DITA Flight 006 for André Opticas

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.

BALMAIN Brigade II

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.
The nose pads are beautifully made in ceramic with beta-titanium nose pad arms, and sun lenses: 4-base high contrast CR-39 with three-layer anti-reflective coating.

Akoni’s Signature Design Elements

Akoni is inspired by the sophisticated artistry and extraordinary level of detailing exhibited by the world’s finest and most collectable wristwatches, writing instruments and other uniquely personal items that symbolize individual accomplishment and have stood the test of time. Reminiscent of an exquisite antique fountain pen, Akoni’s elegantly grooved titanium temple cylinder is just one example of how Akoni as reinvent the best of the past for today’s modern world.

TVR – True Vintage Revival

TRUE VINTAGE REVIVAL

A piece of soul into a pair of eyewear

There are no rocket science tools or methods used in the making of True Vintage Revival (TVR) eyeglasses. Known as the home to handmade eyeglasses, Sabae, Japan has created a positive impression to connoisseurs of the industry as a breeding land for talented artisans who have developed their skills and an eye for precision that are said to be better than machines. And here’s where every piece of TVR eyeglasses are made.

Using mainly hand tools that are passed down from master to apprentice, most of these museum-worthy pieces carry some of the most prolific history in eyewear evolution. Vintage design features are greatly highlighted in the making of the TVR classics. These include the keyhole-bridge, functional spear rivets, 7-barrel hinges, and miter cut techniques that are boldly executed with the unrivalled skills and technical know-hows. Piece by piece, every one of a TVR eyewear is honed with decades of expertise by selected artisans from Sabae.

Each pair of glasses starts with the “Datum Expression Size” technique, a specialized measurement method commonly used during the 50s in Japan to obtain the subtle balance of the eyewear. TVR also refers to only original templates and blueprints in the creation process of these first-class traditional optical frames. Once the frame takes shape, the craftsmen will begin adjusting every little details with intricate care and precision.

It is easily overlooked that what is now called vintage was once brand new. As TVR continues to bring forth authentic vintage styles with traditional skills, iconic designs and high-quality materials, we are also paving the way for classic vintage eyeglasses to once again be mainstream through true vintage revival.

Design of Perfection

MORÀ BUSOLI stands for highly exclusive products that had never been conceived from a productive point of view so far. Nowadays, in fact, Morà Busoli is the only brand in the world that can realize frames with curved and sinuous shapes by carving solid marble and precious stones.

They achieved it by mixing an ancient handcraftsmanship, as the one of the sculptor, to an innovative technology as the one of the robots and precision engineers. Their history begins with the selection of prestigious and unique materials like every single piece of MORÀ BUSOLI collections.

Every detail comes from the combination of sophisticated technologies and creativity. The harmonic shapes emphasize the design of perfection. The long and meticulous process characterizes the exclusivity of the productions: as many as 193 steps are required to complete one single pair of Morà Busoli spectacle, most of which hand by hand. That makes at least 18 days of work to create a frame no-one else in the world could ever duplicate. The result is a one-of-a-kind piece of eyewear, absolutely unique: as unique as the one who will wear it.

Designed by Patrick Hoet, Morà Busoli is a timeless, 100% made in Italy piece of art.
