Tavat – Soupcan RoundMask

Chantal is wearing a special take on TAVAT Eyewear’s popular SoupCan frame. It’s more exclusive with undeniably more style. Their new model “Round Mask,” is a modified SoupCan featuring an acetate mask inserted into the body of a SoupCan. This Round Mask is instantly an iconic frame. And for this particular model, its even two frames in one!

While TAVAT’s Designer, Norm was visiting a friend in Arizona, who constructs and races planes, he noticed an old poster on a hangar wall, advertising a group of crop sprayers, back in the ‘30s, who got together on weekends to give airshows, calling themselves “The Flying Burritos”. Seeing their crude goggles, Norm imagined that they were cut out of soup cans and immediately came up with the idea, which after a great deal of study resulted, not only in a completely new way of making frames, but also a surprisingly original collection meeting the current trends of weight and rounded eyes.
