As one of the freshest and youngest brands to come out of Italy in the past few years Illesteva has managed to solidify its status as a brand to have for both celebrities and digital influencers alike. Celebrity fans include the Queen – Beyoncé Knowles as well as Heidi Klum and socialite cum DJ Paris Hilton. It is hard to believe that this brand only came to life in 2010. With the frames being handmade in France and Italy, you can rest assured knowing that the sunglasses you are wearing are of high quality as well as time and care being taken into ensuring their quality. The styles available in our catalogue are diverse and suitable for all generations.
The brands claims to combine classic style with authentic downtown New York style, it is what they like to call laidback chic. The materials used within the designs of each frame include acetate and titanium. As is well known titanium is a very strong metal which does not break easily meaning that the sunglasses are durable and will not break easily. With the use of titanium many may believe that the frames would be heavy, but the level of craftsmanship is very high with the frames containing acetate as well. This means the frames are lightweight enough to wear all day. You can remain stylish and lovely all day and won’t have to worry about a thing.
The Illesteva woman likes to accessorize and is not afraid to experiment with colour or textures. The brand has also collaborated with many models, celebrities and key influential leaders having promoted and associated themselves with the Italian eyewear house. These key people include Jourdan Dunn, Lou Reed, Zac Posen and Dasha Zhukova to name a few. The brand is also branching out into other avenues and is working on making themselves a much more globally recognised fashion brand; they recently launched a line of hand – finished leather good and umbrellas. Their key strengths lie in accessories that could be considered key pieces that can complete any outfit. They also have handbags and backpacks made of fine leather. This brand is diverse and eccentric thus calling for people who are daring enough to handle it.
