People often think that fashion comes at the expense of function. Not so for Italian eyewear manufacturer SAFILO. For SAFILO, aesthetics, expert craftsmanship and wearability go hand-in-hand.
Safilo’s craftsmen are dedicated to their art. All details are uncompromising and carefully considered – from the materials used, to the patented technologies deployed so that each and every pair is built to last both in terms of style and functionality.
Artisan skills and advanced technology are at the heart of each Safilo frame, and the new collection is no exception. Using acetate, titanium, stainless steel and other metals, the new optical frames are a celebration of the company’s Italian heritage and “Made in Italy” know-how, with names like Calibro, Canalino, Buratto, Bussola, and Lastra. Featuring a mix of styles in smooth, rounded frames as well as sharp, squared specs, the gorgeous frames are not only durable, they are unbelievably comfortable. Thanks to a new, exclusive hinge that ensures a perfect fit, along with ergonomic anti-slip tips designed to gently hug the temples, Safilo specs feel as natural on the face as the natural elements they were inspired by.
