Portrait Flavin


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 Flavin is part of the Neon series and has been inspired in the Neon ART movement, where the artistic innovation happens through the use of light and Neon.
Light is responsible of the creation of color, the property possessed by an object of producing different sensations on the eye depending on how it reflects or emits it.

The combination of color and light so unique to neon has made it a vehicle to​ ​convey​ ​emotion​ ​and​ ​ideas. Translated into eyewear our Neon series is characterized by holographic-like and customized acetate colors, rounded edges, and sanded glass like finishes.

The Portrait Flavin is dedicated to one of the neon-artist pioneers, Dan Flavin. Lines connect the rounded frame and its circles, with a minimalistic yet retro approach, similar to Flavin’s art installations.
