Dolce & Gabbana Mosaico Eyewear Limited Edition

Dolce & Gabbana Mosaico Eyewear is a luxury collection inspired by an ancient Italian craft: micro mosaics. The new women's sunglasses are the expression of the highest Italian craftsmanship ability. The gold metal frame and temples are covered with precious mosaic decors and each tassel is applied manually, one by one, making this collection unique and luxurious.

The technique of micro mosaic, or filato minute mosaic, requires the spinning of the composing tiles, thus 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 masterful expertise in the spinning of Murano glass. The micro tiles are then delicately and accurately laid by hand, a technique that constitutes the very foundation of their mosaic craft.

Over thirty different filato designs were developed in order to create the floral compositions. The collection is yet another tribute to the floral theme so beloved by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. The micro mosaic beautifully recreates different types of flowers: romantic red pansies, snow white plumeria, and the delicate hues of the pink gerberas and the lilac of forget-me-nots.
