O.SIX eyewear, Novembers frame of the month
With the arrival of November comes a new frame for the month. We feature this month’s frame by O.SIX Eyewear, but the actual frame is completely unique, since it comes in a variety of styles, as it is 100% bespoke to your taste. Consider this scenario. If you’re invited to a fabulous work party, you put weeks of planning into your outfit. You wear the same uniform day in and day out at work, so you’re thrilled you get to show off a bit of your style. You’re excited to get dolled up and strut your stuff in this amazing outfit you’ve put so much effort into. You arrive and everyone compliments you on your wonderful style, and how different you look, but then shock horror you find Dennis from accounting is wearing the exact same outfit!!! O.SIX Eyewear is unique and stylish because that’s exactly what people want! I have been in the same position myself and it’s frustrating.
Endless colour combinations
We don’t usually think of eyewear when we hear the word “bespoke”. A completely unique frame that you design is exactly what O.SIX Eyewear offers. Here’s how it works. The process starts with your sight test, during which your optician determines what sort of frame and lenses etc. you need, after which one of our dispensing opticians walks you through the design process step by step. A member of our team will determine the right frame size for you based on your needs. After that, you can choose the style of frame you want, square, round, catseye, aviator, oval, tortoise – the choices are endless. Your next step is choosing the material of your frame, either metal or acetate, matt or glossy. Then it’s time to pick a colour or pattern for your frame, and not just the front, but also the sides of your frame! You now have a completely bespoke frame that no one else has because it’s completely unique to you! I could talk all day about this bespoke experience, but I think we should also explore O.SIX as a brand.
Colour, shape and form
Massimo Mancini founded O.SIX eyewear in 1989 as a way to fill a void during a period when eyewear had a very dull and uncreative aesthetic. In response to this, he earned a reputation for being edgy and unique. In the decade that followed, the company grew tremendously. The reasons for this were largely due to the fact that many other brands relocated their production to other countries in order to lower costs.
O.SIX’s ethos of offering handcrafted frames that excel remains unchanged, giving the wearer a work of art. During manufacture in Italy’s Valle del Cadore, O.SIX frames are rigorously inspected. O.SIX eyewear is still handmade today, using the same techniques as it was back in the 1990s. The range incorporates some traditional and modern shapes, colours, and styles into their collections.
