Taking inspiration from the successful limited-edition model ISOLA BELLA, the new ORTIGIA sunglasses by ULTRA LIMITED combine the nostalgic feel of the iconic retro silhouette with a modern flair: a colourful striped design at the top and sides of the frame front. Fused into a classical Black or Havana base, the colour patterns are created after an intricate production process lasting 40 days. With more than 200 colours to choose from, 12 layers of Mazzucchelli 1849 acetate tones are carefully bonded together one by one using a special layering technique. The result is a bold, feminine design created to “exude confidence and charisma”. Handmade by artisans in the Italian region of Belluno, where so many iconic frames in the history of eyewear have been designed, each model by ULTRA LIMITED is unique and cannot be replicated: “All these years we have had opportunities to create regular “identical” frames”, explains Tommaso Poltrone of ULTRA LIMITED. “But we have never done so. We want to maintain this incredible one-of-a-kind individuality for every single style”.
