Introducing Carlottas Village

Image
We are proud to introduce another new addition to our product lineup here at Paris West. We always have had great success with Danish frame imports...Lindberg, Orgreen and Pro Design are still among our best selling lines. (I think the only unsuccessful Danish import was my short lived marriage to a Dane back in the 90's...but hey you can't win them all).
 Carlottas Village is the creation of Danish designer Charlotte Leith and her husband Bo. We are currently operating a pop-up shop (a fancy way to say that they're on our shelves) featuring their beta-titanium line. These amazingly light and durable frames are colorful and simple in their design and feature Charlottes custom designed rubber temple tips.
There are plenty of unique shapes for both men and women, check out their website at carlottasvillage.dk or better yet stop in and try them on in person.

Now in stock: New Etnia Barcelona and IGreen.

Ok ... this winter has been lame. Cold, freezing rain, snow... did I mention the cold? Polar Vortex, there's 2 words we could have really lived without knowing... but there is a bright side. Spring is coming. Really...they can't cancel it. (whomever "they" are)
 In order to be prepared for the Great Thaw of 2014 we've been busy buying LOTS of HOT new frames for whenever everyone ends their hibernation and comes out of the house. (what else are we gonna do? go outside??)
 2 collections have already found their way through the blizzard(s) and into our cold trembling hands... one newcomer: IGreen (pictured above with the gratuitous beach shot)- available downtown and one old friend: Etnia Barcelona (pictured below)- available downtown and in Bel Air.
 Both collections are reasonably priced and extremely fun and colorful...
so if you're brave then sled...I mean skate...I mean stop by and try a few on... our heat IS working. I promise.
