Mercura NYC for Mercura Sunglasses round pearls circa 1989

Photo by Ron wan
Our pearls have been photographed with other collections as Anna Molinari for Blue Marine by Helmut Newton around 1990's, sold to Vivienne Westwood for her bridal Couture shows, and collected by other designers, but unmistakably our original frames as shown in early New York scene magazines 1989, in Henri Bendel windows in the 1990's and on the cover of Fault Magazine Winter 2010. The frames were sold to Parisian optical shops in the 1990's. We continue to make this style.

Vogue Italia 2010, styled Lori Goldstein, Photo Steven Meisel

Mercura NYC for Mercura Sunglasses featured in a series of pages of Vogue Italia, fantasy Runway, the issue featured Karlie Kloss on the cover. The Runway story is big and photographed in New York City. Our sunglasses are featured on lots of the pages, but we have never posted them on our blog before(there are more in the previous frame of blog also) as some viruses kept our blog down for months. In retrospect and future, the luscious colors, festive celebration of hot energy really feel like the images are timeless.
The crystal frames with crystal leash on this page are also featured in W summer 2010 with a cashmere dress by Chanel

Taylor Swift in Mercura NYC plus article about mirrors ineyewear
We started making mirrored eyewear and jewelry decades ago. We actually have big mirrored painting constructions also, from the seventies and recall Mary McFadden showing our huge mirrored ear rings flowing right to the shoulders in her Couture Fashion show in 1990. Most recently Curly Velasquez (LA) and Indashio (NYC) presented our mirrored sunglasses in their Spring 2011 collections. We will be blogging photos from Thailand for Spring 2011 with mirrors. This earlier link about Taylor Swift in the NY Times magazine section is an interesting angle. Please check it if you have a moment!
