PARIS — Buyers were watching their purse strings at the recent edition of the Silmo eyewear salon here. However, since demand for eyewear remains relatively healthy, many distributors and brands have seen positive growth this year, and remain confident they can ride out shopper jitters with wider product and price options, including modernized, subtle twists on vintage and classic frames, plus unique, but easy-to-wear styles.
Held at Villepinte in the north of Paris, the four-day event ended Oct. 2.
