Emily Ramshaw

Emily Ramshaw is the Assistant Fashion News Editor at Flare Magazine, and we asked her to try on these “Powell” frames, from Dan Levy’s new collaboration with Toronto boutique, Spectacle. The “D.L. Eyewear x Spectacle” collection features four of the brand’s signature frame styles, available in different lens combinations. Our favorites: the chunky “Whitehall” tortoiseshell frames with bright blue mirrored lenses, or a matte black pair of “McKenzie” frames with a unique “greenbird” gradient. Only 100 pairs were manufactured in total, making this a truly limited-edition collaboration.

Emily was skeptical at first about pulling off these Clubmaster-inspired “Powell” frames, but she quickly realized how stylish they could be. The “silver tortoise” colour is a muted yet refined take on tortoiseshell, while the grey gradient lenses complete the elegant look. Designed to be unisex, the “Powell” also has a retro feel, injecting a little bit of nostalgia mixed with a dash of sophistication and personality.

Want your own piece from the new collection? 48 pairs from the collaboration are available at Spectacle’s three locations in Toronto. The rest are available for purchase online at dleyewear.com.
