Eyewear That’s U.
The angle through which U see your life defines your perspective.
So what’s your Point of U?
Point of U. | Boston (Newbury street).
From small, New England outfitters, to designers in Japan, Italy, Paris, and Germany, every piece of eyewear we source is hand-selected. Diverse. Eclectic. Sophisticated. Affordable.
Our brand ethos is to bring to market eyewear that is “artful yet wearable”. Using the construction of laminating a “frame within a frame” is just one means to this end.
The Grey Label is yet a very different expression of this mantra. As an optometrist, anatomy and biology classes were a prerequisite in my studies. I’ve always been intrigued by skeletal structures. In my earlier KATA Eyewear collection, I used exo-skeletons (shells, beetles) that were cast using the same techniques as jewelry makers. For this new collection, I used endo-skeletal structures that are made in the same old-school way.
Each frame is hand-cast and handcrafted in order to realize the subtly nuanced details. If you look closely, you can see the design of the joints and bones in the end pieces and temples. It’s about the touch, feel, and workmanship of the frames that’s important to me.
