For the short period of Casanova Eyewear ‘s existence in the 1980s, after a hiatus of more than 30 years, the company is now back on the market and is offering this very same vintage piece. Its current direction continues to be inspired by independent artists, art movements, and the treasured heritage of the 1900’s: the Viennese Secession, Mondrian, Miró, Kandinsky and Le Corbusier, from whose artwork many shapes and colors were already borrowed into the designs. From the first introduction at the fashion trade fairs of 1985, through the following 25 years, the iconic image of it’s unique Venetian design character, hand applied cloisonné colors, and enviable architectures, has afforded Casanova Eyewear a world class reputation.
Thanks to their bold colours and spectacular frames, Casanova Eyewear catches the eye of many and if you are wearing them you will get many heads to turn.

Furthermore, Casanova glasses also aimed to epitomize a certain luxury and affluence, some frames were made by 24K gold plating. Casanova eyewear are sought after by collectors around the world. Many limited Casanova editions are now highly-coveted collectables for art lovers the world over.
