Designer in Focus: Linda Farrow

Designer in Focus: Linda Farrow

No doubt you’ve heard the name Linda Farrow – it’s been on the wind since 1970 when she became an overnight success with the style-focused jet set crowd for her pioneering vision of artistic eyewear design. The definition of chic, Farrow’s innovation lies in her ability to bridge unconventional with elegant, and range from subtle to offbeat, using resilient materials and paying close attention to the finest details to create unique, infinitely wearable pieces.

Victoria Beckham: Reigning Queen of the “Bigger is Better” Trend

Fashion trends are notoriously fickle. As soon as you find a look that you love, we’re all on to the next trend. Is it micro-frames? Is it tinted lenses? Is it vibrant acetates? Is it metals? Right now the answer is: YES – to all of them. It’s a season rife with stylish extremes from one end of the spectrum to the other. It’s an “anything-goes” moment that we’re living for. One of the extremes we’re loving most right now is the Bigger Is Better trend we’re seeing in optical and sunglass frames. A few of our designers are dipping their toes in the oversized arena, but the title of reigning Queen of the trend, in our minds? None other than frame-ophile Victoria Beckham.

The Power of Pink Glasses

The Power of Pink Glasses

Out of all the dramatic frames we have at HOLLY Eyewear, one special pair has become something of a mascot for us. If you’ve been in, there’s no doubt you’ve seen them featured in our glass case. You might have even tried them on yourself just to see what special effect they might have on you.

 

Designer In Focus: KREWE

KREWE is the independent designer we’ve come to rely on for hosting a creative eyewear party, whether for optical or sunglass frames! The 6-year old New Orleans-based eyewear company has given us plenty of reasons for that! Founded by New Orleans native, Stirling Barrett, when he was just 23 years old, the company’s vision is to be an independently owned, independently-minded source of creative collaboration. And that vision continues to grow and surprise us every season.

Anyone who wears glasses can tell you that when it comes to matching up eyewear with evening wear the struggle. is. real.

And the super chunky geek-chic frames that look so sharp during the day really take the shine off your nighttime sparkles. This is where an Eyewear Wardrobe comes in handy. But if you haven’t started building yours yet, never fear. We’re focusing in on eyewear for evening in this blog post to help you elevate your eyewear from everyday necessity to evening accessory.

Designer in Focus: Thierry Lasry

Designer in Focus: Thierry Lasry

It’s been 13 years since Thierry Lasry introduced his first collection of avant-garde eyewear - but the collection constantly surprises and delights us with its innovation and flair. Though his eponymous line has been adorning the faces of the social Elite for over a decade, it’s only been in the past few years that the Thierry Lasry brand has truly skyrocketed, largely because fashion trends have taken a while to catch up to Lasry’s unwavering dedication to his design muse: the ‘80s.

Keeping Up With The Sharmas

You know we love any excuse to hang out with the people we love most. While the Sharma ladies might find all kinds of reasons to pull up to each other’s homes for a solid few hours of hang time, Mother’s Day is the perfect reason to get together and celebrate the triangle of power that these three women represent.

Holly Eyewear takes NYC

This year, the NYC Eyewear Expo was bigger and better than ever. Between the gorgeous new looks, the incredible booths, and the very glamorous chauffeured cars (thank you Kering!), Holly set off for five intense days of meeting, greeting, and scouting the very best designer eyewear out there.

The company built its reputation for quality through the work of each individual craftsperson who created their own business within the Masunaga cooperative.
