Q+A with Karla Paniagua 

What is your favourite part about fashion week?

My favourite part about fashion week is how creative and inspired people get. I love seeing how everyone expresses themselves through their clothing and accessories.

How did you get into fashion?

My first job was as a fashion stylist in a PR company in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I used to help style for the magazine editorials. From there, I fell in love with the world of fashion, especially editorial fashion style.

Whats your favourite pair of Pared frames?

That's a hard question, I have been trying to decide between the Big Mamma and the Petite Amour for 20 minutes now. 

What's 3 words you would use to describe your fashion sense?

I believe the mix of the 3 words: Asymmetrical, Classic and Creative.

Diamonds or pearls?

Diamonds

HEELS OR FLATS?

Heels

Would you classify your style as?
fancy or LAID BACK

I would say there are days I am super fancy, and days I am more minimalist. It really depends on my mood!

ABOUT

ABOUT PARED

What does the brand stand for?

The word ‘pare’ means to cut something back, shave it, or refine it; this is the fundamental design philosophy the brand stands by. The name is also a play on words for pair – each product is named after a famous pair: Bread & Butter, Puss & Boots, Romeo & Juliet, and the brand is known for its collaborations and cross-industry partnerships in fashion, music, art and jewellery. 

Pared Eyewear continues to cement itself as the leading Australian Fashion Eyewear brand as it continues to launch its new collaboration lines with Australian designers.

Pared is known for its collaborations with Australian Designers Bec + Bridge and P.E Nation and Holly Ryan Jewellery as well as International identities The Salty Blonde and Resort brand Staerk & Christensen. 

Pared releases 2 collections per year focussed around the fundamentals of its principles of clean lines and simplicity with its signature notches.


THE PRODUCT

Our eyewear components are chosen with a long life span in mind.

FRAMES – The frame is handmade using high quality 6mm acetates. We use a number of quality suppliers with core acetates from DAICEL and Mazzucelli. Acetate is lightweight, flexible & hypo allergenic. The properties of acetate allow it to retain a vibrant pigment in many different shades and combinations.



WARRANTY – We pride ourselves on a lovely product made with care and attention to detail. We offer a custom pared case & pouch to protect your glasses as well as a 1 year warranty against manufacturing faults. We also offer a repair service for our glasses. Please contact us – hello@pared.com.au for any enquiries.


OPTICAL FRAMES & PRESCRIPTION – Most of our sunglasses frames can be scripted with an optical lens. Please contact us for more information.


LENSES – Pared offers a selection of both solid, gradient & mirror CR39 lenses. We use high quality Japanese lens suppliers as well as Carl Zeiss optics. Our lenses are lightweight, shatterproof and scratch resistant with a great clarity of vision. Cr39 lenses have superior heat and chemical resistance. All pared lenses meet the strictest Australian & NZ standards as well as International standards. The lenses offer UV400 protection and 100% UVA & UVB protection.


METAL DETAIL & HINGES – All metal is either titanium (known for its strength and durability whilst being very light) or stainless steel. Both nickel free & hypo allergenic. SCREWS – We use OBE German rubber dipped screws to ensure a strong and durable hinge connection for long term wear.
