#22 Spy eyeglasses 300
Spy was started in the early 90's by a group of people who loved design, surfing, skiing, snowboarding, and cars. Freedom was the goal – creative freedom to redefine how fashion, eyewear, and technology all worked together. In other words, Spy went into it for all the right reasons.
Spy frames are in the same ballpark as Tommy Hilfiger frames. Simple and clean, but precise enough to appeal to people who appreciate sharp and well-honed design. If it looks like the design process was simple, that's only because the design process was so in depth.
Spy framesThe Spy Vaughn is a top seller because it is such a great example of stylised function. It doesn't take itself too seriously. The challenge in design is to quit tweaking when the product is finished – and it is clear Spy has this talent in spades. To release a pair of glasses so close to ordinary, yet so far away at the same time, is a colossal display of savvy and insight.
If you think that's bland, the MARCO is proof otherwise. MARCO proves every article of eyewear produced by Spy is thought out, planned, and executed in the best possible way to deliver a fetching end result for you.
But that's Spy all over. One step ahead, and one cut above. These “design freaks”, as they call themselves, have thought their designs through, front to back, inside and out, to deliver their ultimate vision to your doorstep.
Spy is about going really fast, making a big impact, and doing it with precision and rigor. Spy is about exploring, and then playing with what you've just discovered. Spy is about being good at what you love to do, and showing it to the world. Oh, and being really happy. It's a good thing, then, that Spy is so good at making glasses, because otherwise the world would be missing out.
