The cat-eye with a twist
Meet Balboa, a slightly oversized and chunky cat eye by Entourage Of 7 with a zyl rym that is off shaped and slightly larger then its metal back, creating a negative space effect.
Entourage of 7 is luxury eyewear based in Los Angeles and influenced by the city in which it originates. In the City of Angels – an ever-changing multicultural melting pot, they find joy in pushing forward, constantly reminding themselves to always be courageously creative. EO7 creates beautiful spectacles for both rockers and rollers, lovers and sinners at Venice Beach – their birthplace.
What does Entourage of 7 mean
7 – the Good Luck number was also the amount of members at the founding meeting of the company. 7 industry insiders deciding to follow their intuition and dream starting their own eyewear brand. Founder Jakob Talbo is to this day still head of design at Entourage of 7. They base their design philosophy on the heritage of Los Angeles eyewear – but not resting there. Always keeping their eyes and mind open to new ideas and manufacture their eyeglasses in Japan and Denmark. A great mix of tradition and cutting edge technology ensures a constant flow of creative ideas pushing our designs to new limits. From classic Japanese hinges with double rivets hammered into zyl acetate frames to laser cut aluminum alloys and titanium, EO7 honors both the vintage traditions and embrace progress. Just like Los Angeles is constantly changing – so are they!
EO7 and Bellinger House
In 2013 Entourage of 7 became a part of Bellinger House – not only a strategic decision in positioning the brand but even more the result of a longtime friendship between Malene and Claus Bellinger and Jakob Talbo.
