This frame is a result of the cooperation between Eyewear Kit and designer Michiel Cornelissen. Customize your glasses by ordering the frame in your favorite color here, and complete with one of Eyewear Kit's many high quality lens options: from readers to sunglasses, fun colours to prescription.

Designed as if drawn with a thick marker, the 'Wire' design brings eyewear back to its essence. All superfluous details are dispensed of - resulting in lightweight glasses that are striking it their simplicity, and very suitable for everyday use.

The polyamide used to manufacture these glasses is strong yet flexible, and can be washed (even dishwashed!) after removing the lenses. This material tends to smoothen and fade slightly with wear, not unlike, for instance, jeans textile. To achieve maximum simplicity in the form, this model has no hinges on the legs. The legs are flexible, but even so, take into account that 'Wire' will not fit in most eyewear cases. The size and shape of these glasses have been optimized to fit to most people's heads, but there are exceptions. If you have a very wide nose, or a very small head, the fit might be less good. For most men, 'wire' frames will appear as regular to smallish glasses; with most women, or men with smaller heads, they will also fit great, but more like more like 'pilot' style frames.
