When designing these tortoise shell frames we were thinking of Bacchus, the ancient Roman god of wine and celebration, often represented as a beautiful youth with black eyes and flowing curls filleted with ivy, in a chariot drawn by panthers. These Bacchus eyeglass frames are for those whom an admiring cadre of friends befits the status of a satirical goddess in times of peace and contentment, as well as for those who have cat-like strength and cunning when battle approaches.
Bacchus eye frames are a ruby red wine tortoise shell color.
In fact, the feline angled curved rims imbued with red amber-wine tortoise shell give the wearer of these eyeglass frames a deeply passionate aura, as one who drinks deep from the fount of being alive. Or as they say in Rome, "bevuto con l'amore della vita" (drunk with love of life).
