I don’t need glasses, but with today’s (August 6) release of the new fall collection from local eyewear brand and online boutique Rivet & Sway, I might have to inquire about fake lenses.
Six of the 10 frames in its line have been unveiled (expect the rest in October), and each style has quite the cheeky name: Plus One, Pillow Talk, Layer Cake, Snapshot, Ticker Tape and Checkpoint. R&S designed its collection to celebrate the various roles women play throughout the day. “We invite women to reinvent their look with a simple change of frames to suit the character they want to play or how they want to feel each day,” says CEO Sarah Bryar.
It’s clear that the company pays close attention to detail; we’re told the new frames feature wider and taller styles in super bright hues. And what’s more, if you haven’t dabbled in its gratis try-three-pairs-at-home deal, you must give it a go.
The frame I’m eyeing? The fun and flirty Pillow Talk in the bold rock candy color (pictured left)—sans prescription, of course. To shop, key in rivetandsway.com or visit its Pioneer Square showroom at 89 Yesler Way.
