Taking inspiration from the pince-nez style popular in the late 1800s, the round shape is complemented by round nose pads and rim wire that features our signature Matsuda engraving.
250 Steps, 71 hours, and 13 Craftsmen.
Each of our designs is crafted by hand in the renowned eyewear workshops of Sabae, Japan – requiring up to two years and as many as 250 steps to bring to life. This is eyewear created through 50 years of experimentation and creative exploration: each frame reflecting a unique journey from concept to construction. We never stop seeking new innovative techniques to express our ideas.
