An Italian Adventure by Blue Magic Eye
14th September 2012 Italian designers Ciro Tugnoli and Guya Montermini (above) have themed their new eyewear collection around a mysterious treasure hunt. It’s a fun adventure based in Bologna, the historical city where Guya and Ciro were born, live, create their frames, and a city they love. “The Italian landscape was chosen for this project to transmit our values, and the true importance of ‘handmade in Italy'”, say the designers. The hunt is planned by a young man for his girlfriend, as they tour Bologna’s Old City, and discover wonderful little shops and landmarks – plus great new frames from the “Euforia” collection.
Metal and acetate combine harmoniously in the frames – some featuring beautiful Mazzuchelli acetates from 1970 that Guya found in an abandoned factory. “Euforia” and other lovely designs by Blue Magic Eye will be on display at Hall of Frames in Zurich next month. www.bluemagiceye.com Hall of Frames Zurich 14th and 15th October 2012 www.hallofframes.ch JG
