My partner's coworker has a Camu - not for me, personally, but different strokes. It looks good on her coworker and I'm sure you'll enjoy it. Congrats!
Thank you! Hardly anything about them anywhere online. Are they that old or that disliked? Possibly both?
Either way, love em' thus far!

I doubt that it's due to dislike. I just don't think they've been made for a few years and were probably overshadowed by other round frames in the collection.

These 4 will make 8 total.

Existing frames include; Marquina (RX), Argyle (RX), Surplus (Sun), Agar (Sun). Of the new frames; Beige, Nero, Skye and Ochre, I’m thinking I’ll convert the Ochre to RX as well. I was initially thinking I’d make the Skye or Beige RX, but those frames with their respective lavender and brown lenses are amazing, so I don’t want to touch them.

The other frame I still want for RX is Rover, but if I’m buying 9, then I’ve gotta get 10. Guess I’ll save that spot for another cool collab that comes around (like the Graphite Enzo from Leidmann that I missed out on).

I realize transitions are popular with many and would give me the change to wear all of these frames as RX and Sun, but I’m still hesitant due to my naturally lit work environment, so I stick with separate Sun and RX frames. I would feel uncomfortable with ‘sunnies’ on in the office.

I’m a big sneaker head and I love to match my fits with my sneakers to some extent. This variety in Enzo frames lets me match my frame as well.

Big fan of the Enzo myself. First off-the-rack frames I’ve found that fir my huge face and head—plus they don’t slip off my nose! Posted a pic a page or two back wearing the beige ones.

I’d love to get a translucent green pair, but looks like nothing similar has been made in years.

I would bet that there's a retailer with a pair in the Rover colorway somewhere out there - you'd be surprised how many of these frames turn up long after you would think they're all sold out. I'd start making some calls if you want them badly enough.

Yup Rover. It’s on my list as another RX pair.

At the trunk show they had a new model called Mishima (spelling?), and it was in what I thought was Rover, but it was a new color and slightly darker.

Hoping Enzo comes out in this color at some point.

Yeah, saw the Rover but the lenses are too light for my liking.

But these are awesome and still available:

A couple extra photos of Dahlia from my dealer today.

Considering for wifey (unsure I could pull them off myself), but she always goes for more mainstream brands (Prada, Gucci, etc). I’ve gotta convert her to JMM 😂
