Blinde Eyewear: Fashion-Forward Eyewear for Trendsetters, Not Trend Followers
Based in Los Angeles, and part of the Optical Shop International portfolio of premium eyewear brands, Blinde Eyewear has carved out a niche for itself with fashion editors, stylists and A-List Hollywood and fashion insiders who are looking for trend-setting eyewear that distinguishes itself from mass-produced department-store and optical chain "designer" brands.
Fusing impeccable design and style with extremely high-quality materials and craftsmanship, the Blinde Eyewear Collection - which includes both sunglasses and optical frames -- has managed to continually-evolve and remain at the top of the fashion cognoscenti’s list of “must haves."
All Blinde frames are made from the highest quality zyl which is tumble polished for 72 hours to achieve maximum luster. The frames have core beta titanium in the temples for flexibility and comfort and the signature seven-barrel, six-pin stainless steel hinge is one of the strongest and most durable in the industry.
Feminine shapes abound, including bold over-size sunglasses in striking zyl and zyl/metal combinations as well as subtler wrap shapesthat make their own statement. Ophthalmics include the "geek chic" styles for which Blinde is known.
In 2003, Women’s Wear Daily nominated Richard Walker and Blinde Design for its annual Rising Star Award for emerging talent. Urban Optiques offers the full line of Blinde eyewear, including the latest 2011 Blinde sunglass and optical frame collections.
