Who We Are:
KBL is about vision. The vision of bringing artistry, quality, and design together in order to create a global eyewear brand that is both unique and timeless. Whether it’s from the metallic glint from a finish on a vintage guitar or striving to capture the ethereal color of beach glass in our daughter’s hand, KBL is constantly seeking a way to merge inspiration with design. Soldier Betty. Wild Promises. Russian Gold. At KBL, even the names of our frames are evocative. Sleek and sexy, our designs are bold. Textured. Whether it’s the juxtaposition of a small, metal detail within burnished acetate or a turquoise temple set against a tortoise frame, our glasses embody the same qualities of the urban architecture and culture that surrounds and inspires us here in New York City. KBL eyewear is for the person who appreciates artistry, design and craftsmanship. We hope our glasses do not dictate a style but, rather equip you for a journey all your own. Whether it’s travel or daydreaming, open your eyes and see the world through KBL.

Our Team and Factory:
KBL is committed to bringing you the highest quality eyewear, beginning from the first sketch of our designer’s hand, all the way through its final production.
Every member of our team is committed to seeing that our eyewear is fastidiously crafted. We are a young energetic independent group with over 40 years combined experience in eyewear and fashion design, development, manufacturing, marketing and sales; working for labels such as Oliver Peoples, Paul Smith, Michael Kors, Thakoon and Marc Jacobs.
We are enormously proud that our factory employs not factory workers who perform a rote skill, but rather artisans who have spent years refining their techniques, so that they truly understand what matters in producing a superior frame.
Raw materials sourced from Italy, Japan and Germany are sent to our factory nestled in a small, enclave of south-eastern China. There we have created an environment where our employees can achieve a balance of work and family.  We have set aside a portion of our factory’s land so that local farmers can produce organically grown food for our employees.  It is in this environment of mutual respect and commitment to excellence, that we produce the highest quality eyewear.  Combined with the original vision of our New York based design team with our extraordinary craftspeople, KBL strives to create eyewear that is the gold standard in the industry.
