NARCISSUS is the the lively companion to the hit frame CREATURE that probes the complicated interplay of two 1980s cultural phenomena that continue to reverberate in contemporary society: the embrace of angular, directional silhouettes in fashion and the rapid shift from analog to digital technology; and the bold, muscular proportions of 80s-era womenswear and accessories—silhouettes that tinkers with traditional concepts of power and subverted gender roles.
The story of Dita Eyewear is really the story of life-long friends. Pursuing a passion for design, photography, performance and style they have shared since grade school, co-founders Jeff Solorio and John Juniper launched their first collection of Dita frames in 1995. From the beginning, international acclaim has greeted each new Dita collection, earning a place among the world’s most influential eyewear brands. Dita Eyewear is manufactured in the oldest, highest-quality factories in the world located in Japan. More important, the factories are manned by the last remaining master craftsman in the eyewear industry, some of whom have been perfecting their craft for more than half a century. In a world where competitors rely on mass production, rushed assembly time and quick turnaround times of 2-3 months, Dita takes pride in the fact that the production of their Eyewear can range from 6-12 months. The products are made the way old-world watchmakers assemble the finest timepieces. Artisans who believe there should be no time limit when it comes to creating a piece of history meticulously craft each and every Dita frame.
