Check out Erika, wearing these cool feminine asymmetrical shades by Sabine Be! We just love its round half-logo hollowed out on the face, combined with its round and square rivets on the front and on the temples. This handmade in France frame featuring crystal Mazzucchelli acetate is called “Be Girly” and is part of her “Cloud” capsule collection. The name Be Girly speaks for itself I guess, but the name Cloud needs some more explanation.
All the frames from this capsule collection, are fitted with blue lenses on which silver clouds appear. This is a unique E-Sun Magicoat by Essilor Sun Solution called Haute Couture, which allows designers to put the spotlight on their inspirational imagination by drawing directly on the surface of the lens, without causing any vision trouble.
Sabine is a big fan of surrealist painter René Magritte and adores skies and clouds, so when she found out she could actually print her own cloud drawings onto her lenses through this new Essilor Sun Solution technology, she was super excited.
In just 4 years, sabine be has rapidly become one of the most respected and innovative glasses designers in the optical industry. What started as a childhood dream quickly turned into a wonderful reality, a passion strong enough to move mountains, break down walls and accomplish projects which were once considered impossible. An intense motivation doubled by an amazing breakthrough covering all five continents in order to strongly distract the heart.
