Dolce & Gabbana unveiled a new limited collection of sunglasses – Dolce & Gabbana Mosaico Collection. Italian fashion house honours once more the traditions of Italian craftsmanship, this time the technique of micro mosaic, or filato minute mosaic. It requires the spinning of the tiles that composed the mosaic, resulting in tiles that were much smaller and thinner than those used in classic mosaics. So, using this ancient Roman technique, the gold metal frame and temples are literally covered by precious mosaic decors. The tiny tiles made from the spinning of Murano glass are delicately arranged in floral pattern. To achieve this effect over thirty different filato designs were developed that beautifully recreate the leaves, pistils, and petals of the flower.
The Collection is declined in many styles. The highly luxurious all over mosaico one (DG2136) created with around 1000 micro-tiles that embellish the front and temples. This Limited Edition is a truly unique model and a tribute to those floral themes that are so beloved by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. The micro mosaic composition beautifully recreates different types of flowers: romantic red pansies, snow white plumeria, and the delicate hues of the pink gerberas and the lilac of forget-me-nots.
There are two more commercial options. A romantic and sophisticated round model (DG4215) featuring temples embellished with a micro mosaic insert, comprising of 600 micro tiles (300 on each temple) and decorating almost the entire temple shaft. And an elegant square model (DG4214) featuring temple detail embellishment near the hinge with micro mosaic details comprising of 150 micro tiles (75 on each temple). It is a sophisticated and refined jewel-model that is Available in Havana, red, and black with polarised lenses. The collection is also available in the optical version in a variation of styles and colors.
