Seeing the metaphorical glass as half full is a sign of optimism. So what does it mean when your eyeglass or sunglass lenses are only half in existence? We think it means you’re ready to view the world in a sanguine light.

Don’t let the absence of a teeth bearing grin fool you, this gentleman is certainly happy with his playful negative-space round and square lenses… It’s written all over his mustache!

GRO Eyewear leaves sunglass enthusiasts more than intrigued with their rounded black Riley Frames.  The frame shape itself has been popular for some time, but it’s the lenses themselves that will have you doing a double-take.

Scandinavian countries have long been known for their positive outlook on life. Their fashion designers rarely fall short either, as we see in this stunning Henrik Vibskov tortoise frame that’s animated by a topping of oblong gray lenses. These glasses came out in 2010, but we will hold onto what they represent forever.
