Mann

500.00 200.00

Dita

East meets West in the form of Mann, a modern frame that infuses a quintessentially American silhouette with the unique historical signature of Japanese calligraphy. The frame’s unique contrast of volume and lightness draws upon the deliberate strokes of kaisho, an ancient artistic form that requires years of practice and extraordinary discipline to be mastered.

While the inspiration behind this familiar shape dates back centuries, the technology that makes it possible is state of the art and limited to only a handful of the finest Japanese eyewear manufacturers. Using DITA’s unique chemical annealing process, the lightweight acetate frame is rendered in a groundbreaking stainless steel core lamination process; the end product is 50% thinner than traditional acetate and more than twice as strong.

Subtle details, such as the frame’s gently chamfered edges, evoke the harmony and elegance that distinguish kaisho’s instantly recognizable broad brush stokes. Custom titanium nose pads and meticulously sculpted earpieces ensure that the artistry reflected in Mann’s design extends to the utmost in comfort.

Erasur White

525.00 210.00

Dita

Erasur celebrates the cultural panache of midcentury design, blending touchstones of American consumer culture for a modern interpretation of a classic shape from the 1950s. The peace and prosperity of postwar America coalesced into an exuberant visual style by the early 1950s, as designers envisioned a world unencumbered by wartime economy: cars sported flashy chrome ornamentation, architects unveiled futuristic concepts informed by the Space Age, and teenagers flocked to matinee screenings of stereoscopic films shown in the latest 3D technology.

Erasur owes its flat, graphic proportions and vintage detailing to the current of optimism that permeated the 1950s: its modified cat-eye shape instantly summons the 3D glasses of theater patrons and decorative tail fins of American automobiles; its wishbone temple is luxuriously ensconced in Japanese acetate, combining the hallmarks of Americana with DITA’s uncompromising commitment to comfort and style.

Journey

450.00 180.00

Dita

JOURNEY combines two disparate yet iconic 1970’s fashion trends and the creative journey that ensued is what inspired this magnificent frame’s name. An almost-round shape is a far more face-friendly interpretation of John Lennon’s famous frame,while the combination of its diamond pressed eye rims and polished brow bar are reminiscent of the ubiquitous gold chains that were undeniably the decade’s quintessential men’s fashion accessory. Combining the best of yesterday and today, JOURNEY is undeniably a timeless original.

Nightbird-One

525.00 210.00

Dita

Sculpted with the grace of wings extended in flight, Nightbird-One’s innovative titanium double frame builds upon years of experimentation with titanium construction.

The first in a triad of innovative concept frames for Spring 2018, Nightbird-One relies upon tension to hold the its wing-shaped ombre lenses in place. Previous frames models, composed of a single titanium wire, were engineered to reduce the number of moving components and thus reduce mechanical friction; Nightbird-One’s double frame construction gently cradles the lens between the thin titanium wire, creating a distinct design language for future Nightbird-Series frames.
