Dolce&Gabbana proudly honours once more the traditions of Italian craftsmanship, and for the fist time it applies the art of micro mosaic to its eyewear. This process has its roots in ancient Roman culture: the technique of micro mosaic, or filato minute mosaic, required the spinning of the tiles that composed the mosaic, resulting in tiles that were much smaller and thinner than those used in classic mosaics.
The micro mosaic, created exclusively for the Dolce&Gabbana eyewear collection, involves masterly expertise in the spinning of Murano glass, resulting in micro tiles that are then delicately and accurately laid by hand by skilled craftsmen, a technique that constitutes the very foundation of their craft. To create the floral compositions in mosaic that embellish the eyewear of Dolce&Gabbana Mosaico Collection, over thirty different filato designs were developed that beautifully recreate the leaves, pistils, and petals of the flower.
The result is a true inimitable “artwork” expressing the most refined premium luxury, and it acts as a tribute to those floral themes that are so beloved by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, themes that are deeply embedded in the DNA of the brand.
DG2136. Created with around 1000 micro-tiles that embellish the front and temples, this Limited Edition is a truly unique model and a tribute to those floral themes that are so beloved by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.
The micro mosaic composition beautifully recreates different types of flowers: romantic red pansies, snow white plumeria, and the delicate hues of the pink ger-beras and the lilac of forget-me-nots.
