elima Salaun, Vik Muniz and Liz Swig, and their friends celebrate the launch of Happy View by Vik Muniz
September 22, 2015, 12:00am
Lizworks commissioned Vik Muniz and Selima Optique to create a limited edition eyewear design titled “HAPPY VIEW.” The design is a lenticular photograph in a lucite medicine cabinet-like box, consisting of nine colored sunglasses. One can now genuinely see the world through the artist’s eyes. Vik Muniz is a Brazilian artist and photographer. Muniz combines everyday objects such as diamonds, sugar, chocolate syrup and
garbage to create bold, ironic, and often deceiving imagery drawn
from pop culture and art history. His work is exhibited worldwide.

Leaving New York Fashion Week behind, Selima was in Las Vegas yesterday to participate in the high-end designer panel discussion of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (edCFDA) at Vision Expo West and we're sharing here some snaps from tweeter and instagram. Also Selima introduced Coco & Breezy (by the way, still have a few of the unique collaboration pieces left!!
Wonderful news! This past weekend, we launched our collaboration with Chalk NYC. Taking place in our Soho location, our store was transformed with beautiful decorations and many, many balloons.
An eye-catching array of colorful and glittery frames for children, delicious treats for adults and an addition of the fabulous craft writer, Lesley Ware, the event was a success. Our lovely friend June Ambrose popped in with her girls in tow to join in on the fun. (Aren’t they just adorable?) Many thanks to all who were able to attend the launch party. It was such an exciting day!

Taxis, pizza, bridges, sexiness and fashion come
to mind when we think of New York City. Every year, a wonderful gathering
occurs in Osaka, Japan called the New York Fair. This year, Hankyu Department
Store celebrated New York City with our very own Selima Salaun in the center of
it all. Selima joined fellow New Yorkers, each, artists in their own ways along
with a select group of companies and individuals for a fair unlike any other.
Selima Salaun caught taking a selfie!

Handmade indeed: Thanks to illustrations by Isak Zenou and Karen Goins, our booth at Vision expo East felt a bit like Selima's office and atelier in NYC.
During the show, Selima with other founders of the
CFDA Eyewear Designers
hosted “Speaking of Design”, a reception/discussion about creativity in the eyewear industry.
Quoting Steven Kolb, CEO of the
: “Eyewear as a design discipline is often overlooked with an emphasis on function and not on creativity.
