We celebrate our 40th anniversary this year and among the many ways we have chosen to celebrate this moment was the production of a new limited series, with one of the most important brands of eyewear in the world, DITA, a brand that is a reference and needs no introduction.
With high-end glasses made in Japan, using only the finest and noblest materials, and which has millions of followers, DITA is the choice of countless personalities from the world music, cinema and arts.
Together with DITA, we re-edited FLIGHT 006, which became one of the biggest bestsellers ever when they were used by Tom Holland in the film Spider Man, Far From Home and Robert Downey Jr in the role of Iron Man in the avengers infiniy war, the famous Edith.
AndréOpticas X DITA Flight 006 is, however, even more special than DITA’s own Flight 006 of which only a few thousand are produced for the world market.
André Opticas FLIGHT 006 was executed in a special edition, 40 units, available only in André Opticas boutiques and in the online store.
Each piece has its own serial number and comes signed with the collaboration seal of the two brands. A unisex shape, built in Japanese Titanium, eyepieces in cotton acetate, titanium temples with end tips printed with the classic diamond pattern. A piece that is already a classic, turned into a true collector model.

The intricate metal patterns of the Brigade’s side shields recall the precise and beautiful architectural patterns that our Japanese artisans pass by each day. For an unexpected pairing with those elegantly precise geometries, Olivier Rousteing and Akoni have channelled the ‘80s pop vibe that has dominated Balmain’s most recent collections, playing with distinctive frame shapes that were popular during MTV’s earliest years and which still retain their rebellious edge today.
Made in Japan with high technical assets the frame is made in titanium the side shields are stainless steel and the temples are solid Japanese acetate .
On the microscope the hinge is titanium with threaded tube screw system.
