Spectacle has received a brand new shipment of Orgreen eyewear! Orgreen is a leading eyewear company, known for their inventive approach to design and handcrafted titanium styles. Every Orgreen model is handmade to ensure even the smallest details are perfected on each piece.
|A photo timeline showing the work that goes into each Orgreen model|
The new collection includes striking shapes and a range of unique colourways. Each model has a story behind its name and inspiration as well.
|The Drax, named after James Bond's arch-enemy in Moonraker, embodies |
a self-assurance that is "utterly unapologetic"
|The Observer, a vintage style with big, round lenses, |
is a unisex model that is especially appealing for women
|Tilda is inspired by the Oscar-winning British actress, Tilda Swinton, known for her edgy, androgynous appeal|
|The Visionaire model is designed to appear as though the lenses are floating in air -|
it is a contemporary take on the "pince-nez", a classic lunette popular in the 19th century
These and more brand new Orgreen styles are available now at Spectacle!

Yesterday, Spectacle had the privilege to attend a preview of the S/S 2015 Danish Fashion & Design scene at the stylish Airship 37 venue. The showcase featured various clothing and jewelry designers from Denmark, as well as eyewear specialists Lindberg. The event was a great success - even the Danish princess, Crown Princess Mary, was in attendance for a meet-and-greet.
