#myKBstyle with Kaltenbock Opticians

6 Crowd

On a rainy Tuesday night in November Toronto’s fashion lovers flocked to Kaltenbock Opticians for a private party hosted by two of the city’s respected fashion experts. Lance Chung and Afiya Francisco are both active in Toronto’s style scene and have spent much time working for some of Canada’s hottest magazines.

Along with their hosting duties the two styled six models in fresh fall finds and added finishing touch eyewear from Kaltenbock Opticians.

Grey, oatmeal and camel were popular colour choices for both sexes, as were chunky knits for more casual ensembles. Known himself for always being well suited, Chung featured double breasted jackets in both suiting and outerwear for men. Selected fashion forward Kaltenbock eyewear was predominately rounded and added extra bold confidence.

Kaltenbock Opticians have been in business for 50 years and curate brands and styles to meet just about anyone’s needs. I was drawn to these icy blue frames (upper right) from Italia Independent and think they would look rather swell paired with a crisp fitted white dress shirt and coordinating blue suit and tie.

Feel a little more daring? What about these red frames from Res / Rei to draw attention? Colour block these bad boys with something bright or go classic and simple with a stark black turtleneck. Heads will turn!

Guests were encouraged to find their perfect pair from Kaltenbock Opticians‘ offerings and then have local artist Beckie DiLeo create on the spot watercolour illustrations of them. Big thanks to DiLeo for my above #myKBstyle illustration featuring frames from Jacques Marie Mage, (see more images below.)

The next time you are looking to update your eyewear, head to Kaltenbock Opticians at 1560 Yonge Street in Toronto or 216-2180 Steeles Ave W. in Vaughan to find a wide selection of frames and helpful style savvy vision industry experts.
