EDGE Magazine — One of the Largest GLBT News and Entertainment Portals on the Web — Highlights Urban Optiques in its “Spring Shades” Style Feature

Yesterday morning we were thrilled to see that EDGE Magazine published a lengthy interview I did with them last EDGE Magazine Spring Shades & Sunglasses Featureweek around how to choose fashionable sunglasses and take care of your vision at the same time.

EDGE is the largest network of local Gay, Lesbian Bisexual and Transgender (GLBT) news and entertainment portals in the world, serving 500,000  readers from a variety of metropolitan areas around the United States and beyond.

Unfortunately, they don’t currently serve Detroit, but we’re hoping to change that with this story.

Check out the full article here (it’s pretty cool):


We also made EDGE’s photo spread on cool sunglasses, sending them a pair of the same Ray-Ban 3025 aviators that Megan Fox has popularized.

Special thanks to David Andrusia, the author of the article,  and the entire EDGE staff for being so great to work with.

We’re All Lit Up About the New Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses We’ve Added to the Urban Optiques Collection: Especially the Colors!

Forget about raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, one of our favorite things at Urban Optiques is when the UPS guy brings us a big, brown box filled with new eyewear.Ray-Ban Wayfarer Colors Collection

So when we received the first half of our shipment of new Ray-Ban eyewear and sunglasses, it was nothing short of feeding frenzy around the office.

Frankly, we couldn’t get these new shades in the on the rack and in the window fast enough.


Because we just brought in some of the hottest Ray-Ban models on the planet and set-aside our love for the usual classics  like tortoise and black, this time we opted for some really fun, off-the-wall colors that we are convinced will nearly fly on to people’s faces when they walk in.

But don’t take our word for it. You decide.

Here’s what we just got in:

Ray-Ban Cats

The Ray-Ban “Cats” are the fashionista’s alternative to the Wayfarer. They featureRay Ban Cats RB-5000-4125 Sunglasses Pink Gradient Grey a round plastic frame pink, as well as a shape that look fantastic on narrow or longer faces.

These are the exact pair of pink Ray-Ban “Cats” that have been spotted on Katie Price. They are available in several colors, including white, beige/tan, red and black. We picked the pink Cat, because the color is unique, and frankly, we just haven’t stocked many pink sunglasses recently. Depending on the reception, we may bring in the pink Wayfarer.

Okay, it’s time for some Sunday afternoon fun courtesy of Ray-Ban and “Never Hide Films.

What do you get when you combine two guys, a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers and some crazy pitching and catching skills?

You get “Guy Catches Glasses with Face” — an brilliant guerrilla marketing video from Ray-Ban that supports their “Never Hide” advertising campaign.

While this video isn’t new, it continues generate views (over 4.5 million to date) on YouTube and plenty of theorizing in comments on how these guys pulled off their stunt.  Spoiler to follow after you watch the original video, so don’t jump ahead.

So, without further ado, here’s “Guy Catches Glasses with Face“:
