Our Article One Collection gives back to Flint, Michigan

Article One is a really cool, independent eyewear company from the midwest that makes unique contributions back to community. They are already known for donating a portion of each frame purchase to the Helen Keller Foundation. 
As one of our favorite eyewear collections, we are proud to support their new campaign to help out the city in which it originates- Flint, Michigan. 
We stock all 6 models of the  FLINT COLLECTION and for each purchase, 100% of the proceeds go to FlintKids.Org

In the words of Article One’s website: 

“We care about Flint, MI – a city that is home to our headquarters and close to our hearts. In the wake of the water crisis, we knew we needed to lend a hand to the community that has always lent a hand to us, which is why we designed a collection of frames to benefit the people most affected by the crisis – Flint children.
100% of the profits from these limited edition frames will be donated directly to FlintKids.org, an organization dedicated to long-term solutions for the health & development of Flint’s youth.
Your purchase of a pair of sunglasses from The Flint Collection will contribute to our goal of raising $40,000 for our city. Help us help to move #FlintFwd”

Here we go AGAIN! One of our frame muses, Marita, in a few of her newly claimed looks from our favorite Dutch designer, ROGER EYE DESIGN. We simply can’t get enough of the bold geometric combinations & colors she confidently shows off… 
Style-wise, she surely brings her best out & about Seattle!

The newest edge from one of our favorite french vendors!

Behold- POP… our exciting new collections from one of our longtime french eyewear companies,  Roussilhe.  The chunky, block-cut acetate offers up a defined edge to the modern plastic frame, while the contrasting outline of bright color adds a sharp, vibrant finish. 

We are in awe of these looks and how well they compliment so many different faces!
