Rex and Sue – Frames for tough kids

How a TRex became cool kids eyewear

AVA Brillen​ owner Jeroen van Hest had been looking for a unique collection for children up to 10 years old for a very long time. One evening he watched a documentary about the discovery of the best preserved skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus Rex by archaeologist Susan Hendrickson. This T-Rex was named after her finder and was named ‘Sue’. On that night the name Rex & Sue eyewear was created!

These contemporary children’s glasses have cool color combinations and are ‘just a little different’. Just perfect for tough children that like to both act cool and look cool.

All frames for boys are called REX and all girl frames are called SUE, but at the TEF Kids shoot, we wear what we like! Featuring Zoe wearing REX03 colourway S04, Fyn wearing REX06 in colourway S02 and Little Noa wearing the same REX06 but in colourway S01.
