Glasses with a double bridge have been a popular design element in both sunglasses and spectacles since the advent of aviator glasses. And cut-outs have been popular since time immemorial, and not only for décolletés. These detailed cut-outs are a clever method of enhancing the design of the frame without adding any more material. In this blog post, we would like to introduce you to our five favourites with these eye-catching features.
Anyone who talks about pilot glasses has to mention the Ray-Ban Aviator – it’s practically the law. It’s not only amongst sunglasses that this frame style is a favourite. In recent decades, this cult object with a double bridge has made its way from the cockpit of the plane onto police motorbikes and now even into offices. If you want to take the sunglasses vibe of this aviator style into everyday life, you can be confident with a classic pair of Ray-Ban aviator glasses.
Style icon Jérôme Boateng may also have found some inspiration in the popular aviator glasses but these rectangular glasses have a unique touch of their own. While the rim doubles at the bridge, it stops halfway down the frame. As half-rim glasses, the JB Loud leaves the lower part of the lenses uncovered and thus sets a nice accent. This makes the glasses the perfect companion when your outfit needs to be chic and fashion-statement worthy. For added elegance, the gold version is the perfect choice. Perhaps you prefer a rounder frame? Then the JB Jam is just the right pair of double-bridge glasses for you!
These Marc O Polo Glasses are carved from a wood-look plastic, with a grey-brown structured design that gives the frame a wooden look. The elaborate recess makes these wood-look glasses look like filigree and makes them stand out on your face. If you like more subtle styles, you can also choose a soft Havana tone, transparent grey or a crystal colour.
Sylvie Optics Get It
Jérôme Boateng is not the only one of our testimonials who knows what matters when it comes to eyewear design. The power woman Sylvie Meis can be trusted to make clear cuts, but she has found a beautiful compromise with her Sylvie Optics Get it. The corners of the Cat Eye glasses are not cut out, but only cleverly hint at this and still achieve the cut-out effect. These Sylvie Optics eyeglasses not only have corners and edges, but also a double bridge and thus benefit from both design elements.
Linda Farrow LFL 855
A similar approach was taken with this reinterpretation of cat-eye prescription glasses. When Linda Farrow designs cat eyes, they become extravagant! As one of our designer Boutique Brands, Linda Farrow pays a lot of attention to detail, which is the reason for the tinted lens elements on the outer edges of this frame. These stand out in either peach, tobacco, or transparent black, with the combination of black and gold providing stunning contrasts that can’t be missed. Eye-catching at Olympic level!
