Contini’s spirit is retro chic yet infused with a contemporary soul
Vintage style, modern appeal – this is the concept behind Oliviero Contini eye-wear. It brings a touch of elegance from times gone by, with clean and understated lines for Him and contrasts of lights and details for Her.
The mood is inspired by Manhattan of the early 50s – lively and effervescent birthplace of high society with its parties, artists and jazz.
For men the prescription eye-wear frames come in square shapes where the use of acetate is skilfully calibrated with elements in metal such as the frame fronts or details on the hinges or temples. This gives the glasses a unique appeal and personality. The palette takes its inspiration from years gone by, using classic colours such as grey, black, blue and tobacco in perfect Savile Row style. The offerings are suitable however for the modern businessman, enriched with an understatedly intellectual and cultured spirit.
The ladies instead can show off subtle, glamorous touch, such as a jewel detail inserted in the temple or a dusting of glitter, barely discernible. The attractive frame
fronts, slightly butterfly in shape, frame the face to reveal an allure of innate class. The colours are never too strong but instead are identified in shades which map out a timeless style, underlined above all by the black and white versions – the iconic pairing thats a must in a lady’s wardrobe.
Charm, class, understatement defines this brand, gifting the real luxury which cannot be seen.
