A love for beauty, a passion for Italian goods and a wealth of artisanal expertise: these are the key ingredients in the new Oliviero Contini eyewear collection, the historic Area98 brand driven by the creative genius of the Italian designer by the same name.
Oliviero Contini has always been fascinated by Italy’s manufacturing traditions and it is from here that he has drawn inspiration for a new range of eyewear. Timelessly elegant, the range combines a vintage feel with modern appeal to create an unmistakeable style. Each model is produced using artisanal mastery and impeccable finishes in order to bring out the cultured, intellectual spirit of the men and women the brand is targeted at. The result is a line of unique frames that are eminently wearable and never ostentatious, made using the best materials and according to the highest qualitative standards.
The new men’s models, in acetate or metal, feature both square and rounded shaping and use a range of classic colour options. Highlights include the metal OV4259 and OV4260 models: the former is semi-rimless while the second features a double bridge, with both pairs showcasing delicate colour contrasts and original patterning on the acetate temple ends.
