Meet The Designer
OD started when we realised that we never went anywhere without our sunglasses. And it was the going anywhere, that really sealed the deal.
Obsessed with the summer, just like the city we hail from. We now travel the markets, alleys and antique stores of Europe, finding the vintage gems that inspire our collection, and meeting the people who inspire our ethic. It’s this mix of old style and new thinking, that we bring back to our workshop and put into every pair of ODs.
Every pair of OD frames start with scouring the streets of Europe to find the classic frames that form the basis of all our designs. We’ve found treasure in warehouse store cupboards, dingy front rooms and side street markets.
But this ain’t a copycat thing.
We spend weeks, sometimes months re-designing, modernising and putting our own touch on the frames we find. Turning a dusty old gem, into our idea of a modern classic.
We then make our final frames from hand finished Mazzucchelli acetate. They’re Italian, and they’ve been top of their game since 1849.
Our lenses are made from lightweight CR-39 plastic and coated for proper UV
