Patty – the P-series

Grotesque Frame KG

I first discovered Grotesque eyewear at SILMO several years ago, and thought what a creative collection. A short while later, I was choosing glasses at one of my favourite Parisian boutiques – Les Créateurs d’Opta in Montmartre. Optician Annette Hoffmann showed me a Grotesque design that was a “must have” , and I still enjoying wear it. The newest designs include the P-series, with Patty shown above. Transparent acetate is engraved with patterns on the frame front, achieved with superfine CNC-milling tools.  The frame captures light beautifully.  It’s available  in four candy colours – including the glossy pink featured – plus black. Grotesque recently opened their unique shop in Germany, housed in two sea containers  (Eyestylist 5 May 2011). Grotesque frames are also available at Créateurs d’Opta and Auerbach & Steele in London  For more information, see JG
