Eyekemist Eyewear – New Designer Launch in Paris

21st December 2011 Eyekemist arrived on the designer eyewear scene in August of this year, and already the frames have attracted an international following. Designer Julien Vansteeger’s first collection features ophthalmic frames in quality acetate that shimmer with delicate luminosity. The multi-talented Belgian, who is also a professional photographer and graphic artist, has created five models, in four luscious colours – velvet, brown, smoke, and ruby (above), each with a hint of subdued retro styling. The intriguing company name derives from Vansteeger’s interest in alchemy, and his desire to “create pieces of art”. He’s off to a great start! www.ugdoptics.com JG
