Sama Eyewear

When I saw this frame at MIDO, I marked in my notes ‘great style’ – it really is! Handmade in Japan, the frame also has an intriguing provenance.  Designers Shelia and Ross Vance were inspired by the beauty and mystique of ancient Egyptian culture and design.  The soft, oversized shape of Gossip is in layered acetate exclusive to Sama.  The temples, in titanium, represent a “Breast Plate” worn by a queen of the sun, and constructed with state of the art laser cutting.  Another special feature is the reversed plating, with the outside and inside of the temples in different colours.  It’s a dashing, glamorous frame, and especially beautiful in this deep, intense aubergine shade. www.samaeyewear.net JG
