Children of Ra
We are a unique eyewear company that is dedicated to creating the world’s finest eyewear in partnership with extraordinary individuals who – sometimes unknowingly – are operating as both a creative cultural force and an unwitting muse to many, thereby contributing to a landscape that continually redefines our lives. It is this next generation of influencers whose history, passions and aesthetics are reflected in each design, that comprises the “Children” of Ra.
Why a record label? Because at its core, Children of Ra is about the artist not about our own brand. We are besotted by true creative talent and the community and energy that surrounds them. We want to share their stories and their inspirations through their brand, and hopefully inspire a highly motivational atmosphere for our customers.
Francesco Carrozzini for Children of Ra
The relationship is much more than a collaboration; the brand is purely Francesco. The Francesco Carrozzini brand is an embodiment of the designer himself with his own voice, style and story to tell.
"My mission is to create frames for people who share my passion for one-of-a-kind specialty pieces. With this in mind, going forward each of my collections will be limited-edition. 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."
