They’re handcrafted in Italy from premium cellulose acetate and feature an uncommon construction. On the face of each frame, two layers of contrasting acetate are laminated together, the frontmost layer carefully sculpted down to reveal glimpses of the layer behind. The result: an arresting frame-within-a-frame effect. Add beveled temples on each side—the first full collection of frames we’ve ever released with this detail—and…sigh. (Like, a good sigh—no exasperation here.)
Acetates in this series come in rich, stone-inspired hues—from graphic Onyx Tortoise to moody Sable Horn to warm Rose Clay—and are paired for maximum visual impact. And all four frames (Stella especially) are generously oversized. All the better for remaining mysterious.
