Give me a break! ... At the most, that bizarre and sophisticated element of our eyewear could come from a more or less faithful and thematic combination or – why not? – from the distinctive, dandy-like contrast of plaid and tiny check textures, based on various color palettes, which I chose for the frames, establishing a sort of dialog with the same fabrics for jackets, suits and trousers. I think Wim Wenders, a very clever man, once said that if "life is in color, reality is in black and white."
Well, and I hope the iconic German director will forgive my boldness, I'd like to completely overturn his concept of a univocal vision in black and white. I have the propitiatory and perhaps crazy ambition that our eyewear can help enjoy the reality of life in color, even better if it is joyful and vibrant and happy, because from what I know, it seems to be the only life that we’ve been given.
I wish this miracle happened every day. Eyewear has become a fundamental accessory. A refrain of Battiato many years ago said that there are those who wear sunglasses to add charisma and symptomatic mystery.
