The Retro Touch Made Contemporary

The Retro Touch Made Contemporary

The Swing collection brings the exuberant popular rhythm of the Forties to some evergreen shapes, a constructional revival of vintage eyewear favorites given new life thanks to modern technology and unmistakable VANNI style. In the metal version VANNI reinterprets those memorable glasses with their colored brow line, highlighting the top edge of the front in a darker shade of color. To complete the range, there are some broad roundish shapes in bright colors, the rims picked out by the thinnest of Havana sheaths. In acetate, the women’s shapes are vaguely retro, the men’s broad and comfortable; a dappled based combines with solid transparent monotones, while the brow line is marked by tone-on-tone or contrasting material.
