Our Hypothetical Nominees for the 2023 Eyewear Awards
Awards season has a little something to offer everyone. Maybe you’re one of the film buffs who tune in to see whether your favorite flick is getting the proper attention it deserves. Maybe you wait all year to check out which new designer clothes are making their debut on the red carpet. Or maybe, like us, you like to see which glasses your favorite celebs are sporting for the big night.
And speaking of glasses, isn’t it about time the World of Eyewear received some well-earned attention? Where are the awards for our most ground-breaking designs, our standing-ovation-worthy classics, our underrated gems? Here at Eyeconic, we say: no more! Let’s start a new tradition—the Eyewear Awards!
Okay, maybe it’s not a real awards ceremony, but we’d never miss a chance celebrate a few of our favorite frames. So, after some careful thought, we’ve adapted the Academy’s most popular categories into our own, and picked out some of this year’s biggest contenders.
And the nominees are…
Best Sellers (Best Picture)
Like any great film, these glasses are the perfect combination of form and function. Their sturdy and stylish rectangular frames, with a splash of color at either end, make them an excellent choice for anyone looking for a well-rounded, sporty fit. NIKE 7090
What would awards season be without a remake? Inspired the 1950’s rockabilly look, these square, lightweight frames never go out of style. RX5154
The epitome of the crowd pleaser, these glasses from Calvin Klein have a fun, light-hearted appeal perfect for rectangular, oblong, or oval faces. CK20527
Best Men’s Glasses (Best Actor)
If you often find yourself jostling in line with other theatergoers at midnight premiers, you’ll need a pair of glasses that are as strong as they are stylish. These slim, sleek Oakleys are made of durable yet lightweight O Matter material, which is 25% lighter but twice as strong as traditional acetate.
