Portrait Interface

$549.00

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 Interface belongs to the Glitch series and 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.
Having taken inspiration from Video ART, the Glitch Series is the only PORTRAIT series that has been interpreted through a 2D material, stainless steel.
The Portrait Interface are a tribute to Peter Campus, an American pioneer video-artist of the 70’s who’s work experimented with the viewer identity, creating interaction through perception.

Like Campus’ work, this eyewear defies expectations and requires the participation of the beholder to be completed.
