PRISM was launched in 2009, by founder/creative director Anna Laub – an ex-style editor – born out of a desire for optical glasses that were both fashionable and functional.
Her love of summer and sunnier climates, together with her obsession with attention to detail and function, brought her to develop her minimal aesthetic into product ranging from optical glasses and sunglasses to swimwear and espadrilles. All the while maintaining the same ethos – to luxury products that are both functional and beautiful.
Celebrating traditional craftsmanship, the PRISM eyewear collection is hand made in a family run factory in the Treviso region of Italy; the historic home of glasses-making. Acetates are exclusively developed for us or chosen from an archive of blocks dating back to 1849, each handmade frame is cut from these blocks and thus is as unique as the wearer. Combining traditional techniques with modern design, frames are thought of as an accessory just like any other, adding to your look rather than detracting from it.
Each item is named after a destination it was inspired by.
