Christian Roth for Optical Affairs Series 6556 sketched by Karen Baba @karmigo Christian Roth Eyewear
Instagram: Our friend Selima Salaun introduced the beautiful Hawaiian-born artist Karen Baba to the magic world of eyeglasses and that is how Karen – now living in NYC – became an eyewear enthusiast and collector. Inspired by visual aesthetics of Eastern and Western cultures, Karen was teaching Fine Arts for a couple years. She started sketching eyewear she personally wanted to wear and posted them on Instagram. Soon her work got regramed and followed all over the world and showcased at Selima Optique in Soho. Very recently, we noticed with delight – through IG – that Karen had posted a sketch inspired by the famous image “Oysters for Lunch” featuring our big silver mirrored ‘Christian Roth for Optical Affairs’ design Series 6556.

OUR FAVORITE WALLET

by Jac Henri
Handmade designer wallet by Jac Henri, recommended by Christian Roth Eyewear Christian Roth Eyewear
The ultra-slim design is based on a wallet Yannick “Jac” Henriette made for himself eight years ago after being unable to find a sleek wallet that didn’t bulge out of his pocket. After almost a decade of using the wallet and testing on friends and family, he finally brought the handmade product to market via a successfully funded Kickstarter launch in 2013. The wallet, which broke new ground with its pocket orientation and removal of a cash section, has received an enthusiastic response from both everyday “Jacs” and celebrities like Martha Stewart and basketball great, Ray Allen. We know Yannick, and his wife Hadley, personally and they are a fantastic couple with exquisite taste.

Mirror-Like: Anish Kapoor has given
a New Face to Versailles for summer 2015.
His sculpture “C Curve” – made out of
highly polished stainless steel and
reminiscent of an oversized shield lens –

THE COLOR OF MOROCCO

featuring Paul Dramard
Paul Dramard with Christian Roth mirrored sunglasses showing the color of Morocco in Marrakech. Christian Roth Eyewear
Majorelle blue. It was named after the French artist Jacques Majorelle, who in 1924 constructed the famous Majorelle Gardens in Marrakech, and painted everything from the walls, the fountains and the adjoining villa the same local shade of intense and vibrant blue. It’s a hue that somehow manages to combine a warmth and freshness. This photo is a wink to jet-set bohemians Talitha & John Paul Getty, style icons who came to be the blueprint for what we consider hippy luxe – to the inner fashion world if not to the general public. Talitha, a stylish, bohemian “molasses-blond” said at the time “Everyone looks beautiful in Marrakech.“ And the same goes for Paul spotted in Christian Roth mirrored sunglasses.
