Adler Semi Rimless

Our Adler glasses feature a subtle teardrop lens shape, steel nose bridge and steel wire frames. In this semi-rimless update, we've taken a style that has traditionally been considered a conservative look and given it a BN twist. These specs are super-light, subtle and won't dominate your face while offering a stylish update on a classic design.

    This frame is made using acetate

    This frame is made from acetate, a natural cotton (yep, they are plant based) that is comfortable but also very malleable, ideal for heating and cooling to get the perfect fit. We source all our acetate from an industry renowned company with over 150 years of experience in producing premium quality acetate.

    Metal

    Metal as anything

    All our steel frames are plated in either gold or silver (yep, real gold or silver is applied using a traditional technique called electroplating). Essentially each frame has an electric current run through them to allow the gold or silver to evenly cover the metal surface. This improves the overall surface quality of each frame and increases resistance to corrosion.

    Optical Lenses

    Our optical lenses

    Each lens is custom cut just for you. We believe that anti-reflective coating, scratch-resistant coating (also known as multicoat), and smudge-proofing are necessities, not luxuries. These come at no extra cost on our lenses.

    Use protection

    All frames come with a complimentary case to keep your glasses safe from dust and scratches on-the-go. They also come with a soft microfibre lens cloth for when they need a deep clean.

    Let’s get technical

    Our German engineered barrelled hinges have been tested to more than 100,000 uses! That’s right, after 100,000 tests they were still working in perfect order. We always use the highest hinge-barrel count a frame will allow to add strength and to ensure your frames last their longest life with you.

    It’s all in the details

    Our custom wire cores feature our BN wordmark, face shape engravings or wave pattern (a homage to our coastal roots) and are designed in Sydney, German engineered and crafted in China.
