ABOUT THE COLLECTION
For each collection a new designer will interpret OH MY EYES. By doing so the brand aims to push the boundaries for eyewear design both technically and aesthetically. The timeless collections will live on regardless of seasons – collection number 2 will be announced early 2019.
For the first collection OH MY EYES has commissioned renowned Italian eyewear designer Marco Galleani who has worked in the eyewear industry since the 1980s for brands such as YSL, Gucci, Prada, Miu Miu and Roberto Cavalli among many others. The first collection consists of six unisex models in two colour combinations each. They are made using the best available Japanese titanium and Italian cellulose acetate, based on cotton and wood.
For OH MY EYES Marco Galleani has created a new technically challenging concept, called The Clip, as a recurring theme throughout the OH MY EYES collection.
“I’ve been inspired by technical details in furniture and lamp design seen in Scandinavian modernism for the first collection for OH MY EYES. The result is ‘The Clip’ – an eyewear construction where the frame is anchored by a special clip that partly replaces the screw,” Marco says.
OH MY EYES are showing as a part of the Accessories and Jewellery Lounge.
OH MY EYES is a luxury eyewear brand from Stockholm, Sweden inspired by Scandinavian modernism, in particular architecture, furniture design, glassware and ceramics with round shapes, warm colours and interesting technical details.
OH MY EYES is built on transparency and quality. We wanted to create the best possible sunglasses, without compromising on quality and style. The sunglasses are handmade in Sabae, Japan, which is where Japanese eyewear production started more than 100 years ago. They are made using the best available Japanese titanium and Italian cellulose acetate, based on cotton and wood. The idea was to create statement pieces yet with a classic finish. We have looked at style icons from the past such as Francoise Hardy, Roy Halston Frowick, Andy Warhol and Mick Jagger, and noticed that their frames looked chunky and luxurious. We wanted to recreate that feeling in a modern interpretation.
