Concept Eye Clinic, the North East’s premier and independent purveyor of boutique eye wear launched Italia Independent as the prize pinnacle of their winter collection. From the makers of Ferrari, the Italia Independent frame is designed with lightweight titanium or softly rubberised material and clever acetate from the legendary motor’s interior. Bold hues and Italia’s signature rich coloured 'velvet’ frames are made from the Ferrari glove box.
Director Shehla Naqvi said: “We are delighted to host this unique collection. Intrigue for the brand has been gathering momentum towards our preview party. Feedback across our client spectrum has been tremendous especially towards the quirky features and textures of the brand. The sensual style, look and feel of Italia is both alluring and edgy.”
Never does the phrase 'retro chic’ seem more at home. Drawn to Concept, the man or woman choosing Italia is creative, has travelled, is quietly confident and wishes to accentuate their individuality away from other peoples expectations. There is an assurance and subtle mischief about Italia. One, attendee at the preview launch commented with a light smile and sip of prosecco, summarising most peoples observations on the Italia pieces displayed, not as art, but as something to be tried out-picked up and carefully examined: 'Trust you [Concept] to show us something quite extraordinary’.
The Italia Independent collection is available exclusively from Concept Eye Clinic, Gosforth and Tynemouth.
