Hall of Frames Zurich

Pace Setting Eyewear in Switzerland

Swiss, German and Austrian opticians visited the recent Hall of Frames event in Zurich – the only platform for designer frames in Switzerland. Kongresshaus was the amicable location, affording a quintessential view of Zurich’s beautiful lake and mountains. Co-coordinator Nathanael Wenger said; “This simple and elegant show is a ‘must go’ for all boutique opticians, and it is also a good opportunity to meet up with colleagues and friends.

“New brands presented for the first time in Zurich included: Edwardson from Geneva; Tom Rebl and Retrosuperfuture from Italy; Caroline Abram and Anne et Valentine from France; and Claire Goldsmith and Oliver Goldsmith Sunglasses from the UK.” Wenger noted that the diversity in style, sizes and colours is huge – “there are almost no limits in every direction. We could see an increasing number of brands with oversized, fine rimmed metal frames, from Coblens, Orgreen, and Götti – this could be the next big trend.”
