MEYER Acetat frames arrive




And we are all drooling over these gorgeous frames!! Details later...

p.s. Details, as promised.

Model Frankfurt, below.



What makes Meyer frames special, you may ask? Everything, we say.
Besides the obvious technical know-how and disciplined execution on every level, from production to super subtle, under radar delivery, these guys know how to do it right. Yet it is the lines and curves we are captivated by the most. Out of the box approach to drawing shapes is absolutely incredible and it reflects a very talented group behind the project.
New and far from being a household name even in native Germany, Meyer frames have quite the following here in San Francisco. Your usual suspects, architect/designer crowd is always there first to faint over the stunning Reindeer horn temples, of course, but it is amazing to see in action how universal the good design can be and how it can affect people who don't necessarily come in contact with beautiful objects on a daily basis.

oy, i was in town last weekend right before you got these in. Do you have frankfurt, amsterdam or stuttgart in grey transparent? What kinda price range are we talking? I'm thinking about these for an optical sun frame.

The only transparent frame we were able to get in was model San Francisco. With good lenses, you are looking at about $650-700.

Any plans to get other models in? The Stuttgarts hanging in that photo look great.

Berlin is out of stock right now. Probably after all the dust settles after all the trade shows...
