CRAFTED TO BE COOL

Singer-guitarist Lukas Nelson wears model V792 from JOHN VARVATOS. Structured with etched cable wiring and temple tips, this design showcases vintage-inspired teardrop lenses for an edgy, artsy and classically cool look. Available in antique gold and gunmetal. MSRP: $295, remeyewear.com

DASHING DETAILS

OUT OF THE WOODS
Wood is one of the trendiest materials in eyewear today. PROOF EYEWEARr has launched its Rx Collection with strong, prescription-ready six-ply wood designs. The Pledge in Earthtone is an excellent example of the designs in the collection, combining quality, style, value and sustainability in one modern, fashion-oriented product. MSRP: $150 iwantproof.com

PRETTY IN PINK
LUXOTTICA has rolled out its first DISNEY collection, including model 03E1005, a semi-rimless cat’s-eye model featuring Rapunzel. In all, there are eight styles for girls and six for boys, featuring classic Disney characters and sturdy construction for kids: think spring hinges, screwed-on nose pads, and no pesky choking hazards. MSRP: $99, luxottica.com

BACK TO THE FUTURA
n celebration of the company’s 50th anniversary, SILHOUETTE is showing off its Futura Anniversary Collection, an exciting update of the cult favorite first developed in 1974. The original Futura design was made with a stiff and heavy acetate. A 2004 redesign eliminated screws and hinges for a sleek aesthetic, but kept the rim. Now comes this high-fashion, high-tech interpretation — the embodiment of Silhouette’s minimalist design ethic — in an ultramodern frame that is practically weightless. Produced in SPX+, a special polymer composite with elastic qualities, it needs no screws or hinges. MSRP: Contact Silhouette for prices at (800) 223-0180, silhouette.com

MSRP: $450, orgreenoptics.com
