THE MENTOR Grey Tortoise / SUN THE MENTOR Grey Tortoise / SUN

THE MENTOR is designed as a tribute to the classic Pantos shape. Pantos comes from “pantoscopic” which means “wide view” or “seeing everything”. Just like the mentor who, thanks to his experience, has a comprehensive view of the bigger picture.

Originally a favorite among intellectuals, this frame’s rounded lenses and high temples had a breakthrough in pop culture and are a staple in eyewear fashion to this day. When designing THE MENTOR, PORTRAIT envisioned a model with an easily readable contemporary taste, without losing the original feel of the classic shape from the 1950s. With its classic look, this model is the natural heir to The Creator but with an updated and more sturdy feel thanks to the implementation of a higher amount of acetate.

Size: 49□23 145
Total frame width: 139,5mm
Color code: (C.17)
Material: Acetate

NEW ESSENTIALS is a collection of minimalist and highly wearable frames that shine through a “less-is-more” approach. With a heritage yet contemporary identity, this collection feels like the natural evolution for the brand, after years of learning through experimental capsule collections. The challenge was to take a step forward while keeping an eye on the past, maintaining luxury and price-quality ratio intact.


Ultimately, PORTRAIT designed a collection that is above-all understandable and accessible, at a time where consumers are manifesting a greater need for high-quality eyewear solutions of tangible value.

 

In PORTRAIT ® we care about creating the best quality handmade eyewear with original design. All our frames are the result of the experimentation of form, materials, craftsmanship and Art-driven inspiration.
