The distinct style of TC Charton Asian Fit Eyewear is everyday luxury. It is a collection created passionately for those who wish to be current, but refuse to be victims of mass fashion. Whether an understated style or one that conveys individuality, each style offers superb craftsmanship and comforts that Asian American eyewear consumers haven’t experienced before: It is a collection made just for them, by one of them.
Why Asian Fit?
The majority of eyewear products available in this market were designed to fit Caucasian features. As Asian facial characteristics are different than those of Caucasians, no wonder Asian Americans have scarce selection of eyewear products that offers them the proper fit. Compared to Caucasians, many Asians have higher cheekbones and lower nose bridges—their hunt for the right eyewear could be a frustrating and tiresome experience.
Eye care professionals would not argue over the long term negative effect that could arise from wearing frames that were not fitted properly, even when most consumers are unaware of the importance of finding the right fit. This is especially true to the Asian Americans—-they are left to believe that, it is simply an impossible task and they have no choice but to settle on products that were not made for them. What’s at stake goes beyond aesthetic: when the frames or sunglasses slide down constantly and aren’t fit adequately, one cannot see properly and could even experience dizziness or headache. As for the sunwear, even when they are wearing one, the tilted sunglasses that sit on their cheeks are not protecting them from the harmful UV ray.
TC Charton Asian Fit Eyewear, the First in North America
The creator of TC Charton, Alexandra Charton, knows firsthand what a daunting experience one must go through due to the scarce selection available to Asian consumers. Thus inspired, after almost two years of trial and error, in the Fall of 2009, TC Charton Asian Fit Eyewear was born.
Alexandra Charton has more than 16 years of extensive optical experience in the creations of countless leading European eyewear brands. From overseeing designs to manufacturing, she has in-depth technical knowledge on how to transform design concepts into alluring and elegant products.
A collection that consists of 19 styles of ophthalmic frames and 14 sunglasses, TC Charton is the first collection that is entirely and ergonomically designed with Asian Americans in mind. Every eye shape, every detail, and the selection of exquisite color palette was created and aimed to compliment the uniqueness of Asian features and skin tones, and to capture the harmonious balance between memorable styles with optimum functionality.
Each of the TC Charton Asian Fit Eyewear frame and sunglasses comes with an exquisite magnetic closure hard case with embossed logo; felt interior; includes a high quality TC Charton microfiber cleaning cloth, and an elegant paper box with printed logo.
Images of models wearing various styles of frames and sunglasses are available in easel back posters of various sizes, as well as a 5 piece mirrored display with laser cut logo. All items are complimentary with the minimum purchase of frames.
