Ogi Eyewear's Seraphin collection announces five new men's ophthalmic frame introductions for fall season 2009. Additions to the Seraphin collection closely mirror the latest trends in men's eyewear, defining Seraphin as an iconic eyewear powerhouse. The new collection embodies the essence of luxury while keeping its commitment to affordability. New styles include the Garfield, Drew and Quentin. The new frame and sunglass designs (16 in total, which includes men's, women's, ophthalmic and suns) received a glowing reception at this year's Vision Expo West in Las Vegas, NV. They are now available through national and international retailers.
Within each frame lies a unique story that exemplifies the characteristics of the model and validates its place in the collection. Of the many statement pieces released in the latest chapter, the Garfield is noteworthy for its aluminum casting, creating the effect of a light, old-world aesthetic. The accent molding found on the Garfield was influenced by the beveled exterior of a café in Paris where designer Dave Spencer sketched out the frame in a flash of inspiration.
Another outstanding model in the new collection is the Drew. The Drew expresses a feeling of someone with a keen intellectual perception of fashion. Each color utilizes the finest handmade acetates from around the world in conjunction with a lightly textured titanium temple. The Drew's charm and warmth is reminiscent of an elderly French taxi driver combined with the spirit of a young contemporary artist. The frame quietly demands attention, while maintaining an element of sophistication and timelessness.
