Converse reveals its latest creations for Spring/Summer 2010, an inventive assortment of optical frames for men, women and kids. Designed with quality materials and meticulous attention to detail, Converse Eyewear is suited to those that demand an eyewear look suited to their independent spirit.
The Converse women’s eyewear collection is as individual as the women who wear it. Look Out has a strong artisan element; the temples are created by paper-transfer in a subtle animal print pattern, each one handmade so that no two are alike. This multi-step, time consuming process creates a one-of-kind pattern with rich variations in color. To see this process in action go to http://remeyewear.com/foiled/
Spare Change and Dark Smoke employ another special process: crafted from handmade acetate, they are hand-polished to create an incredible textured wood finish. Spare Change has a modified oval shape with very vintage roots, and is vaguely reminiscent of downtown musicians or coffeehouse writers. Dark Smoke is a rectangular shape, with both styles featuring five-barrel hinges, and rivets on the front and the temple. These unisex frames, like the Converse Chuck Taylor, are so classic they work for everyone.
The men’s collection is inspired by the all-time American favorite pastime- the ROAD TRIP. Enroute has a cut-out grill temple design which not only looks cool, but creates natural flexibility and comfortable fit. Merge is a frame that looks good on just about any guy, and is created with double laminate zyl, adding a bold slice of color to the interior.
Converse Youth dedicates itself to the freedom of personal expression that today’s younger generation demands with 7 new frames. I’m Telling is a simple stainless steel frame with a zyl tip, with cutouts and dynamic design on the temples. Did Too has custom chevron temple designs for that that head-turning Converse look. Pretty Please and Why are both crafted from double laminate zyl, adding a pop of spontaneous color when you least expect it.
