DITA | KINGSTON & GRAND RESERVE

wearing ray ban, oliver peoples and paul smith frames in the past, now i found, i think, the frames of my life: by DITA. all frames are made in japan. actually i took a double action pack: the KINGSTON and GRAND RESERVE. wow, the KINGSTON reminds me the first days i had to wear optical glasses: heavy. the KINGSTON frame is coloured “D. Tortoise and Burnt Brown”. two other colours are available. the GRAND RESERVE frame is also coloured in “D. Tortoise and Burnt Brown” but the frame seems not so dark. very nice are the „Matte Gun Metal Titanium“ details. this frame is available in three other colours and different sizes. thanks AKRAM and CHRISTOPH from ADLERS BRILLE for best advice and a special price.    ej

ALEXANDRA LIER | ON SPEED

last year i got the book SPEEDSEEKERS by ALEXANDRA LIER. i remember it was a commendation by a friend of mine. not very enthusiastic, he just told me, ”if you have some time, check ALEXs new book, maybe it could be interesting to you.“ yeah, WOW, it was, no, it is. ALEX lives SPEED. over 274 pages action packed with “scenes from the drag strips of bakersfield to the bonneville salt flats to los angeles, most devotional garages, revving engines and burning rubber with the worlds of foremost mechanics, racers and adrenaline junkies“ (ginkopress) ! SPEEDSEEKER is not just for gear heads because it covers the music, the artists and pinstripers, and of cours the pin-up girls. and actually you can watch the 127 pages VOICEMAGAZINE special edition „I WANNA GO FAST – SPEEDSEEKERS“ online. BUT the online mag is nice but don't miss the SPEEDSEEKERS book because it is much more exciting with much more stuff.    ej
