Children of Ra x Francesco Carrozzini
"My mission is to create frames for people who share my passion for one-of-a-kind specialty pieces. This allows me to experiment freely with different styles, references, materials, and colors. But more importantly, I want the frames to feel truly special and to become collectors’ items. Individuality is important to me. I have always loved searching for unique pieces at vintage stores and flea markets and when coming across that exact 50’s biker jacket, knowing that I am only one of a very few to have it. Since the entire concept behind Children of RA is for these glasses to be a reflection of my personal style, I made sure that carried over into how they were produced. Each frame is handmade and individualy numbered (Series #1-330)."
"I hope you enjoy the frames as much as I have enjoyed designing them."
