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.
