Often times than not, the quest for originality in designer eyewear can seem to be daunting. Simple tweaks in standard shapes whether it’s oval, wayfarer, and aviator tends to all blend into one at the end of trying on numerous pairs. But what really differentiates one brand from the rest? Los Angeles-based designer Jerome Mage of Jacques Marie Mage eyewear sought out to disrupt the eyewear design game with his latest collection which, “breaks from the banality of retroactive fads and imitative fashion.”
Quality over quantity comes to mind when it comes to the philosophy behind the Jacques Marie Mage brand. What he does is special and with beyond good intent. The eyewear line results in a micro-produced high quality product, with limited quantity focusing on bringing subtle opulent details to the forefront. From the exquisite crafted Japanese acetate that’s built with a special concealed hinge, custom hardware rivets, gold hardware, and distinctive frame shapes – the luxury brand is worth the splurgy investment that you will be throwing down for it.
Jerome Mage is a maker of rare, collectible luxury eyewear that combines historical motifs with precious materials, innovative production methods, and employs ethical business practices. What you find through his designs is that instant iconic flare by simply putting them on – as well as they should as Jerome draws his inspiration from the likes of style icons Bob Dylan and Pier Pasolini to name just a few.
Jacques Marie Mage debuts a collection of eyewear masterpieces. The stuff you make into collectible objects, rather than just mere eye protection. His designs are nothing short of deep histories; of coveted products loaded with distinction and elegance. Jerome Mage draws inspiration from across oceans and ages, blending craft concepts with quality materials. The result is a collection of refined statement pieces that are powerful, playful, and timeless.
