Nuestra colección de verano nació en California

Our summer collection was born in California

We are moved by the sea, the waves, freedom, summer and heat. Friends and calm when everything seems to work. In this post we tell you what elements have led us to create our Hyde, Laguna and Pacific collections, so that, when you wear them, you remember why you wear them and what it means to equip yourself with Hanukeii.

And what moves you?

Hanukeii's Hyde collection has its origins in the famous Californian Hyde Street.

We found this area particularly special, first of all, because of the street itself; steep, with cars parked on both sides of the road and the funicular traveling up and down the street, transporting tourists and locals.

Seen this way, the panorama may seem familiar and unoriginal, but what made Hyde Street inspire us and give us such a good feeling is that at the end of the street, the city opens up to the Pacific, and, what What's more, it allows you to walk above it thanks to the Hyde Street Pier, which seems to be straight out of a pirate movie, as it is home to half a dozen historic ships and is part of the San Francisco Maritime National Park.Walking on this pier teleports you to the past with each step.

We will never forget the scenario in which we observed the street from its highest point, we had the ocean dyed a deep blue and the sky in a lighter tone above it in front of us, the clear day and the Hyde funicular ST. Approaching us.

As we descended this very peculiar street in the center of San Francisco towards the sea, we began to think about all the literature and cinema that had been born under our feet, in that environment, at that point on Hyde Street and whose scripts have been toured the corners of the city; San Francisco has been a great inspiration, not only for us, but also for musicians, writers and the entire art world.

In San Francisco takes place the passionate story of love and mystery between Kim Novak and Jimmy Stewart in Vertigo, the relationship between Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews in Princess by Surprise and even the resurgence of the myth of vampires through the narration in the novel Vampire Chronicles of the life of the vampire Lestat and the relationships he has with the other vampires and mortals that he encounters in the United States.

Then we were clear; Let's design glasses that house the essence of a street that has inspired us so much and that has such a marked cultural and trend-creating legacy.

The sunglasses from the Hyde collection pick up and reflect the pastel yellow and somewhat worn color of the funicular, the houses, the cars and the trees that surround it, the Hyde Street pier, which also functions as a passageway that takes us back in time, to sunny days when sunglasses were completely necessary in the eyes and not on the head.

The design of the glasses is large, visible, it has presence. But it does not lose its elegance or sobriety. It helps enhance the definition of the face, nuances it and balances it, so that whoever wears it feels like the protagonist of a Hitchcock film or a royal person who has always lived in the shadows. Of course, always take the Hyde ST funicular.


Laguna Beach has been the origin of the creation of our Laguna sunglasses collection. But they also have rivets, ideas and sensations that we have rescued from Audrey Hepburn's wonderful wardrobe in her films, always designed by Givenchy.

Laguna Beach is a tiny coastal city that houses countless cuecas, beaches and coves in its interior. Crystal clear water, hiding places and of course a very particular personality and essence.

One of the characteristics that defines us as a brand at Hanukeii is that we find our home on the beach. In walking on the sand, cold when the afternoon falls and hard when the foam of the sea waves soak it. Our home is framed in an eternal time, but that can consist of a walk along the shore. But he also lives by and for fashion, trends and to transmit an essence that is transmitted to many others.

There are three elements that have especially influenced us when creating our collection. These elements are translated into the form of the beaches that we found on a route in which we traveled through Laguna Beach from north to south.

We are left, on the one hand, with the landscape, the color of the water and the sand of Treasure Island Beach. We felt that we were in the perfect spot to breathe easy in a yoga class, to have breakfast looking at the sea regardless of the time or the next activity, to rest on the sand grateful to be in that place.

On the other hand, the dark color of the sand on the 1000 Steps beach, the small lagoons and the corners that we were able to discover on this beach have been the protagonists of the tone that one of our Laguna models has received; but it was at Rockpile Beach when we truly felt like we were in paradise. This rocky area, covered with palm trees and vegetation little known to most, allowed us to be calm throughout the day, and feel that the beach was for us and we for it.

The Laguna Bi- Magenta glasses model has been designed step by step following Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina and Breakfast at Tiffany's. It is logical to think that the queen of sunglasses, of style and elegance, has left us such a great inspirational legacy that we want to keep it alive always.

Our collection is between the retro aura and the classic Cat Eye model. Both are a big trend this summer and of course, an essential accessory for anyone who wants to explore Laguna Beach like us.


“The best sunsets, I have always believed, are next to the Pacific.”

The Pacific Ocean has been another great source of inspiration for Hanukeii and for the design process of our PACIFIC collection , located on the shores of the beaches of the coast of the lower California.

California is bathed by the water of this ocean, cold and hard, uncontrollable and imposing, but which offers movie-like sunsets and routes that line its shores along the coastal cities.

Our model PACIFIC was born while we were traveling the Pacific route by car. We discovered places like the Point Bonita lighthouse, faithful watchdog of San Francisco Bay, where we contemplated views, as the locals said, “breath-taking” and from where we saw, in the distance, the Golden Gate Bridge. We also visited Half Moon Bay, which extended towards the ocean, gave us tranquility and offered us pure, clean air. We went when the afternoon fell and we saw how the sun fell on Half Moon to give way to the night, dark, warm and starry.

The ocean, the colors, the rocks, the visual power of the landscapes and the instant union with the nature of a California that is not yet manipulated by humans, gave rise to the creation of the collection PACIFIC, whose models reflect in their colors those of the sand, those of the moonlit bay and the darkness typical of the depth of the Pacific Ocean.

We hope that this article has taken you a little to the beaches of California, to the smell of Pacific salt and to Audrey, to Hitchcock, to the past. And you enjoyed it.
