Shauns California // Kames & Lauder designs

SHAUNS has become synonymous with designs which achieve a balance between a clean, restrained silhouette and thoughtful, rich design touches.

 

The Kames & Lauder are two more great examples of us providing our man and woman with frames in which they feel tailored and sophisticated yet subtly distinct.

Shaun Paterson, Founder

As part of the brands continued exploration of balance and detail SHAUNS releases mixed material pair Kames & Lauder. The frames share a bridgeless design with a high bowed brow bar for a distinct and modern silhouette. The Kames is a contemporary panto eye shape and the Lauder a widely flattering soft rectangular eye shape.

Both frames are available in 4 metal finishes, with 4 corresponding acetate inserts. Pale Colored Crystals were selected by the design team for the acetate inserts to maintain a light visual weight around the eye while still introducing the richness of the acetate.

Thoughtful details include cubist inspired sculpted temples and temple tips, custom textured eye wire and “strap” soldering. The frames are handmade in Italy and are available immediately.

The Lauder

The Lauder has a familiar rectangular eye shape with modern updates like the bowed brow bar bridge, custom beveled temples, and thermoformed temple tips.
