FEB31st is expanding the eyewear landscape with its use of colour, Italian design, and ecologically harvested wood from Canada. Designed by Valerio Cometti and handmade in Italy, FEB31st was the first eyewear brand to combine the naturalness and warmth of wood with the energy of colour. In each piece, 13 layers of FSC certified wood are stitched together to create something unique, appealing equally to contemporary and classical tastes. FEB31st allows the wearer to embrace the combination of ethics and aesthetics to create their own unique sense of style.
“Keep it simple. This was my starting point, having worked with colourful, overdesigned products for several years as a distributor in the optical business. It is still my motto.” Jacob Kilsgaard
Kilsgaard eyewear embodies simplicity through contemporary, elegant design that both compliments and reinforces the style of the wearer. This sleek collection is designed in Denmark and handmade in Italy, merging aluminium, colour and polarized lenses by Carl Zeiss, with an almost obsessive passion for detail. Kilsgaard keeps its gaze ahead of the trends – watching how they evolve – yet staying grounded in the classic designs that have outlasted decades. They're not here to revolutionize the world of eyewear. They're here to re-introduce, in their own package, what's proven to work: minimalist aluminum.
L.G.R. is born from the original vision of its founder, Luca Gnecchi Ruscone and blends together traditional Italian methods of craftsmanship, lens technology, and a history that dates back to colonial Africa. The result is a genuine product where virtues from the past are transmitted into contemporary spectacles. All models are created with the concept of an everlasting object intended to accompany the traveler on endless journeys filled with lasting experiences. The color palette of the collection is oriented towards harmonious nuances of warm and natural shades that are found in the savannahs of Africa or the panorama of the Italian Riviera.
