French women are known for their seemingly effortless elegance, while New York women are known for their powerful confidence and all-black ensembles. Taking inspiration from both, eyewear image expert and luxury eyewear retailer Valerie Vittu has designed her first eyewear line intended to give people, “theexperience of feeling beautiful and amazing.”
Founded in 2014 and born in SoHo, the creative heart of New York City. We approach eyewear as a means of fashion innovation, design as a constant flow of possibilities and our brand as an experiment in play. Created in New York City and handcrafted in France, Smoke x Mirrors is a reflection of the deep pool of cultural influences that inspire us as designers, releasing radically diverse collections that adhere to no set identity, only a commitment to thoughtful, functional, lasting aesthetics.
The ultimate up cycle: art for your face. Rescuing unplayable records, recrafting them with love and artisty that is SPEXWAX eyewear. Choose from one of our existing styles or consult with us to design your very own creation. We thrive on customizing frames to suit the individual and offer the unexpected. Each pair is handmade from an unusable vinyl record, no two are the same, just like you !
"We design eyewear to celebrate the diversity of faces and the uniqueness of individuals. The glasses we make are sparks of our imagination. You complete these thoughts and bring the dreams of l.a.Eyeworks into being."
-- Barbara McReynolds & Gai Gherardi
