Draped in a custom developed leather that has been painstakingly patterned to capture the texture of fiberglass, the Reebok x Eames Classic Leather Fiberglass Pack’s monotone uppers sit elegantly atop the shoe’s crisp natural rubber two-piece midsole. Each colorway – Parchment, Sea Foam Green, and Pink – celebrates Eames’ original Molded Fiberglass Chair color options offered from the 1950’s to today.

More original chair colors appear on the insoles, which feature a 16mm print from the Eames archives taken on the set of the whimsical 1960 Eames film Kaleidoscope Jazz Chair. The traditional Classic Leather window box branding is replaced with a debossed ‘Eames’ signature that mirrors the authentication branding that can be found on the underside of Molded Fiberglass Chairs. Each shoe comes with a collectible keychain of an Eames DAX (dining-height armchair with X-shaped base) in the same color as the upper.

Choosing contacts to match your lifestyle

Contact lenses have become quite popular when it comes to correcting vision, so most people prefer them compared to glasses. Contacts have many benefits like wearing non-prescription sunglasses and providing better peripheral vision. Remember that contacts are medical devices designed to sit on your eye, so you need to know how to use and care for them. 

And, it’s a good idea to choose contact lenses that perfectly match your lifestyle. Contacts are not one-size-fits-all because you can find various types for different preferences and conditions. To find the contacts that are great for you, you need to figure out your lifestyle and determine the characteristics that define your daily life. This article discusses how to choose contacts that match your lifestyle.

Type of lens

If you lead a busy and active life, then you need to get disposable daily contact lenses at https://www.contactlenses.co.uk. Disposable daily contacts are often comfortable and thin and you can use them when you want to. These contacts are suitable for daily wear. And, if you are a swimmer or participate in physical and sports activities, the daily disposable contact lenses can be the best option because you can easily discard them after use. 

Take note that disposable daily contacts are a great option for a busy person who doesn’t want to clean or maintain the lens. Besides, they are also suitable for those who are not used to wearing contacts or only wear them irregularly. But if you want to wear contact lenses full-time, you should consider monthly contacts because they are convenient and cost-effective. 

Aside from daily disposable contact lenses, there are also high-moisture contact lenses. High-moisture contact lenses are suitable for those who work long hours at their PCs. When you stare at your screen for too long, you can sometimes notice that your eyes are tired of dry. Regardless of this, most people still continue to work at their computers to complete the work. 

Like many people, you may have to work long hours on your computer or simply watch movies and surf the web. But staring at the screen tends to put a lot of stress on your eyes, so you must get comfortable contact lenses that have high moisture content. You can find lenses that are made up of soft materials like silicone hydrogel contacts which are also suitable because they can allow better oxygen permeability.  This offers hydration and great comfort for extended wear. 

You need UV-blocking contact lenses if you are usually outdoors. This applies whether your job requires being outdoors or you simply like to soak up in the sun. UV-blocking contact lenses can reduce your exposure to ultraviolet rays. When you protect your eyes from damage due to UV light, you can also lower the risks of developing macular degeneration and cataracts in the future. 

Lastly, colored contact lenses can be ideal if you love to express yourself. Therefore, if you like wearing vibrant colored clothes, utilizing makeup or even dyeing your hair, then colored contact lenses can be suitable for you. Colored lenses can be a subtle yet appealing way to express your personality or change up your appearance. You can find prescription for natural colored contacts for both daily and monthly use. There are also prescriptions for contacts that can correct vision issues like astigmatism.

Wearing contact lenses

Most people use soft contacts, and there are many soft lenses you can find on the market. The soft contact lenses are often categorized by wear schedule, usually dailies, biweeklies, and monthlies. In most cases, daily contact lenses are designed to be replaced either daily. Biweekly contact can be replaced every two weeks while the monthly contact lenses can be replaced every thirty days. But your optometrist can give you a modified wear schedule, so you need to follow this schedule.

Your optometrist can also give you the care instructions. You need to keep your contact properly cleaned so that you can reduce the risk of your eyes becoming infected or irritated. Also, you need to ensure that you read the information that comes with your contacts. 

You should also keep your contact lenses away from water because contacts and water don’t mix. The truth is that exposing your contact lenses to water can contaminate the contacts with Acanthamoeba organisms that cause corneal ulcers. 

Also, you need to clean your contact lenses using the right contact lens solution. You should avoid cleaning your contact lenses with water or saliva. You should also utilize the contact lens solution that your optometrist recommended. But if the contact lens solution causes your eyes to irritate, then you should consult your optometrist. 

Contacts are not designed to be slept in as this can increase the chances of corneal ulcers or any other type of eye health problems. If you want to use extended-wear contact lenses, remember that putting them on for an extended period including overnight can increase the chances of eye infections.  

You should also wash your hand properly before you handle your contact lenses. This means that you should use water and soap, and dry your hands thoroughly. This helps to prevent contaminating your contact lenses with bacteria and dirt from your hands.

It’s worth noting that contacts are personalized and they sit directly on your eyes. Your optometrist often makes sure that they offer you contacts that function specifically for you. Also, for hygiene and health purposes, you must not share your contact lenses with someone else, especially if you have already used them or intend to wear them again.    

Above all, you should still wear eye protection or sunglasses when you use contact lenses. You can find UV-blocking contact lenses, but these contacts are designed only to protect your cornea. Therefore, this leaves the rest of the eye unprotected. Because of this, it’s crucial to wear sunglasses that have full UV light protection. Aside from this, you should wear the right eye protection when participating in sports or carrying out any activity that can leave your eyes unprotected.

GUCCI ATTACHE

Gucci Attache, the house’s latest bag style. The Attache Bag is characterized by an adaptable “G” clasp at the bottom of the strap which transforms the silhouette into a stunning half moon shape. This style draws upon a playful 1970s aesthetic and reaffirms the house’s ongoing efforts in gender inclusivity, offering eight distinct unisex styles.

A piece of contemporary design created from the awareness of a modern attitude and of the intentional revival of a historical object from the archive: Gucci Attache is a bag that reinterprets tradition and the system of House codes while transporting a silhouette, which draws from an intuition and an attitude of the 1970s, into the present through a narrative and gesturality outside the confines of gender, feminine or masculine.

Attache, like the French word for “hook,” like the geometry with which, through the power of symbols, can be defined as onomatopoeic because it closes onto itself like a hook. Or like the metallic hook that attaches the two corners. Attache, therefore, is the bag that progresses from a half-moon design encompassed by the Web, distinguished by a metal G that opens and closes its silhouette.

Versatile as a symbol, in shape, and in volume, the Gucci Attache is presented as the essence of a very current attitude and gesturality. Both in its medium and small sizes and in the diverse ways it can be worn, either on the shoulder or across the body, the line presents that appeal that only objects with dual functions can have.

“I was fascinated by the bag after having laid upon it a casual and fleeting glance while I was in the archive… Immediately, a desire took shape to reinterpret it and include it in the Love Parade collection for the fashion show in Los Angeles because its silhouette, typical of the Seventies, projects a very modern attitude that convinced me to draw out an eclectic symbol that could express the idea of a dual function. It is its G-shaped clasp detail, with its mechanical origin, that makes it the joining link between a bourgeois spirit, typical of an object of this kind, and the functionality of the world of utility,” says Alessandro Michele, Creative Director of Gucci.

With its interchangeable straps, in leather or the Web, that allow it to become both a shoulder bag and a handbag, the Gucci Attache is an item of design that is both transportable and ergonomic, living in contact with the body, a perfect silhouette to add to a hypothetical collection of objects of desire. In other words, of those wonderful, useful, inseparable objects that in the culture of contemporary living, have become bags.

The Gucci Attache is featured in a campaign that Art Director and photographer Max Siedentopf shot against a metropolitan backdrop, underlining the same symbols that form the meaning of this bag: references and perspectives that together, know how to create that glam-utility that is the expression of a culture of appearance and practicality. Two elements that create a desire for beauty.

Tyler in T HENRI via T HENRI for use by 360 Magazine

TYLER HENRI GELB

CREATING EXCLUSIVITY

Tyler Gelb, who graduated from the University of California, San Diego with a degree in Economics, worked as a financial analyst for the multinational company Sony between 2010 and 2011. In 2019, to assemble the most exclusive luxury eyewear collection available in the world, the Monaco Series, Tyler became the founder and designer of his international brand, T HENRI, which specializes in limited-batch collectible eyewear productions handmade in Sabae, Japan. 

By keeping the key brand message “Handmade and done the old-fashioned way” in mind, T HENRI commits to creating heritage pieces through sustainable materials. The company currently presents in 15 countries and has gained recognition with the American magazine Forbes. Meanwhile, the excellent marketing team has made the brand successful in different parts of the United States and the world, such as the Netherlands or Liverpool (UK).

Listen to Tyler Gelb’s full conversation with Vaughn on the 360 MAG Podcast HERE.

In 2020, during the pandemic caused by the coronavirus disease, Tyler decided to further accelerate the brand growth by designing something more exclusive than his competitors, especially to take advantage of the Caviar model, which is priced at almost 2K today. This unique collection includes three models: CorsaHydra, and Evo. One of the most notable designs of the collection is the adjustable nose pads which are made in premium quality minerals and could make users feel comfortable by adapting to the size of different noses. The sales that Tyler achieves with this product are high and very successful. 

Tyler adds that he wants to continue to maintain “a unique look that’s hard to come by about our product.” The designer is now creating a kind of high-end line. He and his team will start launching and photographing their campaigns with their grand premiere in September of 14 new models. These beta-titanium made frames are featured with aerodynamic characteristics from those high-performance cars. They are plated in various shades with 18-karat white gold, yellow gold, and rose gold. At the same time, to make the designs ergonomic, Tyler adds that the collections of T HENRI are returning to the colors radar blue and GO yellow as these tones give an exquisite and attractive result. The concept that he wants to carry forward with future productions would be limited to 99th percentile color combinations which would keep the products distinct. 

“Cars and watches are one of the biggest inspirations for me,” Tyler says. As a big fan of cars, Tyler is always galvanized by car brands such as Rolls-Royce for small accessories and Lamborghini for an attractive design. After being inspired by the world’s most talented independent brands, Tyler has created a new limitless eyewear collection, Continental, set in a boxy British Grand Tourer adapted on a high-speed, long-distance circuit. Each setting is electroplated with 1 micron of 18 karat gold, which produces a refined, exclusive, and polished shine.

As an eco and user-friendly brand, T HENRI takes the overall environmental impact and usability under consideration during the manufacturing process. The frames will always be kept as “sort of an organic look rich with color,” with being made in hypoallergenic cotton for human skin. 

Tyler mentions that the 2023 collection is already finished and will start with the 2024 one soon. By utilizing titanium as the new material for future collections, He maintains the idea that he is working on is way ahead to ensure all the designs are done right, as well as control material cost. 

LUXURY EXCLUSIVITY

Tyler’s concept as an entrepreneur is to “further differentiate our product”. Although art and design have a lot in common for him, both concepts have aesthetic purposes and contain the power to distinguish him from other brands. To preserve the exclusivity of the brand, Tyler made each limited production has only 50 pieces per style, and the color combination is laser-bonded and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity with the designated production number. Tyler emphasizes that those exclusive pieces are gone and will never be produced again once a color combination is sold out.

As the launch of the new eyewear campaign approaches in September, T HENRI aims to start including a list of celebrities in their eyewear content, as the brand label. 

The company president’s Philosophy is to “believe in yourself” and be risky because “the risk you are taking is on yourself, you have much more control, so I have been able to be riskier.” Tyler states that “I assume and am able to control it and mitigate it instead of putting it in someone else’s hands. It’s a beautiful thing once it reaches a tipping point, but you just have to endure it until you get there.”

The collection that T HENRI represents is the pinnacle of refined luxury and innovative construction practices.

Picking the Perfect Frames

Picking the picture-perfect pair of eyewear frames can be a difficult job. There are so many aspects to consider including one’s face shape, overall aesthetic, everyday activities; the list just goes on and on. Luckily, 360 Magazine has compiled a list of the top factors to consider when in search of your next pair of frames.

Purpose of Eyewear

The first question to ask yourself about your desired frames is why are you getting them in the first place?

  • Vision correction

First and foremost, if you’re looking for a pair of eyeglasses frames, there’s a pretty high chance that you may need glasses to enhance some component of your sight. Whether that be correcting blurred or double vision, or trying to find relief for eyestrain, headaches and squinting, glasses can help you out.

Vision changes over time, and its important to take care of the health of your eyes. The four most frequent refractive errors attributed to vision consist of nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia.

Nearsightedness causes objects that are far away to look blurry.

Farsightedness causes objects that are close to look blurry.

Astigmatism causes both far away and close-up options to look blurry – it is based upon the “football” shaping of ones eye in combination with genetic factors and how light passes through.

Presbyopia causes middle-aged/older adults to suffer difficulty while seeing objects close-up.

  • Protection

Glasses can safeguard your eyes from outside influences. From blue light rays that stem from screens, to blocking out ultraviolet rays shining down from the Sun or simply preventing random dirt from getting into your eyes, glasses are a suitable option if you experience a surplus of one of these circumstances.

If you find yourself working virtually, like most of us modernly, then its very important to invest in a pair of glasses that can protect your eyes from blue light rays. Blue light is awful close to the UV light on the visible spectrum and can cause trouble both indoors and outside. Possible affects of blue light exposure can cause blurry vision, eyestrain, dry eye, cataracts and sleep issues.

UV light exposure can simply be limited by using protective glasses. However, if not sheltered properly, UV light can actually “sunburn” the eyes and stimulate benign yellowish growth on the eye. Prolonged radiation can lead to eye conditions and diseases such as cataracts and macular degeneration, which have been the most prominent cause linked to blindness in adults over 60 years old.

  • Fashion

On a less serious note, frames can be added to an outfit to add an extra layer of spice and chicness. With an array of varying colors, styles and shapes, glasses can be styled in numerous ways, elevating one’s sense of fashion and offering for an enrichment of ones face.

Shape of Face

Face shape is a constant concern when considering which pair of frames to purchase. Choosing the best pair of frames can assure that your prescription works more efficiently. Let’s dive into the varying face shapes, and which fits each.

  • Round face

Because your face has pretty much the same width and length, a square or rectangular shaped frame, or something with a little bit of edge and sharpness, can add more definition to your face. Adding in these elements enhancing and defines the definition of your face shape.

  • Oval face

If you possess an oval face shape, you can pick from about any style of frames you want. Go for a trendy cat eye look, or something more vintage and squared; the choice is yours.

  • Square face

If your face is square-shaped, virtually all the measurements of your face are similar, ranging from the forehead, cheekbones and jaw. Because of this, it’s important to choose a frame that holds a round or oval shape. The roundness will contrast the squareness that your face already holds.

Aesthetic Style

Everyone has their own personalized sense of style, and this can be expressed through eyeglasses frames as well. There is a surplus of styles for frames, some being unisex, and others geared towards a specific demographic.

Some important things to think over when choosing a frame style:

  • Skin complexion
  • Personal features
  • Eye color
  • Hair color
  • Size of frame

Lifestyle

To choose the best suited pair of frames for oneself, we must review over our lifestyles. What does your average day to day look like? Are you typically working behind a desk, or adventuring out and about? What are some of the leading features that your frames will need to adapt to?

It’s important to review the activities of your lifestyle to ensure that you purchase a suitable, well-fitted pair of frames to keep up with your day to day. Ensuring the fit of your frames is one of the most significant aspects of eyeglass frames.

Some elements that will affect this include the material/weight of the frames, size of lenses, exercise/daily activity and blue light/UV exposure.
