We’ve all gotten sucked into the never-ending, tail-chasing conundrum that is choosing a pair of glasses. At first, they all appear so different: the slightest change in frame color or sharpening of an angular line can play havoc with your facial geometry and you start to wonder how you’ll ever decide which one is right for you. Then, inevitably, after a parade of round, rectangular and square frame iterations, they all start to run together and look the same.

Los Angeles-based designer Jerome Jacques Marie Mage’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection is meant to address your frame foibles with a collection that “breaks from the banality of retroactive fads and imitative fashion.” Mage has over two decades of experience in eyewear design to call upon for his freshly-unveiled Optical and Circa collections. While each is rooted in the idea of creating a wholly unique piece of eyewear, the design inspiration between the collections varies. The Circa collection is inspired by history and Mage’s extensive archive of frames from cultural icons like Bob Dylan, Pier Paolo Pasolini and more.

Next up is the Optical collection which repurposes four of Mage’s signature frame designs for use with prescription lenses. Crafted from Japanese acetate and built with a special concealed hinge and custom hardware rivets, the assortment encompasses modern and classic standards of taste.

Jacques Marie Mage's first eyewear collection will be available at Black Optical and Union Los Angeles this spring.
