The Austrian glasses label Andy Wolf introduced two new lines during the SILMO 2015, Paris’ optical fair. The newcomers are called ANDY WOLF LOVE and ANDY WOLF SOUL and are here to complete the already existing ANDY WOLF WHITE HEAT.
In case you haven’t heard of Andy Wolf before: after what some would declare as an odyssee of finding oneself, Katharina Plattner finally did. Working in the sales of Andreas Pirkheim’s glasses, she simply started improving his designs. And what she did wasn’t good, it was great! So great that in 2006 she founded Andy Wolf, together with Pirkheim and Wolfgang Scheucher. For nine years now the brand has maintained its manufacturing site – yes the glasses are actually handmade – in Hartberg, Styria, where 58 employees work on the very limited models, 500 per design and color.
As so often, quality was rewarded: today, Hugh Grant, Eric Clapton and Lady Gaga wear Andy Wolf designs.
Whereas ANDY WOLF SOUL covers customers’ basic needs with classic cuts in classy colors, ANDY WOLF LOVE shows the designer’s passion for eye-catching, extravagant and exciting designs. An homage to the 1970s, the LOVE glasses send out a tasteful statement that is both, fashionable and suited to daily use. They are definitely eye-popping, but in an elegant rather than in a attention-deficit kinda way!
