“We are excited to tell you that the VINCENZO are handcrafted using a long-forgotten technique from the ‘70s that combines havana and tortoise acetates, lending authentic old-school kudos to these beauties. Chic Havana Classic is seamlessly blended with a fierce Puma acetate on both the arms and bridge of the model, updating the technique and giving it a current, bold feel.The delicate gold plaques at the front and on the arms nicely catch the light to subtly twinkle against the Havana Classic acetate.
As with all of our products, VINCENZO is handcrafted meticulously in Italy, using only top-drawer materials and Zeiss lenses for indisputable quality and un-rivalled UV protection.”
