Exhibiting as Eque-M/Frency & Mercury, which is the name it will adopt in the future, the company will display Japanese titanium and acetate models.

CEO of the Toronto-based company, Mel Rapp, said: “The importance of eyewear to enhance personality is still often underestimated these days. The most observed part of the human anatomy is the face. And that's where the right frame that highlights your personality is just crucial.”

Designer at La Petite Lunette Rouge (LPLR), Alison Hemmes, anticipates positivity at Opti where it will showcase its autumn/winter 2019 collection.

“So far we have only heard good things about Opti. That's why we definitely want to be there in 2019,” she said.
