ABSOLUTE LEISURE IS A WAY OF LIFE

While many people only dream of enjoying moments of absolute leisure, for designer Shane Baum, it’s a way of life and the rallying manifesto of his company, LEISURE SOCIETY. Baum strives to create products that offer inherent value; heirlooms or timeless pieces, if you will, that are designed to last forever and created, no doubt, for future generations of grand children to fight over.

LABEL PROFILER – LEISURE SOCIETY: The LEISURE SOCIETY collection offers classically inspired designs that embody the ideals of the CFDA designer – one of the highest achievements in Fashion. Baum takes it to heart when he states, “only the best is good enough” – he creates his collections with only the most elegantly sumptuous materials.

Frames for his Handcrafted Eyewear collection, for example, are cast out of pure 12k, 18k and 24k gold plated titanium and are accented with rich, finely etched buffalo horn and diamond insets. Highest quality polarizing CR-39 lens top off the frames and are available with anti-reflective UGR12™, Diamond Cast™, and hydrophobic coating. With every refined detail meticulously polished and hand-crafted to deliver the utmost in style, LEISURE SOCIETY specs are sure to appeal to the Material girl and boy in each of us.
