WIRE COLLECTION by VIU EYEWEAR

«Each individual pair is then handcrafted at a manufacturer in the Italian Dolomites or on Honshū Island in Japan in more than 80 manual steps.»   Designed in Switzerland with great attention to detail. VIU prescription glasses and sunglasses unite brilliant design with a transparent manufacturing process and fair prices. Our collections are designed in Switzerland by Fabrice Aeberhard, VIU’s Creative Director. Each individual pair is then handcrafted at a manufacturer in the Italian Dolomites or on Honshū Island in Japan in more than 80 manual steps. With its new materials, The WIRE COLLECTION constitutes a natural extension of VIU. The four new models are comprised of refined stainless steel, delicately rounded and slightly angular, creating a minimalistic and effortless look. The design of The BRIGHT and The VIBRANT follows a more angular form line whereas The VIVID and The SPIRITED offer soft round curves. With especially small hinges, the frames are also very narrow and thus featherlight. The different sizes and metallic colours of the light frames gently shape the face, and yet leave …

Zerezes Sunglasses

«We believe that creating products that last for years and can be repaired is one of the most responsible things we can do as a company to the world»   Zerezes started in Rio in 2012, while we were still studying design. We found an American wooden glasses brand and tried to buy a frame at the time. Unfortunately, they did not ship to Brazil, and with that we decided to try to make our own. This happened when we were at our firsts internships, and we realized that we wanted to chart our own ways, rather than following a path traced by others. Along with this, Rio de Janeiro was “under construction” because of the World Cup, Olympics, and port area revitalization. A lot of old buildings turned into new, and a lot of materials (including woods full of history, with great physical properties and at a zero cost of acquisition), began to appear to us. At that moment we just joined one thing to another and saw the opportunity to turn a simple …

To Die For by I and Me

«We looked at militaria and how fabric plays a huge part as a base for cover and shelter and as protection and function when in garment form.» The most relevant questions explored through I AND ME conceptually and aesthetically really stem from a personal perspective. The brand is trendless so we do not follow S/S or A/W but rather an idea or understanding that has been acknowledged through traveling and various mediums of art and culture. To Die For was inspired by the idea of fabrication in an installation setting, whether that is in a natural landscape or within four walls. The artists Christo and Jeanne Claude and Karla Black are good examples of our inspirations. We looked at militaria and how fabric plays a huge part as a base for cover and shelter and as protection and function when in garment form. Updated shapes and details reflect this story through pockets and waxed twill as well as relaxed ‘downtime’ options. We believe products designed with fabrication and function in mind never fade but are …

R-K Edition Shades by RELVÃOKELLERMANN

«Was dreaming about a squared shape which is contemporary, both for man and for a woman and so simple that it looks like you have already seen it. The sunglasses that one can wear every day.»   There is a motto that both Gerry and I follow as designers which is “if you can’t find it, then make it”. Throughout the years I developed an addition to sunglasses and nowadays spend part of my spare time searching and buying frames. Have been collecting amazing stuff, from the most unknown creators to brands like Moschino, Celine, Acne or Bluemarine. A fact is to find crazy good shapes is way easier than simple good shapes. The best simple shape ever might be the RayBan’s wayfarers. Often considered the best-selling sunglasses of all time they are a true classic of modern design. They became so iconic we can almost call them an archetype. Nowadays one can find many variations of the original shape designed on the 50’s or can be loyal to the classic and get the original …
