THIS YEAR, I learned that there is a frame out there for everyone. That was not the case in the ’80s, when I was a third-grader picking out my first pair of Barb-in-Stranger-Things glasses. In 2016 the options are endless — we can choose any shape, style, color or material we want. And soon we will have even more choices as technology — 3-D printing! — continues to develop. Here are a few of the many frames that made us look twice this year.

Striking stainless steel model OFRA is named after popular Israeli singer Ofra Haza, a rare crossover star who released 16 gold and platinum albums and found fans among Israeli and world audiences alike. These shapely stunners sing.

Blake Kuwahara

Recently awarded the coveted SILMO d’Or award, model kahn seamlessly incorporates an inner acetate frame in a round silhouette with an outer frame with an angular profile. It’s a proprietary process that takes more than two months to complete, but it is obviously worth the wait.

Coco Song

Do you in model you soon, which leads the charge for color (with a capital C) and eyewear as jewelry. Fabulous contrasting colors enhanced by a floral motif, an enamelled cross hinge and silk inserted between the layers of acetate, make these a conversation piece.
