THE LAST CHAPTER

THE LAST CHAPTER

Wooh, this sounds like a really dramatic blog post title now doesn’t it? Well, it is definitely not as dramatic as it sounds. It refers to the third and last chapter of Ace & Tate’s summer frames (remember the first and second chapter?). This one is all about a clean and minimalistic approach through the …

#SHADESOFCOACH

#SHADESOFCOACH

A few weeks ago – on our first ‘ok for bare legs’ day of the year – I visited Haarlem to test drive my new Coach sunglasses (two pairs of them, to be exact) for a project called #ShadesofCoach. Haarlem is a littler and quieter version of Amsterdam and I would say that the best …

‘SENSUAL FLOWER’

‘SENSUAL FLOWER’

Being a complete addict when it comes to sunglasses, I could not possibly be not a huge fan of Linda Farrow’s. Usually, I love me some practical shades. You know, the typical goes with everything type. But every now and then a more crazier one makes my heart skip a beat. Thank you Tracy for …

TORTOISE

TORTOISE

Some might say I have the best collection of coats, I like to think the same goes for my sunglasses. I developed this ‘thing’ for sunglasses in an early stage of life, when I used to buy all kinds of sunglasses while on vacation for what seemed just for the sake of buying them. One …
