Sustainability First

In 2024, the impact of our choices on the environment is more crucial than ever. Opt for eyewear crafted from sustainable materials like bio-acetate, recycled metals, or wood, instead of harmful plastics and nickel-based metals. COCO LENI leads the way in eco-friendly eyewear solutions.

Lens Quality - Generic Vs. Branded

Your vision deserves the best. Branded lenses often offer superior optical clarity, scratch resistance, and UV protection compared to generic lenses. While they may be a bit pricier, their performance and longevity make them a smart choice.

The Durability of Rivetted Hinges

Eyewear with rivetted hinges tend to be more durable and maintain their shape better over time, compared to frames without them. This small detail can significantly extend the life of your glasses.

Choosing Frames for Your Face Shape

The right frames can accentuate your best features. Whether you have a round, oval, square, or heart-shaped face, choosing a frame that complements your face shape is crucial for both aesthetics and comfort.

Round Face

Characteristics: Full cheeks, rounded chin with few angles.

Eyewear Choice: Rectangular or square frames help to add angles, making the face appear longer and thinner.

Avoid: Round frames that mimic the face's shape.

Oval Face

Characteristics: Balanced proportions, a bit longer than wide, with a gently curved jawline.

Eyewear Choice: Most frame shapes work well. Square, rectangular or even round frames are great choices.

Avoid: Overly large frames that could overpower the face.

Square Face

Characteristics: Strong jawline, broad forehead, and wide cheekbones.

Eyewear Choice: Round or oval frames soften the angles and add contrast to strong facial features.

Avoid: Angular and boxy frames that accentuate the face's angles.

 Heart-Shaped Face

Characteristics: Broad forehead, high cheekbones, and a narrow chin.
