Making their entrance into the optical world in the late 1980s, Patrick Hoet and Wim Somers had their brilliance take the world by storm, all from a small optical shop in Belgium. They wanted to make glasses feel electric and exciting, after years of seeing lack of captivating spectacles. Everybody in the eyewear industry were “playing it safe”, Patrick and Wim had enough as life is just too short to wear boring glasses! They wanted to see glasses that spoke volumes of how bright the creative mind can be, designs the fashion world desperately lacked. They decided to work together and challenge the status quo of traditional eyewear design. Two years passed and their first funky, free, and energetic collection was presented, named Theo, a clever anagram of Hoet.
Theo is an eyewear brand that takes vibrant colors and unorthodox shapes and turns them into wearable art pieces.
