Filao Reading Glasses
by Julie Wolfson
On a recent visit to Tokyo's über-mall Omotesando Hills, we visited the gorgeous eyewear shop Lunette Du Jura and discovered these reading glasses by Caroline Abram of Filao. Inspired by her childhood in Senegal, Abram's designs incorporate wood, ceramic, cotton, glass, leather, resin, mother of pearl, onyx, turquoise, tiger eye and crystal in her work. The chains she has handmade in Senegal.
If we get to wear these when we "mature," then we will surely be the most fashion forward little old lady on the block. For now the Filao glasses are so chic we might order a sunglasses holder (pictured above right) or a pair of the reading glasses to wear as a necklace.
Contact the North American distributor French Melody for more info about wholesaling them.
