Transitions Optical x Matsuda Eyewear

Tuesday, 16 September 2014

Something I haven't mentioned much on the blog is the fact that I am a wearer of glasses (it's not exactly a secret though). Although they are one of the best accessories as they are often worn all the time, I have the talent of being able to forget I even wear them. However, when I was told about the collaboration between Transitions Optical and Matsuda Eyewear, I thought it was about time to touch on the subject by showing you guys the collection.

All of Matsuda's frames are designed, made, and hand engraved in Japan, ensuring each pair is of the highest quality. Collaborating with Transitions, the pioneer in light management, then makes for an incredibly practical and stunning outcome. The collection has perfectly combined contemporary design with vintage influences, and I'm obsessed with both the black and grey pairs (first and third pictures).

What do you think about these six frames? Have you found any collaborations that you love lately?

Cheers guys,


  1. I love glasses and always wish I had a need to wear them! A change of frame shape can make a huge difference to a face. So it can be here to get used to someone changing theirs, a bit like a haircut but perhaps even more fundamental, since we apparently use eye shape and appearances more than anything else to identify a face. Personally I prefer rectangles like you are currently wearing but I might get used to round ones too, if they are week enough made!

  2. where it is possible to get frames from first photo?
