Eye-catching frames are a great way to add a visual pop to any outfit, and there is nothing we here at All Woman Fashion (AWF) love more than accessories that team flair with function. Timberwear Inc — oozing specs appeal — is in our line of sight.
Happenstance is what got Timberwear principal Matthew Clarke in the business of customised frames. Here's the story in two stitches and a tack! He was dragged to a beach party by his partner where, in the throes of ennui, he noted three things fashionistas all had in common — stunning resortwear, complementary sandals, and stylish specs.
Clark recounts there being a strong representation of the Rock-based fashion labels which specialise in sandals and swimwear; however, there wasn't a local tag among the countless number of frames. “That was the 'ah-ha' moment, “ Clarke divulged.
For the banker, the obvious solution was to fill the void. After experimenting with plastic and metal frames, the suggestion was made to create something more akin to Brand Jamaica; eg 'wooden frames from the Land of Wood and Water.' Sleek and durable designer frames, fashioned from recycled wood that appeal to a myriad of tastes are the result. Trendsetters are able to up the style ante with bold cat-eye frames in a cocktail of unicorn hues, such as lilac, turquoise, and aquamarine, or create strong silhouttes with the iconic Wayfarer.
AWF encourages you to snag a pair at Fashion 911, the Swiss Stores Ltd, or online at timberwearinc.com.
