Enhancing the natural beauty of the eyeglass wearer with a frame that provides lasting balance and comfort. A minimal approach to design while blending fresh natural combinations of colors. Quality, innovation of materials, wearability, and color are the core values of Bevel. Bevel doesn't want the brand to be the coolest or hottest or most recognizable. Instead they are committed to maintaining a classic but minimalist esthetic, using truly high-quality materials with Japanese production and constantly seeking innovation so glasses look, fit and perform better. What I love too about Bevel is that the styling is clean with no initials or writing on the sides what so ever.
Manufactured by one of the few artisan factories remaining in Japan, the Bevel specs collection was born into existence in 1999 by two legendary optical personalities in Richard Mewha, a Brit sales exec/designer based in New York city and Rick Nelson, the Missouri optician, sales exec and sometimes farmer. As one of the very few USA based high end optical companies, Bevel continues to forge it's own path to success both here in the USA and internationally through it's collection of bold and beautiful eyewear designs. Form, function and quality are the bedrock of of this stunning collection.
Think about it: millions of people wear glasses and yet most only have one pair, perhaps with a sunglass alternate. And yet, most people wear their glasses day in day out, in the office, while working out, at a black-tie affair, and while just flopped on the couch watching television.Richard Mewha and Rick Nelson think about this a lot, which makes sense as they're in the eyewear business and founded their own eyewear company, bevel, in 1999. They're committed to making eyewear as essential to personal style and self-esteem as apparel or cosmetics. After all, while wearing prescription lenses corrects an optical need, it also brings attention to a primary asset: the face. Eyeglasses are universal, not gender specific, easy to maintain, and play a crucial role in our lives and daily discourse.
During the 1990s, Richard and Rick were colleagues at the optical shop of Aspen (OSA) and began seeking out one another's advice and relying on each other as sounding boards. Their professional friendship seemed unlikely aside from their name, on the surface they appeared to have little in common. Richard, with the easy demeanor of the international traveler, is English, loves living in New York City, and enjoys independent music and film and classic literature. Rick, meanwhile, is a clean-cut all-American, born, raised and still residing in suburban Kansas City, having learned the fundamentals of the eyewear business working behind the counter of his father's optical shop.
The two recognized their differences would be a strength in establishing a business together. Through his work with OSA and Alain Mikli before that, Richard was confident his modern, minimalist design esthetic would appeal to customers. Both men were determined to create a company that opticians would enjoy dealing with. By establishing the headquarters in Kansas City, rick knew he could find employees with the Midwestern warmth and sensibility to ensure outstanding customer service. While Richard focuses on design, keeping up with the cultural zeitgeist, esthetic trends and opportunities for international growth, Rick ensures that all other facets of the business are running smoothly. Neither wants the brand to be the coolest or hottest or most recognizable. Instead they're committed to maintaining a classic but minimalist esthetic, using truly high-quality materials with Japanese production, and constantly seeking innovation so glasses look, fit and perform better.
Through it all they strive to meet their ultimate goal: to help people feel good about themselves by making them look great. If everyone wore bevel frames, the world would definitely be a better-looking place in more ways than one.
