Inspiring Line Up for 2013 Edition
1st September 2013 Entries are arriving daily from eyewear designers who are participating in The Hall of Frames / Eyestylist Newcomer Awards. The annual event is a unique collaboration with Hall of Frames and Eyestylist.com. This year, the entrants include Claire Goldsmith and the CG Legacy Collection that launched in 2010, designed by Claire Goldsmith and Jesse Stevens.
Goldsmith (above) a British designer, says of the collection: “I prefer contemporary versions of classics. We do have one signature design feature though – a beautiful bevelled temple – a characteristic that follows through all our styles, for both men and women. I’d always rather brand through design than anything else.” www.clairegoldsmith.com Photo: Claire Goldsmith by Phil Birnbaum
Paris based entry Amaury Cagniard, who launched his collection in 2012, defines his eyewear style as “Original, subtle, but not eccentric lines, shapes and colours, and procures a feeling of harmony around a well-balanced design.” www.amaury.eu.com
At Eyestylist and Hall of Frames, we endeavour to encourage and support new eyewear talent, and are delighted with the gifted responses. The winner will be announced in Stuttgart in October. www.hallofframes.ch JG
