Once nicknamed "the Rolls Royce of opticians" by Zagat, and deemed the best in New York by <i>New York</i> magazine, Morgenthal Frederics has been a leading light in New York's luxury eyewear scene since 1986. The company got its start when optician and entrepreneur Richard Morgenthal bought Frederics, a freestanding Madison Avenue shop, and started turning out high-end, cutting-edge glasses and frames. Morgenthal Frederics has since become an eyeglasses empire — celebrated for its handcrafted prescription glasses and luxe sunglasses made of buffalo horn, titanium, and other fine materials. The brand’s sleek, signature shades have framed the famous faces of trendsetters ranging from Julia Roberts to Jay-Z.
Packing for a weekend at the shore is all about getting the most out of your essentials. Think: tees for the beach and bar, a pair or two of shorts that (preferably) double as swim trunks and casualwear, and a scarf in case the sea breeze gets too cool, all of which you’ll find in this sale.
Put on a pair of fashionable Morgenthal Frederics sunglasses and watch your glamour quotient skyrocket. This New York City-based brand has been turning out to-die-for shades since 1986 that are known for their top quality. Choose among sleek black wayfarers, classic metal aviators, round tortoiseshells or oversize rectangular frames.
When he’s not supplying Hollywood’s elite men with impeccably tailored suits (Daniel Craig in SkyFall, Justin Timberlake’s “Suit and Tie” video), Ford manages to make sure every aspect of a man’s style is impeccable. The featured selection of shades plays mostly off the aviator silhouette with sleek military-inspired all metal and plastic designs, as well as a slightly chunkier wayfarer-style sunglass in tortoise shell and all black. If it’s good enough for Bond, it’ll do for your commute to and from work.
Top sunglass brands Oliver Peoples, Robert Marc and Morgenthal Frederics are found on the most recognizable faces around the world. From classic aviators to retro plastics in rich basics and modish colors, find styles that spruce up any spring ensemble.
