We are:
visionary
& iconic

– since 1984 –

CHRISTIAN ROTH AND ERIC DOMÈGE have created a visionary EYEWEAR BRAND that defines trends and sets fashion standards

Live. Love. Laugh. Thrive. Protect. Survive. Mantras for the 21st Century. Words that inspire the enduring nature of Christian Roth. More chic than cool, more fun than fad, more sexy than sassy, more design than “designer”. If eyes are the windows into our soul, then our choice of eyewear must surely reveal the truth that lies within. (Read more about us…)

Christian Roth Sunglasses and Gloria-Nicola of 20/20 Magazine celebrating Hall of Fame Award for 40 years of publishing the latest eyewear fashion.

The Accessories Council recently honored 20/20 Magazine with its annual Hall of Fame Award during a ceremony at Tao in Las Vegas. 40 years of publishing the latest eyewear fashions, style, trends, news and much more. Accepting the award were our friends James Spina, VP, editor-in-chief and Marc Ferrara, publisher/CEO. Congratulations! A special treat to be photographed with Gloria Nicola, 20/20’s iconic feature & fashion editor since 1987. For 27+ years, Gloria was infallibly tuned in on finding the newest trends; always traveling with her shoulder bag – like a skilled hunter – visiting the international eyewear tradeshows around the world. Dear Gloria, thank you for your kind words in your farewell letter, but as you write, you are only clicks away! We wish you all the best.

ISABEL TOLEDO 2015

Cuban born Isabel Toledo is one of our favorite designers. An avid seamstress from a young age, Toledo’s work reflects not only a distinct design sense but a keen understanding of garment construction and appreciation for the geometric intricacies of pattern shapes. We all remember the lemongrass yellow wool lace shift dress with matching overcoat which the First Lady selected to wear at the first inauguration of Barack Obama in 2008, it was a creation by Isabel Toledo. We were privileged to attend her first fashion show in 1985 in New York and to meet her husband Ruben Toledo, the Cuban-Amercian artist. A few years later, Isabel stopped presenting biannual collections, instead choosing to create on her own schedule. Therefore, we were very flattered when Bernart Buscato asked us recently if we like to collaborate on the sunglasses – along with the famed shoe designer Edmundo Castillo – for Isabel’s spring/summer 2015 fashion show Camuflash de Moda “Six O’Clock Tea – 20th Edition at La Rural”, a famous event created by Carminne Dodero in Buenos Aires. Congratulations! Notice Isabel herself hiding elegantly in the right hand photograph behind one of her beautiful #FashionNuns.

Forever in fashion. This November marks 30 years since the restaurant Indochine, a favorite chiceteria of the art and fashion crowd, opened in New York – and more than 20 years since our friend Jean-Marc Houmard became co-owner. An amazing big beautiful bash last Friday – a night of red decadence with incredible performances by Company XIV – and a special, super-collectible red Indochine MAC lipstick mark the occasion. Happy Birthday Indochine and thank you for making us feel at home since 1984! #30spectacularYears

C for Carlos by Christian Roth

"C for Carlos" is the newest design from Christian Roth Eyewear 2015 – inspired by Carlos Venegas, a talented and stylish optician and owner of Artsee Miami.Christian Roth
The Christian Roth 2015 new unisex releases designed by Roth & Domege – handcrafted in the Italian Dolomites out of environmental friendly acetate – are inspired by 20th century art which turns into exquisitely elaborate collages and cut-outs, their fascination for clashing strong colors, a flurry of contrast, and unpredictable pairings, practical needs for an easy-to-wear-optical frame without looking at a sea of optical sameness … and by Carlos Venegas, the young, talented, independent and stylish optician born in Columbia. He is the owner of Artsee Miami at 1111 Lincoln. His overwhelming enthusiasm about our latest releases made us name our newest design “C for Carlos”. All together primary cool!

“The 50 Most Iconic Sunglasses
Of All Time” What a wonderful
compliment to be included
with two of our designs
in New York Magazine.
Thank you!

2/50 Kurt Cobain’s Christian Roths Immortalized on the face of the Nirvana front man and Grunge God, these pale oval shades helped cement Cobain’s grubby, androgynous cool.
5/50 The Fashion Pope of Chanel is never seen without the following: a low silver pony, a billowing ascot, and a pair of black shades. They could be Wayfarers, aviators, black-as-night opaque, or north-south gradient, but they all guarantee complete pupil obscurity for King Karl. We designed these shades with Marchon’s Giancarla Agnoli.
