Nader Zadi - when getting framed is a lunatic pleasure

Nader Zadi, founder of Customeyes, has presented a rare limited-edition model of sunglasses. They are inspired by the eighth phase of the waxing moon, with a double dip crescent profile on the lenses, which are midnight blue in colour. This symbolism is repeated on the upper and lower sides of the lenses, for a total of eight crescent shapes. There are similar curves on the bridge, which is made in white gold, with filigree decoration and solid gold nose pads. The frames actually date to about 1920.

In fact, Nader Zadi specializes in collecting antique frames and components, some of which are 200 years old. He uses these materials to create bespoke sunglasses, designed in cooperation with each client. The antique frames are restored and transformed into designs of contemporary appeal. Nader works by appointment in Manhattan, and by special arrangement in various cities throughout the world. His ambition is to create the finest frames in the world.
