When it’s comes to eyewear I am pretty sure most well known brands are from countries like France, Italy and Germany, basically somewhere in Europe. But what if I said there is an American designer who also designs some pretty damn stylish, high quality frames. Shocked? did I just hear a gasp?

John Varvatos is the name you need to know. So what are they all about? The brand started in 2000 with a collection of tailoring and sportswear for men and even now the brand only designs for men. As well as clothing, it now has a whole heap of men’s lifestyle products such as footwear, watches, bags, fragrances, eyewear (of course) and much much more! For us ladies, if you want to dress up your man, that is the shop you should head to because it has everything to dress your man up just like we used to with our Ken dolls (or is that just me!?).

For the spring/ summer 2012 range, John Varvatos is working a Casual Luxury feel combined with the Rock ‘n’ Roll look. We can expect five new styles for the optical range and six new styles for the sunglasses range. For the sunglasses range expect details such as laser engraving on the bridge and bevel of the temple, temples wrapped in leather and slick gradient acetate. As for the optical range look out for things like brushed metal temples, signature guitar-head hinges and charismatic Chianti colour option.
