The collection pays homage to original, unique, typically Italian form of craftsmanship, with a bouquet of flowers, hand-crafted using the art of micro mosaic
Expert craftsmen use the heat of a flame to ‘stretch’ fine Murano glass, eventually producing rods 2-3 mm in diameter. The filaments – in different colours and shapes creating life-like replicas of leaves, pistils and petals – are then cut into micro tiles and positioned individually by hand.
With just 70 models available world-wide, Full Mosaico is finished off with around 1,000 micro tiles. The bridge and temples are exquisitely decorated with a realistic floral pattern made up of flowers like pansies, gerberas, frangipani and forget-me-nots.
Measuring only a few millimetres in size, the tiles are arranged one-by-one to create a floral pattern – a motif much loved by designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.
Every piece is truly unique, demonstrating just how craftsmanship can work hand-in-hand with fashion to produce creative, awe-inspiring results. It takes an artisan four days to make these accessories.
Along with the limited-edition Full Mosaico, the collection also includes two types of sunglasses and two prescription designs, their temples embellished with different-sized micro mosaic inserts.
The 4215 is a rounded, cat-eye design. The temples are decorated with a micro mosaic pattern featuring 600 micro tiles (300 on each side); the mosaic covers almost the entire length of the temples.
Available in black with polarised lenses, havana and red.
This model offers a stylish, squarer shape. The front sections of the temples are finished off with micro mosaic details made using a total of 150 micro tiles (75 on each side).
Available in black, havana with polarized lenses and red.
