Titanium is an element that brings to mind strength. Named after Titan, the Greek god. Titanium appears in everything from lacrosse sticks to medical equipment and now glasses without prescriptions. It’s no surprise that the 22nd element in the periodic table rose to fame given it’s just as strong as steel, but only half the weight and it’s twice as strong as aluminum. Importantly, when it comes to glasses titanium is corrosion resistant and lightweight.
The Present frame is impressive. It manages to combine pure titanium with an understated flare. At just 8 grams—the weight of a cherry—you might forget you have this pair on until they fly off in the middle of the dancefloor. Oval shaped faces will wear this best given the rectangular shape of the frame. Full black rims are a timeless look that passes through fashion trends without losing its appeal.
