Porsche and Mercedes-Benz draw auto fans from around the world to the historical city of Stuttgart. Acclaimed botanical gardens and a rich cultural legacy are among numerous reasons to visit Germany’s sixth largest city. For eyewear enthusiasts, a visit to Die Brillenmesse – held at prestigious Motor World and chock-a-block with fabulous vintage autos – is postively another reason to be in Stuttgart on October 15th and 16th.
Die Brillenmesse enables visitors to view beautiful eyewear from international, independent labels. Award winning designer Adrian Marwitz will present his refined collection – crafted in titanium – that unites high tech implements with traditional spectacle production. The Loving Strangers collection includes streamlined designs for men and women. In the above photo – he wears Lover 9 in loving grey, and his companion wears Lover 7 in loving Bordeaux. www.adrianmarwitz.com
Danish state-of-the art craftsmanship is expressed in Orgreen’s innovative designs. Among the frames being presented in Stuttgart is Lupita – a striking shape in matt aqua titanium with sandblasted gold sides. Unique and chic! www.orgreenoptics.com
Italian artisan detailing is found in all Blackfin designs, and San Diego for men displays a distinctive personality with its large, angular lenses and bold double bridge. Super sophisticated in a sleek grey/black combo. www.blackfin.eu
The Denali frame by You Mawo derives its inspiration from the seven mountain summits. The North American Mountain was originally called Mount McKinley. However, last year, the name of the mountain was changed as a tribute to the original settlers – and now proudly called – Denali. The ultra light You Mawo frame that pays homage to this natural mountainous wonder is composed with polyamide and weighs only fourteen grams. You Mawo is an innovative German brand and one to watch. www.youmawo.com For more details on the Stuttgart show with the exciting roster of independent labels, visit www.diebrillenmesse.de JG
