MEET DAVID ROSE, SALT. OPTICS HEAD DESIGNER:
TELL US ABOUT YOUR DESIGN PROCESS:
”One of the biggest things is fit, for us. So fit first. Get the fit right, and then we move into materials whether its acetate or titanium. Nature comes into play with the color aspect. As you’re looking at nature, it pairs color so well. You never look at nature and say ‘well, those colors just don’t go together.’ We’ve got a very nice organic color palette to our brand.”
HOW DO YOU ENSURE QUALITY WITH EACH PAIR?
“We want a quality product, that’s why we put so much time and effort into the frames we make. We select the best materials; we select the best factories in Japan. I’ve been fortunate to see the best and the worst that manufacturing has to offer. That’s why we work solely with factories in Japan, because the attention to detail, the craftsmanship, the quality, the pride that goes into what they’re doing is by far the best that I’ve seen”.
