For more than two decades, The Stoffel family has run an independently-owned and operated eyewear boutique, tucked into a fashionable little corner in the heart of Zurich. The store carries forward-thinking brands like Marni and Chrome Hearts, specializing in frames with character and fresh, modern details. In 2012, The Stoffels introduced their own line of glasses exclusively to the store, appropriately naming the brand, “Stoffels Own.”
These frames, which we spotted on Claudia in Miami, are made from horn and wood, and hand-crafted in Switzerland. Though the shape is retro-inspired – with its sweeping curves and traditional keyhole bridge – the matte tortoiseshell and one-of-a-kind inlays inject a chic, contemporary finish. Thoughtfully befitting the name, the Stoffels are actively involved in the entire frame-making process, selecting everything from the colours to the components that make up each pair of glasses.
