MATERIKA – QUINTESSENTIAL EXPERIMENTATION

 

Testo italiano nel link in calce
January 2020 – Materika expresses absolute purity, the most innovative research and the true essence of materials. The new collection of optical frames reflects the company’s technical competency acquired throughout more than 40 years of experience.

By experimenting with materials, used alone or in combination, it crafts frames whose minimalist design and avant-gardedetails coincide with consumer demand for new forms of modern essentiality.

Look made in Italia applies in-depth research on titanium to derive exceptional performance. Experimentation and many in-house trials produced considerably thinner rims, while maintaining the mechanical strength of this precious metal. As found in style 70590.55.M3, a generously sized round frame with high bridge and lean, clean design. Unisex eyewear that makes a contemporary style statement with restraint.

Extreme experimentation with the same quintessential material is applied to style 70597.54.M4 an ‘invisible’ frame by Materika. Made entirely of pure titanium, the front is just a few hundredths of a millimeter thick and the temples are attached to the end pieces by means of the in-house-developed, proprietary MHS* system. Eyewear for those who demand light weight infused with absolute technical perfection.

Another material of excellence is Alumix, an aluminum alloy with extraordinary qualities, developed in the company’s labs for incomparable lightness. Flexible, malleable and ecological, this material is completely recyclable and hypoallergenic. It is processed in three dimensions and allows for the creation of unique details and refined surface textures. Round and generously sized, style 70578.53.M2 is designed for the woman whose choices fly in the face of trends in favor of stylistic exploration and technical finishings expressed as absolute intrinsic value.

Materika eyewear are designed and crafted entirely in Italy by Look made in Italia.

*The MHS (Materika Hinge System) hinge system was developed in the Look made in Italia Research Lab. It features a temple joint that lends practicality, light weight and excellent performance to the frame’s functionality profile. Distinguished by the iconic minimalist ‘grooved drum’ eyelet, the flared cylindrical structure serves as both a pivot and an extremely practical and immediately useable rim lock.
Once the lens has been mounted, this style requires no maintenance.

A Look Back At The Sama Eyewear and Blue Sphere Foundation Charity Event

Blue Sphere Foundation works to safeguard the planet’s oceans, halting the destruction of threatened marine species and habitats. They go where there are urgent threats and critical resource gaps, and act quickly to establish the necessary groundwork for others to join in. They believe art and media are essential tools to spark curiosity and inspire action, and it is therefore an integral part of everything we do.

The Sam Vance Foundation was established in 1997 by Sheila Vance in memory of her son Sam, who lost his life to heroin experimentation while a nineteen-year-old college freshman at U.C.L.A. Determined to turn her son’s passing into a positive force for change, The Sam Vance Foundation was the motivation behind Sheila Vance’s return to the optical industry and the inspiration behind Sama Eyewear.

The best place to find cult LA brands happens to be nestled elegantly in the heart of Melrose Avenue. Church Boutique is a leader in West Hollywood’s avant-garde fashion culture and it is here at this pricey, exclusive, and contemporary shrine you will discover the most understated yet stimulating environment for fashionistas. Attracting celebrities, stylists and photographers from all over the world, Church offers clothing from over 50 cutting edge designers that hang from old pipes, rope, and splintered wood.
A lot has been said about Loree Rodkin… This Global Nomad has had three immensely successful careers all by accident! Rodkin, born in Chicago, was raised on a heavy diet of aesthetics. Her three careers have ranged from designing the homes of rock stars, Alice Cooper, Rod Stewart amongst a host of other rock glitterati. She then became a talent manager, launching the careers of young unknowns —Brad Pitt, Robert Downey Jr. and Sarah Jessica Parker to name just a few. Loree’s passion for making jewelry landed her Elizabeth Taylor as her first client. Since those early days Rodkin has gone on to design intricate pieces for such icons as Madonna, Steven Tyler, Elton John, Cher (her best friend) and countless others. She also had the honor of designing First Lady Michelle Obama’s inaugural jewelry; those pieces now reside in the Smithsonian’s permanent collection.

Actress, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Maggie Q has always been at the forefront of the fight against animal cruelty and global warming. In fact, on World Animal Day, The Body Shop and CrueltyFree International were joined by actress, activist and entrepreneur Maggie Q to bring 8.3 million signatures against cosmetic animal testing to the United Nations Headquarters in New York City to create a global framework to end animal testing while advancing the United Nations’ sustainable development agenda.

On July 31, everyone came together at Spring Place Beverly Hills  to raise money for a great cause. We thank everyone who donated, worked and volunteered at this event and made a a success.

Seraphin – Seasonal Shapes

 

Ogi Eyewear is happy to share their most recent collection from Seraphin: five brand new frames, each brazen with detail and unique hues, very appropriate as we move tantalizingly closer to the fall season.

Image

Arbour

Deep in enriching color varietals, the Arbour radiates an almost heart-stopping presence. A sharply winged shape reveals carved edges that lead to a fleck of metal within the hinge piece. Entrancing in every detail, the Arbour invites any for a closer look.

Image

Hanley

We’re heating things up with the Hanley. With the acute application of heat to the rim, a purposeful twisting pattern finds itself concocted into the brow. Complete with Seraphin’s designer stamped hingepiece, the Hanley never stops innovating.

Image

Knoll

True vintage experiences a rebirth in the Knoll, nodding to the utilitarian design of the late 1920s when minimalism and metal reigned supreme. Properly built up shielding around the rim adds history and sophistication whereas the universal sized bridge creates a comfortable fit, lending the Knoll to all aspects of Seraphin’s key design elements.

Image

Nash

The Nash brings a full smattering of design choices and stylistic moves to the latest Seraphin collection. From patternly temples and micro acetate tips to the reinforced acetate brow line, the Nash tests the limits of forward-thinking design.

Image

Opus
Embracing size and scale, the aptly-named Opus swells with grandeur in its robust size and seemingly sheer make up. Thickly crafted acetate leaves an open canvas for deep and brooding hues, evoking artistic inspiration throughout the Opus.
