Since 1977, Europa International has strived to offer eyewear that’s out of the ordinary and its latest collection, Scott Harris, surely embodies that objective. The continued growth and success of one of Europa’s top-selling collections is due in large part to Scott H. Shapiro who continually drives the brand forward. Having grown up in and around the business, Shapiro is a vital part of the design team for his namesake collection.  With the recently added Scott Harris Underground collection, retro comes out to play.
The Scott Harris line is offered in three collections: Scott Harris, Scott Harris Pulse, and Scott Harris Underground. All three offer up-to-the-minute fashion frame styles for women and men.

With modern and bold looks from trendy unisex styles to distinctly masculine or feminine designs, the urban feel of the Scott Harris collection offers something for anyone who wants their eyewear to reflect their individuality. And there are plenty of interesting choices with both metal and plastic offerings.

A modern look and wearable, on-trend colors define unisex rec-tangular Style No. SH-245 in the Scott Harris collection. A laser-cut, geometric pattern in the metal front lets a second color show through and a metal “chain” of three squares in bold contrasting colors are inlaid on top of the temples. Bold in every way, women’s Style No. SH-254 is a triple-laminate acetate frame that features an elongated geometric eyeshape. Available colors in-clude black with aquamarine, deep aubergine with lime, and charcoal with fuschia. There are numerous models for the guys too, including the trendy metal Style No. SH-230 with nylon rims; striated metal lines on the endpieces and temples make an added statement.
The Scott Harris Pulse collection is all about unconventional and sleek styling. These laser-cut metal frames are full of color and fun accents to let the wearer make a daring statement. The unisex Style No. SH-Pulse-02 brings trendy to the forefront with a herringbone pattern on the endpieces and temples. And its sleek design is bumped up a notch with fresh color combos. For a completely different look, women’s Style No. SH-Pulse-08 has a more retro round-shaped rim that helps capture excitement.
According to Europa, the Scott Harris Underground collection promises to “channel the inner hipster in everyone.” And being geek-chic doesn’t mean you have to be uncomfortable. These unisex frames have keyhole bridges and spring hinges to ensure a comfor-table fit. The chunkiest model is Style No. SH-UG-02. This frame comes in retro-looking black as well as tortoise and chocolate/blue horn. Not to be outdone, the smaller Style No. SH-UG-03 compliments those with thinner or more petite faces. Style No. SH-UG-05 features sides spiced up with thin stripes of coordinating color along the entire temple. All of the Underground frames feature the highest-quality Mazzucchelli acetate.
The Scott Harris collection is not about ordinary and the new Underground collection pushes the envelope with hip themes, providing clear evidence that trendy and quality can go hand in hand.
