The Claude is a fresh take on a classic square frame- The Claude frame is a compelling hybrid of metal and plastic which gives these glasses a cool look that combines classic styling with modern materials. The matte texture of the frames is also a favorite design detail. Stylish as well as lightweight, once you put on the Claude Green you won't want to take them off. The thin plastic lenses are also crystal clear and scratch and impact resistant. All Gabriel + Simone reading glasses come with a case and cloth so upkeep is not a problem.
