Optimum opticals

Beautiful colours, alluring materials, and imaginative shapes characterise optical frames with optimum style chic. Creative concepts enhance the latest frames from international designers, confirming that eyewear is an elite accessory not only for corrective sight, but fashion flair.

Nathaneal Wenger at Hall of Frames Zurich describes Vitus as: “My absolute favourite design and it works well with men too.” Orgreen Optics is among the artisan independent brands that will be presenting at Hall of Frames Zurich on 07-08 October at Papeiersaal.
