Oscar Wylee has rediscovered and reworked vintage styles whilst maintaining the elegance and subtle refinement of times long past.
Our designers go through an intricate design process, incorporating contemporary design with classic and retro-inspired shapes and textures.
Each eyeglass frame is meticulously crafted from the finest quality acetate and passes through many stringent tests before it reaches its finished and polished final state.
CUSTOM CELLULOSE ACETATE
Oscar Wylee frames are individually cut from premium sheets of Italian-made acetate. Eyeglasses made from this versatile material are extremely resilient, and can produce a vast array of vibrant colours and structures. These frames are complemented by some of the sturdiest hinges for absolute comfort and durability.
Oscar Wylee uses only the highest quality lenses as the standard. They are then coated multiple times with specialised anti-scratch and UV-proof coatings.
TRADITIONAL HAND ASSEMBLY
Our craftsmen employ traditional techniques and complex procedures by hand to achieve the high level of refined artistry requisite in the perfect pair of eyeglasses. Each frame passes through numerous stages of precision sanding and hand-polishing before reaching completion.
HIGH INDEX LENSES
High-index lenses are much thinner and lighter than standard lenses and reduces the magnification of the eyes. We recommend high-index lenses for those with spheres greater than +/-2.
