Gamine – Mayan Magic

Sophia is wearing “Tulum” by Gamine, a frame design that came from Mayan culture and Quintana Roo region inspiration, with a very simple round shape and unusual solution of the nose bridge.  Its bridge does not hold the frame horizontally but making a triangle shape to the point of the eyebrow sits. Because Aztec had faith that crystals have a spiritual power, the pike point on top of the bridge has been decorated with a beautiful jewel.


Gamine has an artistic perspective in the eyewear. The variety of elements and materials combinations amazes from one collection to another. |


Elena Kibalchich about Gamine:

“Gamine Tulum is an aftertaste. It’s something that’s in me each time I’m coming back from the Caribbean Sea to New York.
Aztec motifs, pale pink sand, corals, and seashells. Unconventional lifestyle, slowness, and true happiness. It’s all there”.
