Mad for Beiner
By Marquita Harris, August 26th, 2010
Be it on the runways or on TV sets, Mad Men’s influence is everywhere. And thanks to eyeglass artisans Edward Beiner, that influence can now sit firmly on the bridge of your nose. Their most recent collection is a throwback to the early 1960s (a conservative era known now for Barry Goldwater’s defeat and—of course—chic tailoring). The collection itself is made with zyl, a versatile cotton-oil based acetate, instead of the more commonly used molded plastic. In short: they’re built to last. Handcrafted in the the Oyonnax region of France, the vintage-inspired frames are the perfect antidote for those craving a little glam.
