Eyewear for the "rare birds" among us.

Illustration of a Black Swan

A Rara Avis comes from the Latin words for "rare bird" and signifies a highly unusual phenomenon, and something quite out of the common course of everyday experience. The phrase was first applied to black swans, prized for their unique and rare beauty. Such are Rara Avis frames, cut deftly in an angular, oval cat-eye shape with a distinctive glossy black covering the front of the rims and bridge, draping a traditional tortoise base. Wear our Rara Avis eyeglasses and draw the same attention from the crowd as the elusive black swan.


These uncommon frames are named Rara Avis, derived from the Latin for "rare bird".
