Designed in Italy, the Birmingham eyeglass frame brings a continental panache to a classic wayfarer shape that Americans have long embraced. The roomy rounded square shape of the lenses allows for the installation of multifocal prescription lenses or simply a generous field of single vision.
With durable plastic construction, the Birmingham is a modest version of this classic shape. The temples are thin and do not obstruct peripheral vision. The browline bears a flattering curve as it extends a bit at the outer edges. Linear temple pieces are embued with added durability due to the metal core. Gently sloping nasal protrusions caress the bridge of the nose for those long days that take us from business meetings to the gym.
The color choices have a definite contemporary swagger. Naturally there is a classic satin Black offering. The Blush Wine and Navy choices have a crystal version of these hues that glows from behind an opaque surface. This makes these vivid hues seem like a fascinating hint of iridescence rather than a blast of color. The Birmingham frame is the perfect blend of European runway chic and American classic taste.
