Hello everyone !!!! As many of you know we’ve been last weekend (24-25 September) in Paris to attend SILMO, the world optical fair, it was our third year there and like every year we will do an overview of what we have seen. We try to summarize as much as possible our visit, although we have a lots of pictures and it will not be easy :).
The truth is that we had a great time, we met great people, were with people that we really wanted to see and saw many glasses, but still we could not see many things that we had planned even though we do not stop for a second, as all of us who were there wanted to take every minute, but in just two days is impossible to see everything we had on our list, so we hope you like it and enjoy it a lot with everything we are going to teach you !!!! We start by…
Just enter we find the DZMITRY SAMAL booth, like previous years, we discovered that the French creator continues his most personal spectacular style, mixing geometric figures as anyone. With his”pixel” models as classics, we could see the new extreme and risky forms of collection !! We were accompanied on this visit with Javi and Bea, they got in love with the brand. 🙂
Our second stop was IRRESISTOR, a Korean brand that we already knew by the networks but we had not tasted yet. The truth is that it was a big surprise, we were loved their models with very marked futuristic touches, bold shapes and designs, making this brand one a of the current references. It is impossible for you not go crazy with so many models and so different !!
This year we returned to go through the SUZY GLAM booth, the Dutch firm continues doing glasses with a special touch, they know better than anyone the secret of making the difficult easy, making simple shapes in glasses with luxurious finish. Prescription collection is full of essential basic that coexist with more transgressors models in sun collection.

After Traction Productions we find GABE booth. Formed by 4 young Austrian friends, the firm is not another wood frames brand , the quality of finishing is joined by the incredible exclusive design of the buffalo horn hinges “Snap-Joint” without screws, which allow the user quick and safe change of their rods and a perfect articulation.
