Werner Schreyer presents “Werner” Icon sunglasses
In Munich the artist presented "Unbreakable", a series of paintings inspired by the Gloryfy philosophy
When Werner Schreyer – glossies iconic top model and eclectic artist – decided to spend a vacation in the Tyrol in 2013, he certainly could not have imagined what would happen in the space of a few months.
He came across a Gloryfy frame by chance. Fascinated by its unbreakable nature, he decided to create a series of paintings inspired by the frame. The central theme of his works is the fragility of human existence. To symbolize this fragility, the artist used an x-ray of his head combined with a collage in the shape of eyeglasses which, in contrast, represented protection and safety. The collage consists of photographs and newspaper cuttings of the significant moments in Schreyer's life and career, almost as if to indicate the personalistic character of the eyewear.
Based on this creative process, the desire to create eyewear dedicated to the artist came naturally and led to "Werner!", the Gloryfy Icon signature model – sunglasses in Havana with contrasting black temples and golden logo.
The pilot shape adds a glamorous touch to a frame that is lightweight and indestructible thanks to Gloryfy's innovative unbreakable technology. The STRATOS lenses in anthracite give maximum vision comfort combined with 100% UV protection: a real must for the upcoming season!
