VINCENT CATANI - MODEL 76 BLACK
The MODEL 76 is a wide rectangle frame with golden detailing, produced in limited quantities.
The design is an homage to vintage car design, especially to the American luxury car designs of the 70s. One that really came to mind when creating the concept was the Lincoln Continental Mark IV which was the car for personal luxury and swagger at the time. In 1976 Lincoln upped the model by adding more personal color options and limited edition interior designs that were created together with fashion designers Emilio Pucci, Bill Blass, and Cartier. This really increased the appeal and personalization of the Continental.
The temples are inspired by the profile and the tail lights, and the frame came into shape by observing the headlights and the grill of various vintage cars. Car and eyewear design have significant similarities – the shiny coating, shapes, colors and attention to detail both play a part in the design process. This frame is an eye-catching piece that will be admired by others when you roll by.
