Moleskine was created as a brand in 1997, bringing back to life the nameless black notebooks used by writers and artists like Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway and Bruce Chatwin that had long gone out of print. These notebooks were the portable companions where artists, writers and adventurers stored their ideas and memories, making Moleskine synonymous with culture, imagination, travel, memory and personal identity.
Today, the Moleskine brand encompasses a family of objects that enhance productivity and creativity including eyewear. The essential new eyewear collection is a natural addition to the Moleskine ecosystem of analogue and digital tools that support everyday life on the move. The collection features optical frames, all with a clean yet distinctive design. The glasses are both naturally elegant and innovative, as well as functional and extremely lightweight. Moleskine frames have a unique closing system that make the glasses lie almost flat when folded.
The eyewear collection empowers exploration and creativity while on the go, connecting the user to the Moleskine world of imagination, memory and travel. The spectacle cases are designed to match the notebooks, some have the distinctive Moleskine “In case of Loss” notice on the inside as well.
Ultra-thin and ultra-light with uniquely designed temples and hinges and manufactured in the finest materials available, the eyewear collection speaks to the ethos of the Moleskine brand with its timeless and
distinctive spirit. Moleskine Eyewear is now available at Edmonds and Slatter Opticians.
