  • Why Portrait Eyewear?
    We believe that in this rapidly and ever more increasingly transparent society, the new economic models need to have the courage to build something up from a true essence, reducing the distance between perceived and real value and generating cooperative environments. Our product design is totally original. Our shapes have been carefully studied to create a product with a NEW character. When creating PORTRAIT Eyewear, we dedicated a long time to the study of the shapes, choosing a distinctive way to design our frames. To this matter, other than implementing original materials and new technologies, we offer shapes whose inspiration comes from elements associated to the visual arts fields in general, such as the polygon-art trend and the minimalistic-contemporary design.
