A congregation of footwear enthusiasts walked in on a gathering of vertical spectacles. They admired the stacked arrangement of the glasses and wondered how they could emulate the same without stepping on each other’s toes. The answer was inconclusive. However, the triad of spectacles foresee panoramic possibilities for the stylish men’s shoes. The two groups agreed to walk along and continue looking; together, towards the horizon of a collaborative vision – The Spectashoes Ensemble by Nader Zadi.
I’m Nader Zadi (Nah-dare Zah-dee) and I design custom made, vintage eyewear. I come across interesting observations in my work and my travels and I’ve decided to share some of them here.
My blog will be about the creation and design of beautiful objects that relate to fashion, style and luxury. I am fascinated by all things that are artisanal, intricate, and hand crafted in a way that engage and captivate the senses.
In the coming weeks and months, I will use this space to share my appreciation for the finer things in life. I’ll be discussing the elements of my craft and other finely made products.
Nader Zadi is sought after for his unrelenting passion for designing and creating classic and sophisticated eyeglasses and sunglasses which have been described by some as works of art.
As the founder of Customeyes, an exclusive vintage and bespoke eyewear atelier in New York City, Zadi specializes in custom eyewear.
Zadi expertly assesses his clients’ faces to make frames that fit, function and flatter each person’s unique facial characteristics. His meticulous craftsmanship promises a distinguished look for anyone who wears one of his designs.
Handcrafting each pair using old-world techniques, Zadi transforms his creations into contemporary and stunning designs for today’s fashion.
According to Women’s Wear Daily, “Nader Zadi has created a way to match tailored suits and couture gowns to custom-made eyeglasses.”
Forbes describes Customeyes as “Eyewear for those frustrated with mass market options. “
And The Wall Street Journal says, “Custom glasses made to account for differences in people’s faces, with an eye to determining the most flattering looks for his clients.”
