Three established brands are debuting new eyewear at the Silmo optical tradeshow, which runs from today to Oct. 7 in Paris.
BALLY The 101-year-old Swiss brand will unveil its first collections of sunwear and optical eyewear for men and women through a partnership with TWC-L’Amy. The 49 styles — split almost evenly between sun and prescription silhouettes and retailing from $230 to $450 — run the gamut from classic aviators with red leather accents at the bridge to thick plastic cat-eye frames. Sunwear will hit Bally boutiques in December, with distribution expanding in January to the brand’s retail partners. Optical frames will be released early next year too.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
