Distinctive, fresh colour pairings, delightful shapes and an underlying joie de vivre in a fresh sunwear concept that celebrates Barbados and its people: PFB (“Peoples from Barbados”) is the work of optician and owner of EYE Q, Alicia Hartman.
The collection, produced with sunglasses designer Eric Jean, is made in Japan, and demonstrates beautiful, functional details including screwless hinges and stainless steel temples and chic shapes that pursue elegance and a fun, colourful aesthetic. Pictured above, model PFB 03 is one of the technical acetate styles highlighted, with end tips that match the front, and a combination of gloss and matt polishing – in soft tropical pink with bright lilac. The round shape of the front has been tweaked to express a modified cat eye, with slightly pointed upper sides, a cute twist.
Launched at EYE Q luxury optical store (Limegrove, Barbados), the PFB frames were shown for the first time at the international optics event Vision Expo East (New York) in the Spring, and will soon be available at selected boutiques in the USA and worldwide.
