Obsession: Alain Mikli gold frames
Glasses are an investment, or so says French eyewear maker Alain Mikli. He has just released a series of limited edition frames that will set you back HK$78,000 a pair. Exclusively designed for men, each style has a solid-gold front (the gold is a combination of 18 carat pink and 14 carat yellow gold) and buffalo-horn temples. Each frame is handmade and there are three models to choose from. The glasses come in a leather case with a buffalo horn certificate of authenticity. Available at all Alain Mikli boutiques including Wellington Street, Central, tel: 2523 0103 and Lenscrafters at Ocean Centre, Harbour City, TST, tel: 2735 3311.
