New Arrival 3: Limited Edition Paolo Seminara
Just arriving this past Friday are 3 limited edition, HANDMADE combination frames from Italian eyewear designer Paolo Seminara. I know, I know, everybody uses the term "limited edition" nowadays...kind of like limited edition Simpsons slurpee cups at 7-11, but these really are limited. There are only 250 of each model in existence worldwide. That's right I said "worldwide"...and we have 1 of each. These neo-vintage specs are a twist on the classic 60's combo frames with the heavier top bar and thinner bottom rim. From the top we have model Alcazar in a 52 eyesize, color T648 Black Marble. It is numbered #25 of 250. The next 2 are model Aisen, the middle being color T622 Golden Brown, #58 of 250 and the bottom is color T23 Dark Tortoise #53 of 250. Both Aisen models are 53 eyesize and a little larger in circumference to the Alcazar. As usual I've attempted to capture the sheer beauty of these frames and as usual I've come up short. I'd recommend stopping in to see them for yourselves as they will not last long.
