TC Charton // Unapologetic Femininity

Siu is wearing Waimea, one of TC CHARTON’ newest sunglasses styles that is packed with unapologetic femininity. Named after the iconic region in Northern Big Island famed for gorgeous bays, imposing volcanos and breathtaking canyons, its large square shape exudes confidence while delivering uncompromised fit.

Each one of the color combinations is meant to evoke the memories of the Hawaiian region. The acetates are expertly laminated on the top corners of the frame and temples to resemble the juxtaposition and breathtaking landscape: Crystal clear blue water layers with sandy beige; Red canyons that contrasts with the blue sky; steel volcanic gray plays against translucent turquoise blue.

Why Asian Fit Eyewear?

Most of the eyewear products available are tailored for Caucasian features. As Asian facial characteristics are different than those of Caucasians, it’s no wonder Asians have scarce choices of eyewear products that fit them properly.

Alexandra Peng Charton

TC Charton was designed to accommodate higher cheekbones, lower nose bridges and other ethnic features that make conventional eyewear impossible or uncomfortable to wear. With over a hundred different frames to choose from, the wearer can have a great fit without having to compromise on style and luxury.

Founder Alexandra is constantly studying faces wherever she goes, always on the lookout for her latest muse. Each style is crafted to fit the features of people that she has met in her travels, and the finished product even shares the name of the person that inspired them. TC Charton  was created foremost to fit Asian features, however the multitudinous styles available in the collection appeal to people of many other ethnic backgrounds, and they are finding that TC CHARTON eyewear fits them fabulously.
