When was the last time you stopped to appreciate sight? We take it for granted, but Robin Maas knows exactly how valuable it is. Over the years she watched her mother gradually lose not only her hearing, but also her ability to see. This made Maas appreciate the value of sight all the more. ‘Precious Sight’ is thus designed to celebrate the gift of vision. Beads, mirrors coloured chords and bright plastics take eyewear far beyond the functional in a collection that is high in fashion and fun. When not needed, the frames can be worn as a necklace, where they remain every bit as eyecatching.
