In 2017 two marketing employees at Optiplus (Dutch eyewear wholesaler and part of the Hilco Vision group) observed that a lot of kids who were wearing glasses were very careful during their play in order not to damage their glasses. While jumping on the trampoline, skating, and sporting, these kids were quite limited in their game. This was the moment the idea of Milo & Me was born: Giving kids the freedom to play worry-free by creating strong, flexible and comfortable eyewear. Kids should feel free to move, play around and simply have fun. And above all: feel good about wearing glasses!
The German product development team of Breitfeld & Schliekert (also part of the Hilco Vision group) took up the idea and together with a Scandinavian design team they started to design flexible, lightweight, strong and cool frames for kids and teens. The range offers a solution for every child’s taste – be it a dreamer, an explorer, a rock star, a cute princess, a sports champignon, a ballet dancer or a little lion.
