Manish Arora, one of India’s (and the world’s) top fashion designers, blurs the lines between art and fashion. His work has appeared on international runways and his clothing lines are available at fashion boutiques across the globe. He has also collaborated on a wide range of non-apparel products. Now Inspecs USA offers the eye-catching Manish Arora Eyewear collection.

The Spring/Summer 2011 line features nine dynamic and dazzling ophthalmics in Arora’s signature “quirky mix-up of pop culture and traditional references,” “vibrant psychedelic prints,” and “filigree and love heart embellishments,” according to the company. A nine-piece sunglass collection is also offered.
Arora’s unmistakable mix of Eastern brilliance and Western style is apparent in Style No. XO2, a truly striking handmade acetate in gray tortoise and shiny black. The chassis appears to melt into the temple and then seamlessly blends in a black metal logo insert to create a hinge and temple core.
Style No. X03 is a combination modified aviator featuring a stainless steel chassis with acetate temples. In matte purple with a vibrant purple chassis, this decidedly feminine frame also boasts a textured pink temple with a hand-finished logo insert.
Style No. X07 is a modern, progressive-friendly frame in stainless steel with a two-tone chassis. It has a matte black front with a light green color on the back. Matching green temples with spring hinges and an animal print finish off this striking frame.
Semi-rimless Style No. X08 is a real standout. The stainless steel chassis has an artful flow to the wide temples which are works of art. Revealed beneath the laser cut-away is a color-contrasting epoxy infill that adds depth and character.
Full-length store front window posters, a six-piece display stand, single-piece displays, designer cases inspired by the Manish Arora signature logo, and cleaning cloths in Arora’s vivid colors and designs are true eye-catchers.
Show the world that art can be fashionable and that fashion eyewear is art with the Manish Arora eyewear collection.
