Peoples from Barbados PFB-08: a Caribbean inspired cat’s eye

With Bajan soul and upbeat energy, Peoples from Barbados style PFB-08 is edgy and free-spirited, crafted with unique bevelling and intriguing laminations, distinctive hand-finished traits of the Caribbean label. The cat’s eye design was inspired by Hartman’s closest girl friends in her community as a complement to their relaxed, and colorful sense of style.

Oversized glasses: Peoples from Barbados

As the eyewear brands hail “oversized” as a key trend for ’21, the Peoples from Barbados PFB-16 is one that fits right in, while preserving an individual structured statement design that’s special to this collection, born in Barbados. Modelled by blue-eyed Barbadian beauty Jalicia Nightengale and photographed by Jaryd Niles Morris, the stylish coloring of the frame originates from the traditional wooden “chattel” house after which it is named.

Peoples from Barbados: Bajan Soul

NYC events, new stockists in Miami and a special tour of Jamaica. Just a few of the things that optician/designer Alicia Hartman has been busy with since we last caught up with her in April. And with that has come some glamorous new eyewear styles, as well as plenty of colourful sunnies.

We first met Alicia in 2018 (and before that we had been in touch via social media for some years). Now she is one of the most successful opticians to launch her own collection, which includes models suited to sun or ophthalmic lenses. The new model PFB 13 (above in red/tortoise effect), pictured on a girl at eyeQ Jamaica, offers a combination of glamorous elegance with the rich effect of the high-end acetate; it has a particularly individual look when glazed with optical lenses.

Unique screwless flat stainless-steel hinges and beveling techniques, along with signature end tips matching the fronts have the effect of deliberately complementing the matte finishes of these designs – a detail achieved by special lamination techniques and Japanese polishing – no corners are cut in this very chic detailing. The frames can be glazed as opticals or fitted with a subtle gradient mirror and flash lens, just right for beach wear and summer parties.
