Great Article from Sheila Vance of Sama Eyewear.  Sheila truly understands luxury and is the driving force behind Sama Eyewear, Badgley Mischka Couture Eyewear and Loree Rodkin Couture.  The Eye Bar is proud to have the Sama Family of Eyewear at our boutique. Stacey has sold Sama Eyewear for over 10 years at her different stores in the past.  Sama frames may be the most well made & designed frames in the world. We could not agree more with these words on their website

"Sama Eyewear is the world's finest and most exclusive ultra-premium eyewear company.  Founded by internationally renowned designer Sheila Vance, Sama Eyewear introduced the world to luxury fashion eyewear and remains the standard by which all others are judged.  Always on the cutting edge, Sama Eyewear is proud of its many design and technology firsts including the introduction of 100% Pure Titanium to the optical industry.

All Sama Eyewear collections (Sama, Loree Rodkin Eye Couture, Badgley Mischka Couture Eyewear, and Badgley Mischka Active Eyewear) are manufactured, assembled and finished by hand in Japan using only original designs, the costliest materials and most advanced production techniques.

Sama Eyewear is available in exclusive optical shops and boutiques in 40 countries throughout the world, as well as at “Destination: Sama” locations in the U.S., Europe and Asia.  A portion of Sama Eyewear’s annual proceeds are donated to the Sam Vance Foundation, a non-profit organization whose mission is to prevent drug use amongst teens and young adults, and to help young addicts get on the road to recovery."

Why It’s A Must-See: If you have yet to make it to the area’s newest shops, now is your chance to get personal with the goods you’ve been hearing about through the grapevine. Featuring fall looks from five hot rookie retailers (NV on Washington, Klutch in Town & Country, Rung in Rock Hill, Boutique 83, and The Eye Bar in the
Central West End and Sole & Blues—which isn’t “new” so much as a mainstay in The Loop, but has recently relocated, resulting in drastically-expanded inventory), an under-the stars runway will serve as an ideal setting for the fresh-and-sexy lineup.
