LYE black / red lens (C.02) LYE black / red lens (C.02)
Size: 47□15 145
Total frame width: 140mm
Material: Galvanized steel + Acetate temple tips + Titanium nose pads

Finish: Matte
Handmade in Italy

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.

The Glitch series to which this specific eyewear belongs, have been inspired in the Video ART movement, where the artistic innovation happens within an intangible “place”.


The Glitch is an “error” that often becomes the element of beauty. Pixels, image fragmentation, noise and coloured bars are some of the resources of this fascinating artistic expression.
 

Having taken inspiration from Video ART, Glitch is the only PORTRAIT ® series that has been interpreted through a 2D material, therefore stainless steel. The metal is yet enriched with acetate and finishes that result from photo-cut and galvanisation, in different colours and textures. Limited edition eyewear of precious craftsmanship. 


Lye - These 90’s inspired oval-tiny eyewear, either optical or sunglasses, reminds us of Leonard Charles Huia Lye, the New Zealand’s artist from early twentieth century, known for his extraordinary experimental films and kinetic sculptures.

Having been portrayed himself wearing tiny tinted sunglasses, PORTRAIT reinterprets the artist’s eyewear selection through an original and fragmented geometric composition, metal pieces assembled together that resemble Lye’s patterns, surgical instruments and stratification.


Like all our  products, these sunglasses are entirely handmade in Italy by genuine artisans who combine traditional craftsmanship with a high-technology manufacturer, pursuing the highest quality standards.

The production process adheres to environmentally-friendly and sustainable practices. All of our suppliers have an energy-efficient philosophy and guarantee a slave-free workplace.


Opticals and sunglasses are the results of deep design research and experimentation, strongly influenced by art-history movements and dedicated to its most iconic figures.

Coherently with the project’s art soul, the communication is based on the promotion of emerging artists in fair cooperation that co-endorses both players, the brand and its fascinating testimonials.
