Portrait Metro


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.

These models are suitable for vintage lovers, a genre that’s revisited through a contemporary minimalistic design.
The italian acetates are customized in beautiful and innovative ways, and are finished in either opaque,glossy, or hand brushed.

The Portrait Metro is a glamorous sunglass in an art-deco design that is undeniably beautiful.
The shape is a tribute to the iconic film “Metropolis”, the German expressionist epic science-fiction drama film directed by Fritz Lang.
