Vanni Eyewear

Italian collection, Photo-engraving, unique style....

VANNI Eyewear.

VANNI prescription- and sunwear kicked off in Turin in 1990, a look that would tour the world and be at home in Milan, Paris, New York, Tokyo and Sydney. In eyewear design VANNI means genuine originality applied to spectacle manufacture.

A very original and ‘arty’ brand and using the most sumptuous of materials in Stainless Steels and unique Italian Acetates, this beautiful collection has been the winner of many awards across the globe and is a must see to truly appreciate its qualities. VANNI is a trend-setter, an innovator in constructional technique and looks beneath mere appearances to the deeper substance of materials, harmony among shapes and the power of colour.

For over twenty-five years VANNI has represented Italian style and design to the world of eyewear. The various components are assembled by precision soldering and then comes the moment for surface decoration. This is the artistic side to manufacture, when colour and surface treatment are applied by hand to creative specifications, all with the utmost care.

VANNI is Italian design, 100% made in Italy and quality at its best.



Getting a unique pattern into a block of acetate is like creating a work of art: craftsmanship blending with millimetre precision. A hand laying foil on foil, block on block, 3-D painting in solid plastic.



Dreaming up the VANNI collections is left to the in-house style centre responsible for designing and creating all product lines. Research into style and technology underlie eyewear quality, as do prime raw materials and specialist workmanship.

VANNI glasses are entirely made in Italy: no bluff, no compromise. They design their own exclusive, inimitable materials. Personalised acetate – something rare on the world eyewear scene. Metal frames go in for the latest technology, put to novel use: laser cutting and multi-level photo-engraving on sheet steel experiment with, and borrow from, processes and treatments in other walks of industry. Assembly is completed by hand.
