Interior designer Jon Call is a big eyewear fan, who has more than a dozen pairs of glasses on regular rotation. His favourite eyewear brands include Selima Optique and YSL, though these Moscot frames – Jon calls them his “standby glasses” – hold special meaning as well. Jon’s first apartment in New York was across from the Moscot store, and he picked up these “Nebb” frames because he wanted a pair of vintage-inspired glasses with a slightly more modern fit.
These acetate frames have a decidedly old school Manhattan feel, and feature a chunky, rectangular shape and saddle nose-bridge. Double rivets and a deep Tortoise colour add visual interest. Paired with his polka-dot blazer and tie, Jon pulls off a retro-meets-modern look convincingly, proving that his knack for design extends to his dapper duds as well.
