If you remember from my very first blog post on Opti 2019, I said as well as the tour in the start up area (the Opti Boxes), we also did another tour in the afternoon of the Opti top 7 brands. The next few blog posts are based on my favourite 3 from the second tour.
First up we have Frost. First of all, can I just say how much I love the founder of Frost Eyewear, Marion. She is possibly the happiest person I have ever met, she has got such a happy and uplifting energy about her. I love her as a person and I am also a fan of her as a frame designer.
Frost eyewear actually exhibited in the UK back in 2014 when 100% Optical was a brand new show. I actually met Marion back then and fell in love with her warm energy. Her entire collection really reflects on her happy personality, they’ve all got her stamp on them, in terms of fun shapes and colours. If you like to inject a touch of colour to your eyewear then Frost is the brand to check out. The colour combinations seemed endless and when it was all laid out on the table during the tour, it felt like I was in the middle of summer surrounded by beautiful and colourful flowers.
Marion really experiments with shapes and textures too, as well as using a combination of materials such as metal and acetate. No matter what the material is, the creativity is always at the heart of the design. What I also like about Frost is that all their frames are handmade in their headquarters. This means Marion and her team have full control of the frames from start to finish which I feel it is a very nice touch.
Personally, I loved the colour combinations of the frames because I like colour, I’d count myself as a colourful person. The design of the frames are fabulous, you can see the creative flare of Marion. Her goldsmith and jewellery design background really show through. The quality of the frames is also high, Frost have stockists worldwide but I know in the UK, they are a bit harder to get hold of because I think in general the UK is a bit scared of all the colour.
However, if you have been dying to find something new to wear and something that is still quite rare in the UK, check out Frost right here.
