Extremely Light Eyewear

What is extremely lightweight eyewear? It could fall into several categories: beta titanium, pure titanium, stainless steel, 3 piece rimless, and lightweight plastic or nylon, to name just a few. What they also have in common is their simplicity of design and the fact that they are extremely comfortable to wear and hypoallergenic, while offering endless scope for color combinations and individual solutions.

Tifosi Optics

The Tifosi Optics Envy™ is a sunglass you'll quickly forget you have on at all. Because the open-framed Envy is made of ultra-tough and durable Grilamid TR-90 and shatterproof polycarbonate lenses, it is light at just 21 grams. This sunglass also has hydrophilic rubber adjustable temples and nose piece and ventilated lenses for increased airflow and anti-fog.


The Spirit collection has now been expanded to include new temple designs in titanium plate and acetate combined with beautiful new lens shapes. The new temples illustrate LINDBERG's perfect mastery of the latest and most advanced technologies in which thin elegant titanium and acetate parts are fused together to form unique eyewear temples.


Lightec combines brushed stainless steel fronts with airy temples in a sanded double-coated acetate finish, giving the product a fluid and modern appearance. For women: the curvy and gentler shapes of the frame retrace a look with moderate lines and a light contemporary feel. The result is perfect harmony of lines and materials, providing men and women with a light, robust and comfortable product with character.


ESSENTIAL 1213-1219: Primarily created to complement small to medium sizes, ProDesign now introduces its new junior/petite adult range. Fashion meets timeless design in perfect balance, stressing that style has no age.

Jee Vice

Sweety: The vintage shape and lively hues add flavor to elegance. The frame has metal accents but is very light and thin to allow for a large field of vision. The shades are available in colors White, Black, Purple Fade, and Gold. The dark lenses can also be swapped out with prescription lenses at any point. Sweety's are made with TR90 frame material, which makes the glasses lighter and more comfortable.

BBH Eyewear

The new Titan Minimal Art Special Edition line boasts unique, retro-futuristic lens shapes to frame their wearer's face. With two lens styles designed especially for women and two others for men, the collection allows each individual to express their unique personality. With a deliberately generous size, the lenses were made with a special coating to create a soft gold or silver sheen, emphasizing the exclusive appeal.

Cinzia Designs

With the success of the current Pocket Eye collection, comes a second generation filled with new shapes and colors along with the addition of a brand new sun reader style.
