Our VILLAGE collection is inspired by all the small towns, coastal villages and mountain towns that run from top to bottom of California.
It's no wonder that every corner of the state we've visited has left its mark on us, as each one of them has shown us treasures that often tend to be overlooked when visiting golden California.
If there is a doubt, the places that have stolen our hearts above all else and have led us to create our VILLAGE sunglasses collection have been the small corner of Northern California, Mendocino, a town located on top of a hill surrounded by the waves of the sea that with less than a thousand inhabitants blends both art and nature. One of the most beautiful situations that we lived in Mendocino was when we observed how writers and painters sat with their respective notebooks and easels on the grass, at sunset, to express in the form of words and colors, what their eyes saw.
The other small town that has constantly popped into our minds as we went through the design and production process for the VILLAGE collection was Carmel-by-the-sea, where we saw architectural and cultural design that blended the style of a Californian beach with the serene and tender construction of a tiny city that seems to come out of a fairy tale.
We are sure that California is the place for variety, combinations and, of course, style and fashion.It is commonly said that it is in the heart of California where trends are born that later travel the world, and for this reason, our VILLAGE collection has soaked up this Californian trendsetting creating daring, very “lady” designs, that will not go unnoticed in the list of trends this season
