Shameless Fixation #3 – Dita's Splendour


Ok, so I write a lot about Dita here, but there is good reason for it.  They are making some of the best sunglasses right now in both design and quality.  They are made in Japan, whereas a lot of the bigger name brands have been made in China for years.  They have been popular with celebrities for some time now, and with designs like this they’ll only get more popular.   

When they release a new design I pay attention.  This is a recent release and it is simply fantastic.  It is called Splendour.  It has the feel of an Oliver Peoples or Barton Perreira, but with Dita cachet, which can not be imitated.  I simply love the vintage style nose piece.  Take a look:


Splendour indeed


The above pair is the White Gold model, but they also come in black, brown and camo.  I’ve seen this style on David Beckham among others and it is just getting popular.     

They retail for about $300.  If you are not familiar with Dita, take a look at their website.

Definitely one of Dita's most impressive frames, though I'm leaning towards the Midnight Special (or a Barton Perreira Vanquest) as a birthday/Christmas present for myself. We shall see.
