Meet Bellinger Eyewear.
BELLINGER EYEWEAR: TRUNK SHOW APRIL 9 – APRIL 10, 2019
High quality for those that like to stand out.
Bellinger was founded in 2003 by designers Malene and Claus Bellinger Diederichsen. The ambition was, and still is, to design high quality eyewear for those who like to stand out. Bellinger was originally named after Malene’s maiden name. Bellinger’s focus is to make a statement and leave a lasting impression with that extra flavor that makes it interesting.
It can be the shapes or the details – it can be the unique color combinations or the cuttings on the frames – all things that make Bellinger stand out. Bellinger consistently focuses on innovation, creating and designing innovative eyewear with a sense of something new and unique – they try to go where nobody has been before. Whether it is the shapes, the colors, the material, cuttings or unique detail. They do not go for the easy or simple solution. People wearing Bellinger can be any age group. They like to be colorful, be vibrant and experience life! They do not want to fade into the background – they want to stand out. They have great personal style – their own. Some want to be colorful and passionate others want to be cool and casual. But all of them express joy and personality, life and passion.
Bellinger – makes you feel
Bellinger feels very strongly about designing eyewear – to Bellinger it is personal. Taking great pride in designing each frame and every collection that makes each face look its best. When Bellinger designs it’s a feeling of raw energy, joy, happiness, excitement, and passion … and they want you to feel the same and look your best. Bellinger works at this with every frame designed. Nothing makes Bellinger prouder than seeing the frames on faces of different people around the world.

Entourage of 7
Los Angeles, Est. 2007
Entourage of 7 is a luxury eyewear brand based in Los Angeles and influenced by the city in which it originates. In the City of Angels – an ever-changing multicultural melting pot, they find joy in pushing forward, constantly reminding them to always be courageously creative. They aim to design beautiful spectacles for rockers and rollers, lovers and sinners at Venice Beach – the birthplace of Entourage of 7.
The design philosophy is based on the heritage of Los Angeles eyewear – but not resting there. Always keeping their eyes and mind open to new ideas they manufacture their eyeglasses in Japan and Denmark. A great mix of tradition and cutting edge technology ensures a constant flow of creative ideas pushing our designs to new limits. From classic Japanese hinges with double rivets hammered into zyl acetate frames to laser cut aluminum alloys and titanium they honor both the vintage traditions and embrace progress. Just like Los Angeles is constantly changing – so is this one-of-a-kind brand!
WHAT DOES ENTOURAGE OF 7 MEAN?
7 – the Good Luck number was also the amount of members at the founding meeting of the company. 7 industry insiders deciding to follow their intuition and dream starting their own eyewear brand. Founder Jakob Talbo is to this day still head of design at Entourage of 7.
In 2013 Entourage of 7 became a part of Bellinger House – not only a strategic decision in positioning the brand but even more the result of a longtime friendship between Malene and Claus Bellinger and Jakob Talbo.
Handmade in Denmark.
Blac is designed and handmade exclusively by a specialized production team in the Bellinger House, Denmark. The top-secret novel production process allows for each Blac frame to get special attention and craftsmanship, ensuring a unique design of each frame. All frames are custom made by hand for each individual customer with hinges, screws, and tips tailored for our Blac frames.
Blac is an innovative designer eyewear brand, revolutionarily made from carbon fiber reinforced with titanium. This produces a lightweight but extremely strong frame. Blac is the world’s first adjustable carbon fiber frame, with the patent to prove it; they developed the world’s first adjustable carbon frame!
BLAC – THE FABULOUS STORY
Begins with designer Claus Bellinger and his fascination of McLaren’s carbon-composite MP4-1 body, which rocked the Formula 1 World at Silverstone in 1981. The MP4-1 was the first full carbon Formula 1 body, designed as a molding, rather than the traditional series of flat aluminum panels mechanically fixed together.
The reward for challenging conventional thinking was a gigantic leap in strength and sturdiness that would revolutionize racing car design. The characteristics of the carbon fiber and fiberglass composite are its unique woven surface, an unusual lightness combined with great strength.
