ralph vaessen knows a thing or two about crafting quirky and sophisticated eyewear. the dutch designer is quite a master in fusing classic shapes and quality materials into frames that make a defining style statement, and so much so, that celebrities flock to them like moths to a flame. ralph vaessen's a/w 2014 collection adds up to this reputation, presenting a range of men's and women's models that bear all the hallmarks of a trophy. all models are handcrafted by artisans in germany from natural horn, and obviously come with high-quality lenses. shown here are three men's styles from the collection that we particularly like. the ralph vaessen a/w 2014 collection is available at select stores across the planet, including barneys [new york], colette [paris], l'éclaireur [paris], excelsior [milan] and tsum [moscow].
