ILLA Eyewear // Bold and Unique

ClearVision Optical is excited to announce its propriety Italian fashion eyewear collection: ILLA.

ILLA‘s premium frames offer the best in Italian style. The colorful, geometric, and exaggerated shapes in the collection make Italian premium fashion accessible for people who love statement eyewear.

The styles are 100% designed-and-crafted in Italy using top-quality acetate materials and Italian hinge components. The artisans who designed and manufactured the collection each have, on average, 30 years of experience in eyewear. Using the latest machinery and finest components, they poured their collective history of Italian fashion eyewear expertise and design into every style. The initial release features 22 bold and geometric shapes crafted into a thrilling palette of unique colorations.

  • What we’ve done in this collection is we’ve taken more chances on shapes, we’ve taken more chances on colors, and we’ve paid attention to the wire core and components so that everything looks very, very special. The frame stands alone through a creative process that brings ClearVision together with the Italian flair of true fashion artisans.

  • We’ve been making in Italy since 1966. It’s time for us to be back in Italy in a fashion sense. ILLA is a step for us in the world of fashion and international fashion.

ILLA is for bold and expressive individuals who dress and accessorize to convey their sense of self. They enter the room and announce themselves through these vibrant colors, artistic details, and eccentric shapes.

In total, the release features 88 eye-catching, Italian-artisan pieces at competitive pricing for top-quality materials and fashion eyewear. All frames will ship with a beautiful brown hard case with a pop of lime green color, as well as a cleaning cloth.
