What is your Random Act of Creativity?
An explosion of new geometries for the face, a journey into the imaginary, into a cultural and visual heritage of ages and styles to uniquely frame the unique character of each of us. Each pair of Sestini sunglasses is handcrafted in Italy, brought to life through slow and thoughtful artisanship. Lovingly made in a small family run factory, the legacy of craftsmanship and Italian heritage is inherent in every detail. Harnessing simplicity and minimalism, quality reigns over quantity: each of the three models, Uno, Due and Tre, is made in small limited batches and available in three colour-ways. Carl Zeiss lenses were selected in order to guarantee 100% UVA/UVB protection and immaculate vision.
What is your creative mission?
Sestini’s creative mission is to create beautiful sunglasses that have minimal impact on the environment and that can be cherished for a lifetime. Our emphasis on elevated classic design is a transition from the ubiquitous school of fast fashion, and priorities legacy and heritage. Quality reigns over quantity: each model is a limited edition available in only three colour ways and made in limited quantities. Today the sunglasses pouch, the lens-cleaning cloth, along with written materials that you receive with your orders are made from recycled materials. Tomorrow, all Sestini sunglasses will follow suit. We offset all of our carbon footprint by planting a tree for every pair of sunglasses sold (with our partners One Tree Planted) and offset the carbon footprint of every individual shipment using DHL’s new carbon offset service.
‘Perseverance is the key to success’. This quote is very important to us because not only is it inscribed into the sunglasses box that each person receives when they make a purchase, but it’s also an ode to all the obstacles we faced when creating Sestini and therefore the obstacles we overcame.
