The late-19th-century influence of Japanese culture on French fine arts makes this new collection from Avalon Eyewear a true standout. With four styles in the initial release, the Avalon Couture collection is made in France and features unique acetates with an overlay of copper powder. This approach creates different colors and textures as it oxidizes and is cured, resulting in a look reminiscent of the ancient Japanese lacquer technique known as Maki-e. Style No. AV710 is shown here in cognac. For more information, contact Avalon Eyewear, Inc. at 888-767-0383 or avaloneyewear.com.
