Friday, 25 July 2014

OcclesOccles are the brainchild of couple, Hugh Robertson and Lynne McLeod. They first had the idea for Occles in 2011 whilst lying on a beach in Greece. Struggling to rest their eyes in the strong sunlight, they looked around and noticed various methods being employed by fellow holidaymakers to block out the sun's glare. The most common seemed to be a towel over the head! They knew at that moment, there had to be a better way.

Three years on, following extensive market research, and huge efforts to perfect the design and comfort of the product, Occles is really taking shape. Occles are patent (pending) with a registered design and a trademark for the brand. Occles are unique bridgeless eyeshades that wrap around the head and block out all ambient and uv light. The silicone rubber eye seals ensure a comfortable fit and the design helps prevent panda/raccoon eyes.

It is the company's mission to enable you to protect your eyes from the discomfort of UV and strong ambient light, and also reduce eye fatigue. Occles Ltd is a company registered in the UK. Occles is currently undertaking an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to raise funds. More info at:

It's no secret that theo adores its hometown of Antwerp in Belgium. It's a lively, creative city where theo feels right at home. Antwerp is also a major world port a fact that took theo as a new source of inspiration for the latest eyewear collection. Royers, Nassau and Siberia are three of the bridges that give access to the harbour not far from the city centre. Bridges which have now been immortalised as eyewear.

theo Antwerp Bridges Collectiontheo The Bridges of Antwerp

The 'Antwerp Bridges' collection combines acetate, stainless steel and nylor in a unique way. The stainless steel core is enveloped in acetate. The temples stay flexible thanks to the flex-system developed in-house at theo and they flow seamlessly in a single line. Just like a bridge, these glasses look heavy on the top but open and airy on the bottom. Each model is available in 8 – fairly subdued – colours. But they're 100% unmistakable theo thanks to the abundant use of our own acetate plates.
