We are:

– 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…)

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.
