Jan liked the stylish and sporty look of these “James 7” frames from theo eyewear. These metal frames, done in collaboration with designer James Van Vossel, feature an “Electric Blue” colour that draws attention straight to the eyes. Take note of the architectural shape – at once curved and jagged, and incredibly forward-thinking in composition. The frames are also unique for their integrated nose pads – made by bending a thin metal plate backwards into the shape of a nosepiece.
The manager of Optiek Somers in Antwerp, Jan is the son of theo eyewear co-founder Wim Somers, who launched his first collection in 1989.
