Proving the Value of a Hand-Crafted Frame

Proving the Value of a Hand-Crafted Frame

Väri Introduces the HM1, HM2 and HM3

March 13 , 2018 – Port Washington, NY – I & Eye Optical, a well-respected, ECP focused, Long Island based eyewear manufacturer and merchandiser with national distribution announces the release of their finely crafted, hand-made frames, the HM1, HM2 and HM3.

These extremely lightweight, hand-finished frames are constructed of superior acetate plastic. To accentuate the frame’s lightweight strength, we’ve added titanium temples that incorporate Väri’s proprietary manufacturing process. This process further enhances the innate integrity of the titanium, creating even greater durability and enabling the frame to remain thin and well-structured while keeping the lenses securely seated in the bevel of the frames.

Väri co-founder, Clif Browner says, “At Vari, our primary focus is comfort and style. That’s a concept we’ve been committed to and have dedicated our entire collection to since day one. Eyeglass wearers shouldn’t have to sacrifice comfort for style.”

Designed in Portugal, the Väri hand-made frames showcase a European flair. Sporting unmatched artisanship, this line of eyewear was designed to be exceptionally comfortable and to feel light and balanced on the nose. “We are committed to the ECP community and we set out to design a collection that would not only be beautiful and well-made, but be truly easy to sell,” says Rich Baum, co-founder of Väri. He adds, “The unique design of our HM1, HM2, and HM3 frames make them a popular choice with both retailers and consumers.”

Spectacular Depth of Color & Translucency in Väri’s  Two Tone Frames the VR8 & VR9

Spectacular Depth of Color & Translucency in Väri’s Two Tone Frames the VR8 & VR9

February 12, 2018 – Port Washington, NY – I & Eye Optical, a well-respected, Long Island based eyewear manufacturer and merchandiser with national distribution releases another pair of cool, comfortable and convertible show stopping frames with its VR8 and VR9 styles.

The VR8 and VR9 offer an amazing translucent front with a solid back color which allows for a spectacular depth of color and creates a two-tone aspect from all angles. The color on our TR90 temples is reversed, solid outside with translucent insides. Incredibly light and resilient. This collection is available in Classic Tortoise and a Black Matte/Gun-metal as well as some beautifully bold colorations such as Passion (Lavender), Palomino, Blue-Jean and Ruby Red. Proving that a “hot look” can get even cooler, the VR8 & VR9 styles are also available with Plano G15 polarized lenses.

The shape of the VR8 is a thin modified rounded square with high temples and saddle bridge. The line features a special, proprietary coloring process. Also making heads turn is the VR9, a thin modified P3 round shape. Most P3 shapes are made with a keyhole bridge, but ours has a unique saddle bridge which adds comfort and creates an ultra-modern interpretation of this classic shape. Both frames are made with highest quality TR90 material with our famous soft tactile feel that is temperature neutral and cool to the touch.

A study in contrasts, Väri playfully experiments with boundaries, offering classic shapes, excellent fit, unparalleled comfort and the chance to step outside traditional lines in an exploration of color. Väri is for real people with real vision. For more information on Väri Eyewear and these two styles, contact info@Värieyewear.com or call 516-580-2723. You can also join the conversation and follow Väri on facebook, twitter and Instagram.
