An epigraph is a literary inscription—the line of poetry or the morsel of philosophy that appears on the opening page of a novel. It’s the detail that sets the tone for the whole book. A small element, but a critical one. In our case, it’s the subtle yet punchy metal design detail that defines six of our new frames.
For the eyeglasses in the group—think classic styles, ranging from cat-eye to rectangular—we employed a custom metal end piece with an integrated hinge, a wraparound accent that quietly elevates the frame’s aesthetic. The sunglasses strike another tone: modern, slightly eccentric shapes outfitted with eye-catching metal brow bars, plus custom metal end pieces of their own.
Each limited-edition pair was made in Italy from a high-quality mix of premium cellulose acetate and lightweight stainless steel.
