Seeing Double in the Dita Eyewear x Dita Von Teese Collaboration

By
LOS ANGELES—Dita Eyewear has announced a collaboration with the iconic “Queen of Burlesque,” Dita Von Teese as they team up to bring a fresh twist to classic eyewear styles.

The update on an iconic style to create a bridgeless cat eye frame, crafted in lightweight titanium and finished off with contemporary details “represents the convergence of two creative talents at the peak of their influence.”

“The cat eye is a well-worn style, a silhouette that rarely transcends the era in which it was created,” Von Teese said. “My goal was to keep within the spirit of the 1950s, but to craft our version in a slick, new way as a secret weapon for the modern Femme Totale.”

“A slender expanse of titanium spans the brow in a single, sinuous line, for the illusion of a floating lens. Sculptural details, from the hinge mount to harlequin-point titanium temples, were inspired by selections from Von Teese’s vast collection of vintage couture and curiosities,” the company stated.

This distinct shape from this new partnership was achieved through the high-end craftsmanship and technology from Dita Eyewear’s creative studio.

Dita Eyewear for Dita Von Teese launched on Nov. 1, 2018 and is available at Dita.com, Dita flagships, fine eyewear boutiques and retailers such as Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue.
