Persol, an Italian Eyewear company founded in 1917 to make advanced lenses for Italian fighter pilots, has come a long way in its almost century long history. From the aviation experts of the First World War to the celebrities of yesterday and today, Persol has never lacked in aficionados. Lets take a look at some of Persol’s biggest fans.
George Clooney looks great in his Persol 2243-s, but there’s no suprise there.
His Ocean’s 12 costar, the timeless Julia Roberts, also loves Persols, helping to break the “boys only” image.
New Hollywood loves Persol too. Here’s Justin Timberlake bringing sexy back in his favorite pair.
Lindsay Lohan, America’s favorite hot mess, covers her hangover grimace in this popular Persol frame.
Orlando Bloom wears the same frame, but in a lighter color. And with less hopelessness on his face.
Even James Bond wears Persols.
Lastly, the most iconic Persol wearer, and my persomal favorite, Steve McQueen.
No matter what your look or style, Persol has a frame for you. Come find it at our Trunk Show this Saturday, October 22, 2011.

This week we are celebrating Chrome Hearts eyewear and the people who love them. This brand, founded in 1988 by Richard and Laurie Stark, originated making motorcyle gear, but as their fanbase widened, so did their collections. This bold and trendy brand is a favorite of both the rich and famous, and the famously rich.
Let’s start with Katie Holmes. Half of one of America’s favorite Hollywood power couples, Katie looks every bit the part in these rock star shield sunglasses.
Heidi Klum, our favorite German import, bundles up against the cold and protects her eyes with a sporty Aviator style frame. Take a style tip from the queen of the runway and don’t let a little snow rob your style!
Justin Chambers, one of the resident heart-throbs of Grey’s Anatomy, was caught dressing down in his Chrome Hearts “Erected.” Snow or Sun, keep those eyes covered!
Dr. 90210 (Robert Ray), the king of Hollywood cosmetic surgery, has been seen wearing his “Beast 3″ while working his rounds. Chrome Hearts go well with his stethoscope, don’t they?
Even the Country world is getting in on the Chrome Hearts trend. LeAnn Rimes has been crooning country toons since her early teenage years, but she’s proven she has more edge than we thought. Seen here in the “Double Tip.”
In case you need a second opinion, we have yet another doctor (albeit fictional) in our list. Omar Epps, one of the stars of House, is often seen in his Chrome Hearts glasses.
In addition to two fictional doctors and a real plastic surgeon, lets round out the list with a fictional plastic surgeon. Nip/Tuck’s Julian McMahon has been spotted in some great Chrome Hearts sunglasses.
Chrome Hearts most loyal Hollywood devotee? Paris Hilton. Here she is in her favorite, the “Queenie”
Intrigued? Come out to our trunk show this Saturday, October 8, 2011, and check out the entire collection, including the newest Fall releases! RSVP on our Facebook page.

l.a. Eyeworks, the brainchild of two women who couldn’t find the funky eyeglasses they craved, has attracted it’s share of celebrities over the years. From the first famous ad in Andy Warhol’s Interview, to the famous devotees of today, this independent eyewear company has framed some pretty famous faces.
Andy Warhol was indispensible in the creation of the image of this company, and it’s no wonder. l.a. Eyeworks is perfect for the Factory.
Elvis Costello was spotted in his Blue Abbey frame, which is a fairly traditional shape, taken to the next level with that great, funky color.
Ben Stiller’s Mason is a perfect fit for him, and brings an extra something special.
Elton John is one of the biggest fans of l.a. Eyeworks and has several pairs in his collection. He even wore a pair to his wedding. Here he is in his O’Connell frame.
Check out the pattern on these bold beauties worn by Madonna.
A pattern like that will get you noticed.
Even Justin Beiber has the fever for his l.a. Eyeworks frames. Here he is wearing Bent in a commercial for the MTV VMAs.
The evidence is clear. If you want to be framed by eyewear as unique as you are, be sure to check out the l.a. Eyeworks Trunk Show on Saturday, October 1, 2011 at SF Optics featuring the most recent Fall ’11 collection!

Tonight, the long awaited Lifetime premiere of “Who is Clark Rockefeller?” starring Eric McCormack as Clark Rockefeller and Sherry Stringfield as his wife and successful business consultant Sandra Boss, aired. But the true star of the movie are the large black thick rimmed plastic glasses worn by Clark Rockefeller.
For those that don’t recall this true story which not too long ago was the big news in the headlines, Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter, a German man who immigrated to the United States in 1979, used many different aliases over the years, Clark Rockefeller being his most recent. For many years, he kept himself in the circle of high society posing as an heir to the Rockefeller name, during which time he married Sandra Boss and had a child with her. During their recent divorce, he kidnapped his daughter, and the truth about his identity came out. He kept up the longest running con known, but now is in prison for the kidnapping, and is under suspicion for a double homicide from the past when he was living under one of his other aliases.
This whole story makes his choice of glasses that much more interesting. The ‘geek chic’ look that he took on with his frames is quite similar to the look of Clark Kent – Superman’s secret identity. And interestingly enough, the name that Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter made up to go along with the famous surname Rockefeller just so happened to be Clark. Was this his way of associating himself with Clark Kent, a master of multiple identities?
Regardless, the geek chic look is definitely one of the biggest fashion trends right now, and Clark Rockefeller found a great use for the Ray-Ban Wayfarer aside from being a sunglass. Pop out those sun lenses and put in a pair of clear lenses, and now your Wayfarer is the ultimate ‘geek chic’ frame. Whether you want to be a hero disguised as a nerd, or a con man disguised as high society wealth, the Ray-Ban Wayfarer can give you that look.
You can purchase the Ray-Ban Wayfarer here.
Prices include shipping in the United States and applicable taxes.
