Rounded angular cat-eye frames

Illustration of the Roman god Bacchus, namesake for the eyeglass frames

When designing these tortoise shell frames we were thinking of Bacchus, the ancient Roman god of wine 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. 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. Or as they say in Rome, "bevuto con l'amore della vita" (drunk with love of life).

The ancient Roman god of wine and celebration inspired our rich red and umber colored Leopard-pattern Bacchus frames.
