ESE is proud to announce the release of seven new optical styles in its Diva Eyewear collection. Five metals and two acetates comprise these new creations.

Design Gallery Launches a New Collection from VANNI

Design Gallery Launches a New Collection from VANNI

TANGRAM is an age-old Chinese puzzle made up of a square divided into seven different geometrical shapes, each in one color. The art of the game lies in creating as many complete figures as possible, using combinations of these parts. “A TANGRAM champion is a champion of talent and wisdom”, runs the legend. VANNI’s Tangram glasses add a touch of stylish wisdom to the expression. Made exclusively by the VANNI style center from slab acetate, the Tangram texture is all cubes split into irregular pyramids, alternating against a deep crystalline background which may be see-through or solid in multiple color options. TANGRAM acetate comes in six different block colors, and new for this season the fronts sport combinations of transparent and solid plain color. The color contrasts bring out the overall effect of the material and, seen against the light, generate a kaleidoscope of reflected color – singular eyewear indeed. Style V1982 Colors include Transparent Blue w/Tangram Black/grey; Transparent Red w/Tangram Black/grey; Black w/Tangram Burgundy/Violet Style V1981 Colors include Transparent Blue w/Tangram Black/grey; Transparent Grey w/Tangram Black/grey; Black w/Tangram Green/grey Design...
