Erkers1879 // Timeless design & expressive silhouettes

Kayla is wearing “Breckenridge Hills”, a beautiful cat eye frame by Erkers1879 with an oversized silhouette, which is the perfect example of the brand’s classic, subdued-modern style. First released in the Fall of 2022, the Breckenridge Hills eyeglass quickly became a favorite from the family-owned brand, likely due to its timeless design and expressive silhouette.


This feminine frame features a thin rim and temple, balancing the oversized look of the frame. Known for mixing classic and contemporary elements in their designs, the Erkers added a smooth curve along the brow for a touch of elegance while a squared lower rim brings a fresh, modern feel to the eyeglass. A custom metal wire core can be seen through the crystal temples, supporting the handcrafted acetate and allowing for an adjustable fit. As seen on Kayla, this eyeglass nicely suits a wider face while uplifting the eyes with its modern cat eye edge.

Straying from their typical color palette, the Breckenridge Hills eyeglass was designed with four custom-acetate color blends, two of which feature brighter tones that are perfect for the summer season. Kayla is seen wearing the Sandy Purple color blend, which is exclusive to the Erkers1879 brand and found only on this eyeglass model. In this design, a light purple brow fades into an almost crystal-clear lower rim, offering a bright style that’s complemented by the blooms of the sunny season. This eyeglass is available in three additional colors: Black Gradient, Teal Sand, and Golden Tortoise.


About Erkers1879s Roman Numeral V collection:

From the Roman Numeral V collection, the Breckenridge Hills eyeglass features a “V” emblem inlayed at the temple tips, signifying the collection and the 5th generation of Erkers to run the family-business. Like each frame from their collection, this beautiful eyeglass gets its name from the city of St. Louis, the place of Erkers1879’s inception and their home for the past 144 years.
