Escher – Azure / 24k Gold


Hidden between forests, heaths, and fens, lies Oisterwijk affectionately called ‘The Gem in the Green’ in the heart of Brabant. All over the city you will see well maintained and groomed green spaces with numerous bike paths. The historical buildings, centuries-old lime trees behind the town hall, exclusive shops in the stunning and historic De Lind, and perhaps the country’s largest terrace with 6000 chairs all add to the unique charm of Oisterwijk. It is easy to see why people call this city a true gem with restaurants, terraces, shops, and a wide range of culture and historic sites to experience. We joined Ruud Panis Brillen | Lenzen to tell us about their full service optical store and to learn more about the beautiful city of Oisterwijk in the Netherlands.

The Saville featured by Jo Yana

— November 25th, 2017

French Blogger Jo Yana is passionate about new technologies, design, fashion and beauty. His elegant website covers everything from his discoveries in hi-tech design to must-have lifestyle items, which is certainly fitting for a feature on Leisure Society. His frames of choice are the Saville with clip-on sun lenses which he purchased from one of our favorite retail partners, Le Caribou Opticiens in Paris. His feature focuses on the performance of our frames when paired with ZEISS DuraVision BlueProtect optical lenses, a great combination for someone who lives a digital lifestyle in front of a screen. The convenience of our clip-on sun lenses are great for that necessary escape into the real world every once in a while.
