Andy Wolf Eyewear - One Love


Austrian handcraft is taking over the design market Hand work made in Styria is increasingly demanded on the international market for glasses. In 2006 Andy Wolf started with its first collection of timeless modern glasses, which not only fulfils highest aesthetical criteria but also provides ultimate functionality. Within the last year sales more than doubled while Andy Wolf is not targeting mass production but handmade luxury articles. 

“In contrast to numerous companies, who produce their glasses in low-wage countries in the Asia-Pacific-region, our products are entirely made in Austria”, comments Katharina Plattner, designer and managing partner of Andy Wolf. Beside stars like Hugh Grant and Eric Clapton, this philosophy convinces customers all over the globe. In that sense the Styrian designer and manufacturer of glasses emerged to an exclusive high-end brand. The label is present on all main international trade fairs ranging from Milan, Paris to Las Vegas.

  • “At the moment Andy Wolf achieves its biggest turnovers in France and Italy. The products target a particular group of people for whom their eyeglasses are precious accessories. Therefore Andy Wolf products are only available at selective distributors”, states Plattner. 


  • Due to the rising success of the  male collection Andy Wolf will soon expand its collection. 

  • Handmade in Austria Within the production process every item has to pass a series of manufacturing steps and quality cheques, which turns every Andy Wolf product into a unique piece of handcraft: 

  • „Finishing a pair of glasses takes several weeks as every single piece is handmade. 

  •                                       The spectacle frames not only stand for style and elegance but also make you completely forget that you are wearing glasses“. 

  • The spectacle frames are made of acetat plates and prevent tension with the glass, they are hard-wearing and long-lasting.

The "Problem" with being me.

When you grow up you go through different phases or times in your life.
These manifest themselves in the way you dress, the music you listen to, the political views you get or set as a standard for yourself.
At some point i got to an age where i thought "okay i have to be grown up now"
And that involved bundling up my past and letting it be - even looking at what i thought was right back then or belittling the essences of my former lifestyle (music, politics, etc).
The years i have spent living in Vienna where just everything - literally filled with pretty much every situation one can imagine.

I got empowered.
I was dragged down. I gained many new friends.
I lost many old friends. appreciation. rejection.
things that we as overall would call LIFE.

In all of this my biggest problem was to find a group i belong to or to have friends who are truly my friends - not seeing that the friends i had the longest already where all i needed. Very slowly and probably only over the last thre…

This artist doesn't need an explaination. I think the pictures speak/yell loudly for their selves.

so much to be said from my side - I find his art grand!


Hetzendorf BA Show 2013

Kind of a hassle was made about the Hetzendorf fashionschool BA Show yesterday.
So my expectations were set high.
were they met? - uhm... well partly. All in all the show was nice and well prepared but there was an overall look the every collection.
Very scandinavian - wide cuts - big "vibskovy" jackets and coats and such.  Also the current trend of 90s jackets and pants was   seen throughout the collections.
Hardly any cuts that caught my eye. But again - the overall look was okay. Just nothing really new or neverdonebefore designers. no key looks.
Some hat designer showcased 4 looks but only 2 hats? If they have one year to come up with 4 looks minimum i dont know why unfinished pieces are even allowed over runway? #thingsidontget
