NICO II – Hove Tortoise


The NICO II – Contemporary Classic. Bold but understated. Affirming the design language of The Originals Collection. Delicate acetate carves the silhouette which is then given weight by the thick temples. The II is of a tall and narrow disposition, the sharp lines are balanced by the soft curvaceous brow. Inspired by the traditional Wayfarer shape, The II has a more robust stance with heavier temples and the minimal modern finish. Crafted in Veneto Northern Italy, the manufacturer nestles in the foothills of the dolomites. Manifested in BIO acetate. Always produced in limited amounts.
