Portrait Charlotte


PORTRAIT eyewear founders and sister/brother duo Valentina and Gabriel Hernandez had a dream: to create a brand focused on bringing design-savvy users, and vintage, sustainably produced, affordable eyewear together. Not only would the brand follow fair-trade practices and rescue the quickly-disappearing handcraft trade, but it would be a means for emerging artists to network, take-on life with confidence, and highlight their own individuality.

A few years ago, that dream came true, and PORTRAIT has been pumping out bold designs ever since. Various shapes recall vintage outlines featuring a slightly toned-down, minimalist aesthetic: frames are flat, colorful and unique, with sharp edges and an underlying harmony that makes each pair as individualistic as the person wearing them. The products are 100% handmade with passion and precision, reflective of the generations of immaculate Italian craft behind them.

The Portrait Charlotte belongs to the Glitch series has been inspired by the Video ART movement, where the artistic innovation happens within an intangible “place”.
The Glitch is an “error” that often becomes the element of beauty. Pixels, image fragmentation, noise and colored bars.

Having taken inspiration from Video ART, the Glitch Series is the only PORTRAIT series that has been interpreted through a 2D material, therefore stainless steel.

The Glitch is a feminine shape that’s timeless but contemporary, strong but simple.
The Portrait Charlotte – Dedicated to Elisabeth Charlotte Rist, better known as Pipilotti Rist, these sunglasses express experimentation, courage and the break of conventional barriers, embracing color through the intervention of pieces of acetate and colorful lenses.
