DITA - NARCISSUS
Crystal yellow gold frame
ABOUT THE NARCISSUS
Narcissus’s oversized frame recalls the bold, muscular proportions of 80s-era womenswear and accessories—silhouettes that tinkers with traditional concepts of power and subverted gender roles; the effect is especially pronounced in the carefully sculpted acetate lens rims, which dispense with cliché and offers a fresh take on power dressing for modern women.
The contrast of materials and the novel experimentation with familiar form makes Narcissus a bridge between past and present, nostalgia and innovation.
The slender titanium front frame and 2-base lens configuration recall the flourishing technological advances that heralded the arrival of the digital age; exquisitely rendered monofilament details, made possible by DITA’s precision manufacturing techniques, demonstrate the power of technology.
