Handmade eyewear has an instant allure, and the Italian independent labels producing artisan collections of high calibre continue to show their magical creativity and commitment to tradition, even in these harshly competitive and difficult “Covid” times.
One of the new models at the Italian label Essedue – the 8c – combines the classic inspiration of a cat’s eye shape with a beautiful sinuous style derived from looking at flowers in their natural setting. Made in a substantial Mazzucchelli 1849 acetate, the small family-owned Essedue factory (located in Irpinia near Naples) has become one of Italy’s best kept secrets in eyewear production, creating designs born out of love for craftsmanship and a passion for authentic Italian elegance and individuality in style. The frames carefully balance comfort and design, with attention to details and small inserts of colour on the frame front and temple ends, defining a special and uniquely crafted character. Each frame has a small red ‘logo design’ on the inside of the temple tip, a signature of the brand and a sign of authenticity and style finesse.
