The design aesthetic is classic, timeless design, but with a modern edgy flair. Very sexy and sleek. The main sunglass types we will pursue are a medium sized aviator, and a somewhat chunkier clubbing style glass with a single wrap-around lense. Please feel free to play with different lense colors and shapes! We want this to be fun and just generate a lot of imagination. The materials being used will generate a large amount of attention so the over all design doesnt have to be extravagant, though that is acceptable as well!
We will be using:
1. Damascus steel
2. Stabilized Box elder burl
3. Sterling Silver
4. Carbon Fiber
5. Stabilized Apple/Tiger Coral
6. Streaked Buffalo Horn
-Lapis Lazuli Gemstone
-Mother of Pearl
-White turqouise Gemstone
-Dark/Light Turquoise Gemstone
-Black Onyx Gemstone
-Jasper Gemstone Composites
All these components are either made of organic compounds, or have a processed character that is unique and not duplicatable to a perfect degree. We are very interested in the many different interesting combinations of colors, textures, in-lays, and designs that are possible. I would love to see the club-style design with lense frames covered in red, white, black or green suede. We believe that every aspect of our product is a work of art and attention to detail is huge. We welcome interesting and embellished (yet tasteful) innovations to the connecting pieces from stem to lense frame. We wil be etching a serial number into the temples (stems) of each pair. Scrimshaw may be used in the application of our name/logo. Though our company name officially is Crimson Optics, the name appearing on our glasses will be just Crimson.
