San Francisco Giants closing pitcher Brian Wilson was a big part of the Giants FanFest this past Friday, February 4, 2012, and a big part of his interviews and presence was his bold pair of shades. The Giants FanFest media day is something that we always look forward to, but imagine our excitement when we saw him wearing his Alexander Daas model power sunglasses! He had just been in the store Wednesday when we styled him into these awesome frames, and also a big and bold pair of purple Mykitas. That’s right, real men wear purple! So check out the interview and try to keep your fear of the beard in check!
Chanel. Just the one word is enough to bring to mind images of timeless beauty, classic style, and groundbreaking fashion. Chanel means many things to many people, but to us, it means flawless style.
Even pushed back on Anne Hathaway’s head, her Chanel 5012′s make a statement.
Britney saves a bad hair day with an awesome shield frame.
Dita Von Teese has such a wonderful vintage style that Chanel works perfectly to compliment. Here she is in her 4180s.
The former Mrs. Woods also has a perfect Chanel frame for her style, sporty but elegant.
Jennifer Love Hewitt uses her Chanel model 5138 to channel Holly Golightly.
Jenny McCarthy, one of our staff favorites, also loves Chanel. In this picture, she’s being styled here at SF Optics by our very own Alex Feldman.
Now for our suprise guest, Lady GaGa. She may not be the most obvious Chanel wearer, but she coaxes a new vibe from a classic frame.
Coco Chanel really knew what she was doing all those years ago, and her legacy has been continued by the wonderful designers that do her work today. For any style, classic and understated, or edgy and fierce, Chanel has a perfect frame. Come see the entire collection, including all the new Fall 2011 styles, at our Private Fitting this Saturday, October 22, 2011.
Starting pitcher for the San Francisco Giants, Barry Zito just stopped in and picked up four pairs of Mosley Tribes. Now that’s what I call a true baller! Three pairs of the Mosley Tribes Bromley (in 3 different colors) for when he’s feeling retro, and a Mosley Tribes Borough for when he’s feeling kinda sporty (like out on the field striking batters out).
Even though this baller is disguised behind his cool shades, we still recognized him, and he was kind enough to take a picture with me (Alex), and Michael.

All Eyes on SF Optics
The streets of the Marina have a small town feel with eclectic charm that still resonates the aura of San Francisco. On a nice day, this is, by far the place to be – and what better way to enjoy a sunny day in the Marina than with a nice pair of sunglasses (or a pair of regular spectacles at that) from SF’s swanky boutique of specs, SF Optics.
The name of the shop may sound like an ordinary place to get some shades, but don’t let the name fool you. Under the tutelage of Alex Feldman, SF Optics has the fashionable mainstays in the world of glasses (Chanel, Gucci, Robert Marc, Prada, Marc Jacobs), but they up the ante and then some with pieces that are unique and will rest on your head with style.
Brands like Gold & Wood combine a sense of nostalgia with urban flair via frames made out of actual wood. But it’s the Ete glasses that will pull you in, the frames encase feathers – yes you heard that right – FEATHERS. But don’t worry, no birds were harmed in making the glasses.
If these uber-chic glasses aren’t your cup of tea SF Optics has a buffet of specs you can choose from including in-vogue Ray Ban wayfarers and aviators of all types (a necessity in everyone’s accessory arsenal). Their newest Oliver Peoples collection is indeed the hot item of the moment. Modeled by their newest poster gal Zooey Deschanel, the new line is sealed with a kiss by the actress – literally. Each pair has a “kiss” from the beautiful Zooey.
