Exclusive: Joseph Haver Sunglasses
Tel Aviv’s optical boutique owner/optometrist Joseph Haver launches his second sun collection, with five styles for women and men, inspired by 1960s futurism and 40s geometric purity. Vintage proportions, and a hint of the white ‘Lugene’ sunglasses photographed famously by Horst in 1939, come together with evocative colours – classical tortoise, black and white, or up-to-the-minute grey or red.
In line with the popular direction for bold graphic shapes (squares, circles and octagonals with contrasting lens shapes and flat surfaces), the frames come in Mazzucchelli acetate known for its quality and finish, and are made in a small family factory in Italy. Despite the large, eccentric proportions, the fit is carefully addressed by the optometrist-designer, with temples sculpted through to the end tips for comfort and ease-of-wear. The collection goes online soon at www.joseph-haver.com. Also available at Joseph Haver Optometrist, Tel Aviv, Israel. Photography by Michael Topyol. CN
