Nick Campbell is a hot young Sydney designer who is cleverly catering to the fashion conscious who are looking for eyewear that is in no way common-place.
He’s just launched his first two frame styles (inspired by the 50s and 60s and available in four different acetates with four different lenses) and already he’s working on his next collection. While the first collection is ‘loveable classic’, the next will push the boundaries. “I’m bringing out two metal frames with an industrial feel – drawing aesthetics from the 30s and 40s through to the Victorian era,” the 28 year old designer told mivision.
Nick said his aim is to design eyewear that is unique without damaging the wearability. “For me the most important thing is not to wear a show piece – I don’t want to design frames that shout but I do want to create something that’s unique and really interesting, frames that people can feel comfortable wearing.
Nick became interested in eyewear as a kid. “My parents bought me a great pair of sunglasses that I loved but I lost them. So I was always hunting around markets and through vintage shows trying to replace them. Over time I became hooked on collecting and now I have about 130 frames – not counting the ones I’ve sold or lost.”
Nick Campbell eyewear is distributed through five high ranking fashion boutiques and one Sydney optometrist who, Nick says, has had optical lenses easily and successfully fitted.
