Sama Eyewear

Sama Eyewear  Sunglasses Are The World’s Finest And Most Exclusive Luxury Sunglasses For Men And Women.

We had the pleasure to interview the founder and eyewear designer Sheila Vance.

Vance shot by Zoobs

What drew you to a Eyewear designer and specifically to starting your own brand?

There were several factors at work within when I decided to embark on a career in eyewear.  For as long as I can remember and since I was a child wearing glasses —  I felt that wearing eyewear ​was a “sentence” and a burden for people. I was different and stood out but not for a positive reason and children can be cruel so the downside of associations with eyewear always stuck with me. 

It was corrective and necessary but not joyful to find or buy because there was not a sense of fashion, fun and whimsy or a great way to express oneself like when buying a handbag or earring or necklace.

SamaShop

Very early on in my career ​I had stores and was importing and selling accessories including sunglasses.
​I thought that this was perhaps the most important accessory anyone would put on every day, framing their face and highlighting their features, giving a first impression to the world but there was nothing truly beautiful or inspiring about it. I found quickly that most of it was a bit boring or basic, uninspired or low quality. I found myself often thinking of what could be better or different to make a specific frame into a fantastic accessory for the face. I thought that eyewear could and should enhance your beauty not detract from it. I wanted people to feel happy, fashionable, beautiful and joyful buying and wearing their eyewear. I knew that an eyewear wardrobe was possible of great shapes styles, materials ​and looks from a beach weekend to work week and boardroom or ball room cocktail or couture. Just like clothing and other accessories​. So my research began from there to understand the engineering and manufacturing. 
Product
Then came the loss of my son which was of course life altering. I was unable to think about continuing on life in the same way I had lived before. I needed a creative outlet and wanted to find a business that could be an ongoing source of income to fund the foundation I was starting in his name. It was almost a calling as a way to fill my creative needs, honor my commitment to the Sam Vance Foundation to support drug addicted youth in their path to sobriety as well as prevention and to introduce a concept of beauty to change the perception of eyewear in the world. I needed to find and connect to something beautiful and find something meaningful to believe in again. 

The idea of a better vision – a clear vision and a better future for those wearing glasses and those suffering with addiction​ all came together for me through eyewear and Sama was born.​

From where do you get your design inspiration?
​For me, ​inspiration can come from anywhere. I travel extensively and enjoy art, fashion and textiles, architecture and design, nature hikes, and beaches around the world. I have found that jewelry, cars, and buildings have lines, curves, shapes, and details that I can translate into eyewear in meaningful ways. It is also easy to find inspiration daily in the amazing cultures and people I have met along the way in urban cities and remote locals globally.​
Precious_gry Kopie
From our our Sahara Collection which featured stained glass elements with ancient symbolism and rich colors of the desert to deCode: Los Angeles and our my newest technically advanced full metal Mechanix collection being introduced later this year, I continue to find inspiration in objects d’art, people and places I love and admire who push me to move the needle in terms of design and technology to new heights. 
HeartOfGold_PinkRose2-18krose Kopie
L​ocally in Los Angeles were Sama was born and raised so to speak,​ we created an entire collection that was inspired by the influencersdisruptorstastemakers and activists who make up the incredible city combining​ the golden luxe of Hollywood Glamour and star power with intricate specialized techniques for an overt the top look with hidden details representing how beyond the glitterati is the undercurrent of the culture to embrace issues and causes that difference in the world. 
HeartOfGold_GoldenWine1 KopieWhat are some of the materials you use in your collection?
We are eclectic in our materials and often we have introduced materials that were not traditionally used in the eyewear and optical business.  Titanium, Carbon Fiber, wood buffalo horn, acetate and precious metals  ( gold and platinum) are the main core of our materials but we have also included leather, feathers, pearls and processes or techniques such as laser cutting and lamination, enamel cloisonne, beads and Swarovski crystals in our pieces.

How would you describe the style of your Eyewear brand?

Just as our materials are eclectic our style is eclectic too. For Sama ​”style” is a broad based word where we appeal to a global, luxury shopper who is a individual ​who is an influencer not an adapter. We are a brand for those who are noticed of we have a sharp, strong varied range of styles and collections from sporty to glamorous,  simple to ornate, simple and delicate and wild and bold. ​While I consider the Sama products and brands in a category of our own in the premium luxury market, each of our collections can be defined and described as​ ​individual, unique, distinctive and of the highest quality.

Wildside-Obsidian

If you had to choose a favourite piece you have designed, what would it be?

This is such a hard question to answer — because I love so many of our frames for so many reasons and because each pair has a story and a journey that is so personal to me. 

​Each and every design starts a new creative process with new directions, twists and turns. I have often said that we have a great love affair with our collection.
myscha oreo Loft glasses-1
And for me, with this being my life work – Sama Eyewear is ​basically a romance​ -​ epic almost – with so much time, attention, passion and love poured into each pair. From my first inspiration to paper sketches to computer work, the natural elements and materials we select and the details we pour into each pair back and forth over several continents touching hundreds of hands.
samaeyewear
For me, each story has the most beautiful ending.  It is hard to choose because once the story ends – I start the next with the same intensity, love and​ commitment and I am in a new romance. There are certainly specific pieces or collections we introduced to the market that were influential or award-winning. Some were disruptive or elevated the market and countless hundreds were copied. Basically, I want someone to find their love story with their perfect frames to create their wardrobe to compliment their life. Eyewear is the most important accessory we wear every day to express our individuality and style, highlight our features, frame the face and give us a picture perfect vision in life. Sama is part of that vision. 
Stardust-Tidal
What is your life philosophy?

The name SAMA comes from the old Sanskrit meaning from no beginning no end.  A circle, a cycle, a continuation which applies to everything in life and something I believe. We can not look back, not change the past so every experience leads to the next and contributes to our path and pushing us onward and forward. I believe that we are always continuing on the journey and we need to take with us what is good no looking back no regrets​. I believe that everything happens for a reason.  A door may seem to close but another is absolutely opening even if you don’t see it at first. 

shades

We will only be our best if we surround ourselves with the best, brightest those who share the missions and visions we set forth in our “cycle” of business, friendships and life. We have only one life to live and since it is in essence a cycle with no beginning and no end, we need to be sure we include only the good in the cycle so it will continue with positivity and resulting good. I have come through considerable adversities in life and have found a path to a happy and successful life and business – but it did not come easy and it did not happen to me, I had to create the intentions and make it happen for myself with great people at my side​.

Silent cruising superyacht launched

Launch of the world’s first Fast Displacement with hybrid propulsion: Project Nova now christened HOME!

50m Project Nova by Heesen Yachts - Low res 2 Kopie

Escape a world full of noise…

Heesen launches 50m Home with silent cruising                                                                                        IMG_7038

The acclaimed Dutch shipyard Heesen, has officially launched the Fast Displacement 50m Home (formerly Project NOVA), this weekend in Oss, The Netherlands. Built in with hybrid propulsion, her technology makes her the first of a new breed for the shipyard. The Fast Displacement Hull Form offers fuel efficiency due to the use of aluminium, and above all Heesen’s ability to build to the highest standards whilst maintaining weight control. These technicalities prove she is not only an ultra-efficient, low fuel-burning yacht, but also one of the quietest on the oceans, offering the ultimate luxury: the option to cruise in silence.

IMG_7037

The silent cruising mode can reach up to 9 knots, all while remaining as silent as when anchored, creating one outstanding effect: sheer silence on the seas. Heesen’s in-house naval architects devised this hybrid propulsion by creating two sources of power: diesel mechanical and diesel electrical. Either or both sources can be used at once to provide less noise and vibration.

Heesen 17850 Project Nova Kopie

The option allows her captain and crew to start early and leave the port without waking the owners and guests. What better way to wake up, than already at sea to watch the sunrise?

ST1_UPPER-SALOON_V4_01 Kopie

To determine exactly how one’s experience on board Home can be enhanced by this silent cruise mode, Heesen worked closely with Professor and sensory expert, Barry Smith. Looking at the activities guests mainly partake in during an outing at sea, the obvious daily activities are to enjoy good food and wine whilst anchored but also whilst cruising.

ST1_Main-Deck_01 Kopie

Professor Barry Smith’s research shows that Home will allow guests to fully enjoy the small luxuries of life, by stating:‘Our research has shown that the brain’s processing of taste is affected by noise, which reduces the tongue’s ability to detect salt, sweet and sour. The beauty of Home is the  ability to run at a sound of around 46 decibels — the sound level of softly falling rain – enabling those on board to enjoy food and drink to the full with no diminution of taste’.

Heesen believes that ‘silence is the ultimate luxury’.

The acclaimed Dutch yacht builders continually strive to complement technology and design. This stunning lightweight aluminium piece of technology is wrapped in an elegant design package with exterior lines by Frank Laupman at Omega Architects and interior styling by Italian designer Cristiano Gatto, appointed by the owner himself.

Culinary Secret

tomeurest

 

Located at the luxury boutique hotel Sant Jaume on the Balearic Island Palma de Mallorca.

A classic Mallorcan cuisine concept where product and ingredients from the Balearic Islands take centre stage to showcase the main dishes of Majorca with a special nod to the city of Palma and its surrounding area. Tomeu’s objective is for “even the most local to become universal”. The restaurant roots have become a starting point to explore and discover through taste and our other senses.

mesa_del_chef_final Kopie

The creative team at the restaurant is led by Tomeu Caldentey, the first Majorcan chef to be awarded a Michelin star.

At Tomeu service is as important as the cooking, participation and dedication to reintroducing the value of a restaurant’s role by reviving the conventions and rhythms of its great past and adapting them to the modern day.

Also they have a wine selection that reaffirms their commitment to the same mission as the cuisine’s. A journey through aromatic notes and memories that begins in Mallorca and the Balearic Islands and then explores the most representative wine-making areas and their most characteristic varieties with the ultimate aim of harmoniously marrying with the dish.

BARTOMEU MACERADOS & CO.

At BARTOMEU the tradition and artistry of an age-old technique: maceration. At the restaurant they only use natural products and the best distillates in this process. By macerating they can again offer classic cocktails with a personal touch and a surprising range of colours. Infusion, maceration, memory: the spirit of a vermouth bar combined with the elegance of a cocktail lounge.
