Quotes Eye Respect CEO & Creative Director, Jonathan van Blerk: “I don’t believe there is a trick to find the right sunglasses. It is too restrictive to say that certain shapes suit particular faces. We challenge ourselves to ensure every style works perfectly. Properly fitted sunglasses will look great on any face. Sunglasses change your expression, so we design our frames with unique personality that compliments our wearers own style. Our “Respect for Craft” ethos considers frame proportions, angles and curvature sometimes trial and error but always precise and never finished until the result is flawless. I want everyone to be able to enjoy all eyewear trends and to feel comfortable and confident wearing Eye Respect.”
