Wires was established in 2017 by Yair Neuman, a London-based designer, under the creative direction of model/actress Lily Cole. “Wires combines technologies inspired by ancient African wire artistry and 3D printing,” says Yair. The 2018 collection is modular with one foundational wire frame that fits all seven lens rim designs. “The lenses and rims can be easily switched so you can change the look of your glasses without needing to buy a whole new pair,” says Cole. Unisex with a patented invisible folding mechanism and lightweight polished stainless steel frames, the 2018 collection includes seven designs in different colors and finishes. The 180° White Matte Silver on her and 180° White Brass on him. Featuring Carl Zeiss polycarbonate lenses, the collection is Rx’able.
$70 (additional interchangeable rims)
