This bizarre frame that Chantal is wearing is called Varana and its handmade in France by our friends at Parasite Eyewear. It was inspired by Lucha Libre masks (Mexican wrestling). This is why its name sounds like a Latina Super Heroin. But this model is much more smooth and feminine than expected through its origin. Its Y shaped Stereo arms grow from the bottom of the lens to the sides of the face in a butterfly wing design. Thus Varana is a very sensual model, a great classic of the Parasite Vision Wear for women.

The Parasite Eyewear Varana 3 offers a soft cat-eye shape constructed of ultra-light weight stainless steel and a nylon iridescent frame front. It is part of Parasite’s “LED Range”, which frames combine two materials that allow various and modern games of lights and colors. Mate or glossy metal, different levels of iridescent LED transparency… The result is very thin and lightweight frames, as sheets of light on the face.

By modifying the density of the vacuum metal treatment we can obtain a variety of iridescent colors throughout the entire spectrum”.[/perfectpullquote]
