Euroinsights -Optical Journal

Magical thoughts and playful images of summer “vacays” to sunny and exciting destinations should now, hopefully, be booked or finalizing. The weather is improving, and after many months of mandatory travel restrictions, planning a summer getaway is a most welcome and well-earned escape.

For our final installment of Euroinsights sunglass selections for summer 2021, diversity shimmers like the sun on the sea. The powerful impact of sunglasses commands its own style statement while emphasizing protective safety measures in the sun. Styles, colors, shapes, and materials manifest creativity, as well as imagination – with discerning priorities on quality, craftsmanship, and construction.

Glamour, chic, and mystery radiate from Birgitte Falvin’s sophisticated, luxurious Stellar frame.

A Silmo d’Or nominee with her first eyewear collection in 2015, Birgitte combines her knowledge and experience of fine jewelry design with her expertise in working with luxurious metals and gems.
