“This frame is a homage to my beloved grandfather Felice Raffaello Bini. He used to wear this model around the end of the Seventies. I wanted to recreate it to remember his great personality and style”
Luca Gnecchi Ruscone
Raffaello is a powerful frame for a powerful personality which stands the test of time with its iconic shape, a striking frame of bold proportions and distinctive design. Its thick acetate construction reminiscent the iconic style of men populating Italian politics around the end of the Seventies and early Eighties.
Handcrafted in Italy, the 8mm thick acetate has been lengthily tumbled, resulting in a strong but smooth silhouette. Its hand polished surfaces exude power and luxury. Fitted with crystal glass lenses, the sun version ensures the best visual experience of clarity and color enhancement.
