A little history behind Optyl and the Eyewear you may choose to add to your collection:
"Frames come in a plethora of vibrant colors, shapes, & sizes made of many different materials; but they are all pale in comparison to the majesty of Optyl. No other eyewear material can surpass the infinite colors, durability, & shapes it can be contorted into. Most materials can barely keep up with its durability and ability to keep its lustrous condition. Dare I say, it is the best material for framework of all time (Hyperbolic statement is hyperbolic).
Optyl was developed by Wilhelm Anger in 1964 for the Carrera eyewear line. Its benefits are mounting, and range from aesthetic to health related. Optyl was made to be hypoallergenic, so it could be safely to be worn by those with sensitive skin/allergies.
The material is also extremely durable and is able to take a beating while keeping keep its beauty. It is 20% lighter than the leading plastics used in the industry – making frames super easy to wear for hours without irritating the wearer. Another feature of Optyl is its ability to keep its luster for years on end. I myself have many pairs of Optyl frames that were made in the 1970s, that still look they are fresh out of its case. The most important aspect of Optyl though, is its unique “Optyl Memory”. This amazing feature means that the Optyl will revert back to its original form after being heated. No matter how warped the shape gets, it will always return to its original shape! This might not sound exciting to the average person, but eyewear connoisseurs will know that it is a life saver. I don’t think anything is worse than hunting down a rare frame to see it’s been warped by poorly cut lenses, or the frame has been fitted to an unusually large head. Luckily with Optyl, you can simply take a blow dryer, expose the frame to its heat & watch it reshape itself.
After its creation, Optyl was licensed out to countless eyewear design companies. But the most prolific of them all, had to be Christian Dior & Playboy. The team at Christian Dior broke boundaries with Optyl; from the beginning they pushed the material to its limit by making huge alien and bug like oddities."
This collection is revolutionary.
