Beautiful Rectangular Eye Frames inspired by Hemingway's WW1 love story.
The Farewells, with their distinctive Italian design are bold and sensitive; and like its name sake, a stand out best seller. The frames come in two colors: enamel black and enamel tortoise, made of high quality Zyl. In the fabrication process a gleam is embedded that is captured in both the dark top and the crystal clear bottom. The frames shape the face and allow the wearers expressive eyes to be highlighted. These frames are perfect for those that have been told that they have beautiful, expressive and dramatic eyes.
Published in 1929, Hemingway's A Farewell to Arms was set in WWI. The protagonist, Frederic Henry, was an officer in the Italian Ambulance Corps. This love story centers on Henry's romance with Catherine Barkley, as well as the "war is stupid" theme that runs through much of Hemingway's work. The book, though grim and stark, also communicates a true sense of Italy and the artistic and creative soul of the Italian people. Focusers named these frames the "Farewells" because though serious, they too reflect the artistic and creative soul of the wearer.
