From the makers of Dita and Oliver Peoples, Masunaga has been creating frames in Japan since 1905. This is the manufacturer that has pioneered some of the biggest names (and frames!) in the optical industry – the Oliver Peoples “NDG” and the Dita “New Yorker” to name but a few.
Combining top quality Japanese acetate and titanium with a refined manufacturing process from start to finish, there are up to 200 manual processes that go into creating each frame.
In order to keep things bespoke, not only does Masunaga release limited edition frames that number just a few hundred around the world, some frames are etched with the founder’s name Gozaemon Masunaga and others have etching patters in the steel core of the temples – finer details that are often ignored by other labels.
Each frame is available with an Asian bridge fit, so if you’re nose bridge is height challenged but you want to be able to wear acetate frames, then you won’t find more comfortable glasses than this collection!
