Luxury Attitudes

Luxury – a sophisticated, comforting aesthetic. Sometimes it is a mysterious, extravagant manifestation that fosters a Bon Vivant spirit. Luxury is often identified with exquisite service; high-end art; global travel, expensive yachts and a multitude of other wealthy delights. Nowadays, the concept of luxury expands in our consciousness frequently as the appreciation of lost traditions. The optical world welcomes you to experience and enjoy contemporary variations that unite old world crafts with modern technology and improvements - resulting in extraordinarily beautiful designs. The new luxury is understated and discreet – pompous attitudes are replaced with savoir-faire taste and modest understatement. Prestige and noble materials set the foundation for luxurious frames that expand the borders in eyewear: buffalo horn sustainably resourced; Italian marble; gold, silver, titanium and fine woods, plus precious jewels all adhere to the shift that is now less materialistic with more experiential inspirations. Quality, refinement, and awareness define this uniquely personal experience – and the exciting opportunity to enjoy the brilliance of stunning optical creations.
