250 Steps, 71 hours, and 13 Craftsmen.
Each of the designs is crafted by hand in the renowned eyewear workshops of Sabae, Japan – requiring up to two years and as many as 250 steps to bring to life. This is eyewear created through 50 years of experimentation and creative exploration: each frame reflecting a unique journey from concept to construction.
Masters of Metal, Sculptors of Acetate & Architects Of Eyewear
Using the finest metals in the world — titanium, stainless steel, sterling silver, and 18k solid gold.
Their Japanese acetate forms are sculpted exclusively from an organic plastic derived from cotton and cured for over three months prior to construction.
Every hinge, temple, and component used in their eyewear is thoughtfully considered and uniquely designed for each collection.
Each finished creation is an art object unto itself — as pleasing to the hand as it is to the eye.
