I think we’re all aware how we have had to adapt and change in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. This most unforeseen situation has had an impact on everybody in countless different ways; no two experiences are the same. But there is commonality. Collectively, we wonder if things will ever be the same again. Whether it’s with a family member, a friend I’ve known for years or a patient I met that day, we talk about what matters. What really matters. What we value above all else.
What we value
We all treasure spending time with our loved ones, and we miss their company and the physical contact when we can’t see them. We appreciate the freedom to travel and to eat out and shop whenever we want. The technology that keeps us connected fills us with gratitude and we agree that our health is priceless. After all, we went into lockdown for the good of it.
I was furloughed for almost four months. During that time at home, I thought a lot about what material things I value. I realised that I have a lot of superfluities; there are so many things I can happily manage without. To me, value isn’t necessarily inversely proportional to the price tag; I believe that value is related to the cost per wear or per use. Alongside these calculable values are abstract ones. How things make me feel, how much I love, appreciate and enjoy them. In summary, I value things that work hard for me, that earn their keep by transcending seasons and trends and that make me feel happy.
STEPPER offers a timeless selection of designs for both men and women; there are no seasonal collections. Yet this family-run business is forward-thinking. The company embraces technology and has captured the zeitgeist for sustainability and conscious consumerism. STEPPER has reimagined and reengineered rimless eyewear.
New methods of glazing allow for a single touchpoint at the temple by using the latest UV bonding. This results in a single connection that is stronger than that in conventional rimless design.
STEPPER rimless designs are minimal, durable and reliable. There are no superfluities so they’re supremely lightweight, a characteristic which benefits the wearer and which reduces fuel during transportation.
STEPPER rimless styles deliver all-day comfort, a feeling of luxury and an unobstructed field of view. And that is invaluable.
