Dandy’s is an eyewear line made by a small factory in Segusino, Italy which only produces four brands of eyewear in their production studio. Many of shapes and styles are inspired by Enzo Ferrari who built his legacy just a couple of hours away. The studio has been producing eyewear for 45 years using only original Italian acetates and in-house designed stainless steel hinges. They believe modern production methods have become too precise and polished so some of the frames are literally unfinished, giving the frames a very natural human quality. Some are partially unfinished, some are completely unfinished with the machine markings from the cutting of the in-house acetate. It’s quite wild, and extremely unique. Most of the frames are larger than all the eyewear brands we currently carry; great if you’ve been wanting a larger or bolder frame.
We met with the people behind the line earlier this year in Bologna, Italy and have chosen with them seven frames from their 2020 collection which they’ve just finished for us. We hope you get to see these in person so you can appreciate the subtle curves and finishes.
Dandy’s is available now at all 5 Self Edge stores and online.
