Oscar O'Maliey - Ques an Chârdé

Check out the just released video from budding hip-hop artist Oscar O'Maliey for his debut single 'Ques an Chârdé' which was shot at our Soho location and features the musician in several of our frames. He sounds great and we also happen to think he looks pretty fresh in our specs if we do say so ourselves!

Leigh in her Mustafa Specs

We were delighted when Leigh, a friend of the Selima Optique crew and writer of the blog Marvelous Kiddo, shared this gorgeous portrait of herself in our Mustafa frames painted in water-color by artist Samantha Hahn. And while she looks stunning, its the sublime ethereal nature of the work that really won us over.
