ERKER’S 1879 introduces special reserve models

Erker’s 1879 has presented the two new additions in their limited-edition Special Reserve collection, models Bouvier and Deardorf. The two optical models elevate the design of their heritage collection with a new polishing process, adding a range of new custom elements throughout frames, and upgrading from their standard brushed metal to a shiny silver.

Combining generations of expertise, the Bouvier and Deardorf eyeglasses embody the history of the heritage brand through detailed insignia, telling stories of the Erker family in each little detail. Found on the temple tips, a goggles icon notes their making of Charles Lindbergh’s goggles in the first ever nonstop transatlantic flight, while their year of inception and the generations of Erkers to run the business are found on the opposite side. On the interior of the temples, a custom-designed wire core is meant to resemble a microphone, nodding to the one-of-a-kind legends from their hometown and some of the big-name celebrities that have sported an Erker’s frame. Ferris wheel rivets join the temple with the custom German hinge, matched by the decorative rivets on the face of some frames in the collection.


Model Bouvier, named after a long-time sales rep of the North Carolina territory, features a bold and expressive silhouette. A sharp cat eye edge gives this feminine eyeglass a dramatic feel, accentuated by a narrow rectangular shape, thick rims, and a sleek straight brow. Each custom designed and exclusive to Special Reserve, Bouvier is available in four acetate blends: Burgundy Night, Feathered Tort, Antique Tort, and Mossy Smoke.

Model Deardorf was named after a veteran sales rep for a handful of their Northeast territories, and is designed with a classic square shape. Thicker brows with a gentle curve at the bridge offset the thinner lower rims, paired with a wide temple for a bold, sturdy style. A classic saddle bridge complements the thicker build, ensuring a comfortable fit for all-day wear. Matching the authentic rivets along the temples, four Ferris wheel rivets decorate the face of the frame, drawing the eyes upwards for an uplifted look. This feminine frame is available in four custom-designed colours of Blue Grey, Green Sand, Grey Brown, and Black Red.
