Frency & Mercury

Handcrafted designer eye-wear took centre stage at Front Row at Raffles Hotel with a showcase of the very exclusive and limited quantities of Frency & Mercury glasses by Japan-based designer – Eque M.

Bold, functional and handcrafted.

Yes, I feel that it is important to repeat that fact because it simply boggles my mind how such frames could possibly be made by hand(!)

Frency & Mercury glasses are designed with the very thoughtful consideration of catering to the Asian nose bridge (or lack thereof).

Pictured above and below are some of Jo’s and my favourite picks, which retail for between $400 to $600 approximately, depending on style and design.

Available (in very limited quantities) at Front Row, Raffles Hotel Level 2.
