glasses can be great.
There are amazing rimless frames for women:
Have you tried on a pair of rimless glasses from Lindberg or another designer? What did you think?
Have you ever met someone who was actually quite attractive and intelligent but ended up looking dowdy or awkward because their glasses were just wrong for them?
It’s not hard to find a pair of designer glasses that look great, but it’s also easy to forget that our glasses can impact how others perceive us. In other words, your glasses shouldn’t just look great – they should also match your face, fit your image and maybe even say something special about who you are.
Eyeglasses can enhance or detract from your personality, depending on the style. Because the face is the first thing people look at, an accessory like glasses will say so much more about you than your shoes or most other accessories.They are just very visible and everyone looks at your face when they greet you or speak with you so you can’t avoid them noticing your glasses.
Just any pair of designer glasses that look great on our shelves may turn necessarily be a match for your face and may just not be exactly the style that you’re looking for. And the pair you overlooked? Those frames might just be you.
So before you shop, think about what personality traits you want your glasses to bring out. Do you consider yourself to be a fun and high-fashion personand you want the world to know that? Or are you looking for a conservative executive with a calculated image? Would you rather be seen as sophisticated or stylish, or both? Youthful or conservative? Retro and vintage or modern style? It’s up to you because there are glasses for every personality type.
Need some examples?
For the creative type – or anyone who wants to be seen as a creative type – we think J.F. Rey’s Celui is the ultimate in imaginative free expression.
To project that CEO image, nothing beats Lindberg Spirit Titanium rimless frames. Simple, yet sophisticated.
The Mykita David, on the other hand, is the perfect frame for anyone who wants to project a no-nonsense image while also showing the world that they appreciate the finer things in life.
And for those who love all things classic, Face a Face Nueva tortoiseshell frames make a timeless statement.
The statement-making doesn’t end there, though. There are designer eyeglasses that are perfect for parents, eyewear designed just for the student, frames for the fashion lover, and more. We love the versatility of designer eyeglasses collections – no matter who you are or what you do, there are glasses that can help you professionally, describe your personality, coordinate with your clothes, and help you share yourself with the world.
When you buy glasses, do you choose frames that emphasize who you really are or frames thatshow who you want to be? Or just have several eyeglass frames and then choose one of them depending what you feel like that day.
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?
