OtrO Eyewear is a Brazilian brand of handmade glasses created by the designer and artist Érida Schaefer.
The word "OtrO" is from Spanish and means "other". The glasses are so exclusive and different that you will want another ones!
Designed to innovate and confirm the status of the glasses as accessories, they elevate style and personality in an universe with so many "blacks and browns"!
Each piece and design are developed and manufactured with the best quality in the Eyewear’s world. The glasses are made by hand from beginning to the end of the process, using the best Italian acetate. Each edition is limited, made on a small scale.
All prints are exclusive, painted by hand, digitized on a special fabric and inserted in the acetate still in the manufacturing process. No massive production, no visible label on the temples...an invite for exclusivity!
I am Érida Schaefer, designer, 57 years old, from Florianópolis SC Brazil. I graduated in Visual Arts from the State University of Santa Catarina in 1988.
The brand was born from my old passion for glasses, combined with the desire to have colorful frames for exclusive prints.
Discovered by an English journalist, the brand Erida Schaefer, initially with the name LaFrida, printed a page of the magazine 2020Europe, leader in the European optical segment, sharing space with seven other prominent designers like Stella McCartney, Kuboraum, Henau...( I swear I didn't know most of them). It was at that moment that I thought: this can become a business!
In 2018 I showed my collection at New York Fashion Week and after that came the invitation to exhibit the glasses in stores and art galleries in NY. And my glasses go around the corners of the world ...!
Thank you for your visit!
