ESE’S JAGUAR EYEWEAR BOWS SOPHISTICATED FALL COLLECTION

ESE’S JAGUAR EYEWEAR BOWS SOPHISTICATED FALL COLLECTION

Eastern States Eyewear has announced the release of its fall optical collection in Jaguar Eyewear. Comprised of frames from both the brand’s classic and youthful Spirit line the collection excels in providing sharp, masculine, and sophisticated designs to men seeking stylish designs with the right touch of sophistication. One method that this is achieved is through a mix of materials including stainless steel, pure titanium, and acetate. Models 33089 and 33091 utilize these combinations through a horn themed acetate insert within their temples. Matted to provide an extra touch of class, this work cleverly provides its wearers with diverse coloration without being too showy or aggressive to scare off more conservative consumers. Also notable is a not to vintage styling. Model 31706 does so with its deep shape and keyhole bridge while the 33706 presents a round metal shape with an acetate layer on its browbar. Both offer a modern twist on classic color themes such as horns, demi ambers, and tortoises providing a diverse mix of fashion and color contrasts. As always, all Jaguar frames are produced by the German based Ferdinand Menrad GMBH. For more information please contact Eastern...

Tura Inc: The Modernization of Tura

Tura Inc: The Modernization of Tura

One of the most prevalent, yet challenging, tasks in today’s ever-evolving fashion landscape, is adapting to the “now”. Conscious of this notion, Tura understands that often times what worked yesterday, might have to be modified to be successful today. Conversely, one might argue that equally important is maintaining the essence of what made Tura appealing in the first place. Tura has straddled both ideologies because in theory, both are correct. Since our inception in 1938, Tura has been a fixture in the eyewear industry as a pioneer of jewelry centric eyewear; the first to adorn frames with jewels & gold filigree. Yesterday, Tura was a brand that catered primarily to a woman, age 50 and up. But today, Tura is taking a new different approach. Today, Tura has widened the scope to embrace not only our original audience, but a younger, high fashion woman. Tura is consciously modernizing the brand from both a marketing and product standpoint. And, if you look closely, you’ll see that an emphasis on the new generation of the Tura woman is at the crux of our newer designs. As Tura’s Senior Brand Manager, Julie Allen, explained, “when a brand expands its audience, it...
