  • New Arrivals, Part 1.

    Tuesday, November 16, 2010

    Silmo orders are coming thick and fast! Too many to mention in one post so I will break them down into individual brands for you. To get us started, let’s talk about Danish eyewear brand, Kilsgaard.

    They have expanded their acetate collection called “The Afterparty” to eight frames now. A new Model 103 has been released to replace the 103 that never was… Last year, I saw a fantastic round eye shape that was to be model 103. Unfortunately, not many other people liked it so it never made it to the collection however, Jacob Kilsgaard very kindly allowed me to have some of the prototypes which I can offer you now. These prototypes were hand made in Japan and are just beautiful. I only have two, one in black and one in a striped brown. If you want to see them, you’d better be quick!

    The replacement 103 is just as tasty but in my opinion, both could have existed in the catalogue. Below is a photo of the new 103 in striped brown. There are more Kilsgaard aluminium frames to come but we’ll have to wait a little longer for those.
