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.”

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.

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.

Known for his keen eye and flair, his limited-edition eyewear collection reflects the designer’s matured vision and refined aesthetic vocabulary, one that boldly reconfigures influences ranging from Art Deco to American Folk to La Belle Époque. Owning his pieces are not just like owning any regular pair of shades, but rather owning a piece of sartorial art that was perfectly made to be the frame of your face. If you’re the discerning sunglass collector as much as we are, we’d do as Kristen Stewart does – own a coveted pair or three, and never leave home without them.
