Gold Tear-Drop Shaped Frames with Tortoise Shell Rim Overlays
While traveling in southern Spain, one of our frame stylist was struck by the eclectic elegance of the magnificent 13th century Moorish palace, Alhambra at Granada. As she explored its lush arcades and hallways, she was captivated by the intricately decorated arches supported by slender, ornate columns, the elaborate floor mosaics and arabesque carvings. Inspired, she found a quiet niche in the gardens and sketched out what became our Andalusians eyewear.
Intricate detail work on these frames were inspired by architecture in Andalusia, Spain.
Named for the Spanish community known for its historic and geographic beauty, Andalusians feature long, tapered golden temples adorned with arabesque swirls and curls that extend over the hinge. Gold-rimmed lenses are highlighted with copper and marmalade tortoise shell, and connected with a thicker than normal bridge suggestive of the palace arches. You needn't be a mighty caliph to wear Andalusians. But the opulent motifs of these eyeglasses do speak to your refined sense of taste and style.
