The Cate is one of our newer frame designs. This frame was designed while I was watching Cate Blanchet win an Oscar for Blue Jasmine in 2014. Cate Blanchet is one of Hollywood’s most talented and timeless actors whose classic style defines elegance and class. Cate Blanchett’s acting career began in the early 1990’s with her debut in the David Mamet play Oleanna, which she won the Sydney Theatre Critics’ Best Newcomer Award. After over 20 years in the acting industry, Cate has maintained her relevance and popularity with a thriving career. Like Cate Blanchet, this frame is a timeless design born from the 1950’s that is still relevant and stylish today. While it’s classic with a touch of cat eye, there is an edge to the frame. Whether you are looking for the classic 1950’s retro design or a modern frame with an edge, the Cate can fit all of these styles. Like the rest of our frames, the Cate frame is eco-friendly and hand crafted out of exotic and sustainable woods, which can withstand the 50 pounds of shear stress of a lens popping in.
