Introducing the latest addition to 8000 Eyewear - a new Luxury edition of 8000’s iconic round metal design, the 8M6, now adorned with 14K gold plating.
Known for its impeccable craftsmanship, emphasis on functionality and form follows function design, 8000 has created a collection of metal-only frames with an emphasis on timelessness, purity and lightness.
A series of five frames – three crafted from metal alloys and two in titanium – were designed by drawing inspiration from the earliest technical eyewear of 1930s mountaineers, characterised by extreme functionality, lightness and high-end craftsmanship.
Founded in New York, but firmly rooted in Italian design culture, Ottomila creates eyewear that stands out for its attention to detail, meticulous research and a sophisticated vision of contemporary luxury.
Manufactured as part of the RETROSUPERFUTURE Group, C3 is the latest seasonal release of Ottomila eyewear for Spring/Summer 23.
RETROSUPERFUTURE is expanding its licensing partnerships with some of the most cutting-edge contemporary brands that share its heritage, approach to style and unique vision of eyewear design. One such brand is Ottomila, a high-end company dedicated to the design of exceptional timeless eyewear. The brand was founded by Luca Cavallaro, an Italian designer living in New York known for collaborating with some of the most prestigious contemporary brands. Having built his reputation inside the industry across Italy and the US, Cavallaro decided to focus on his own project.
Ottomila’s approach to design is shaped by this particular cross-Atlantic heritage: the meticulous obsession with Italian craftsmanship and the bold visual style of New York’s urban lifestyle. This season, the partnership with RSF brings the first ever production of acetate sunglasses to Ottomila’s collection, expanding its roster of timeless yet sharp pieces.
