You may know Silhouette as minimalist. Great if you're looking for eyewear that doesn't distract from the face or your overall appearance. Some may even say rimless frames "age" a person. WRONG! Silhouette brings retro, minimal, architectural like shapes in stylish and trend setting new styles.
Look, I've been an optician for nine years and I've seen trends come and go. The one constant has been rimless. The idea that you have a lens with zero frame, really opens up the possibilities to be super creative and original with your style.
Why play though, when the shape already rocks? Small is back and here's why you should go out and get yourself a pair!
Jen Ortiz updates us on what's new at Lux... and with Essilor. Transitions light adaptive lenses step up their color game with four new Transitions Signature Colors and six available Transitions XTRActive colors with mirrors! What does that mean for you? An opportunity to define your individual style. Listen here.
We are excited to announce our upcoming Podcast, Styled By Lux, going live Tuesday October 16th! This show is a fun and interesting podcast focusing on getting the word out to you as consumers and fellow optical nerds about what's real, current, and relevant in the luxury optical world.
Your Styled By Lux host, Jen Ortiz, has been an optician for eight years in San Francisco's Bay Area. She is passionate about combining style with functionality by helping people see, and building confidence by influencing style and high fashion.

Palo Alto, meet Claudio Arena. Claudio is our representative for Bevel Specs, a line of high end independent eyewear that specializes in petite faces and features bold, rich colors. It's been my pleasure to work with Claudio and Bevel over the last five years, first in San Francisco, and now here at Lux Eyewear. As a colleague, but also as a friend, I'd like to say, there aren't enough people like Claudio: genuine, passionate and dedicated to the kind of quality in product and service that our clients have come to expect.

Bill Barton and Patty Perreira: This dream team born out of the Oliver Peoples/Luxottica buyout several years back, are the proud founders of high fashion and luxury brand Barton Perreira. Former President of Oliver Peoples, Barton, and designer, Perreira, share a passion for independent, quality, handmade products. My personal eyewear idol, Ms. Perreira maintains a style that is fresh, youthful, sophisticated and always innovative. Handmade from the finest Japanese materials, including acetate and titanium, these styles are timeless and chic at the same time. Inspirational colors include Midnight Blue and Gypsy Rose, an ombre look of brown and a dusty red which I think is the most beautiful color on almost every woman. Between shapes, colors, sizes and materials, sun and optical, there is a frame (or two!) for everyone in Barton Perreira’s collections.
Lux Eyewear is proud to introduce Palo Alto to Barton Perreira. As Palo Alto’s premier destination for luxury eyewear, we strive to always offer the best in the industry, the most unique yet wearable styles in quality is that matched by few. We are proud to support independent eyewear companies such as Barton Perreira.
