“Occhiali da sole pin” is an Italian word for pin sunglasses and a combination of the function of pin, meaning literally. The structure of the sunglasses leg was utilized with the design and structure of the pins, and the inconvenience of possession and storage was improved when sunglasses were not worn. Even when sunglasses are not worn, a new design direction is proposed as an element of a single fashion item by mounting through a pin. The structure of the sunglasses leg is made of a pin structure, and due to the elasticity of the spring, It is designed to be easy to fix on clothes. In order to minimize the heterogeneity of the pin structure, it was designed in consideration of the overall shape, and the pin itself was used as a design element, and the simplicity and intuitive beauty of a straight line were expressed.


Difficult subject matter, just when you think everything has been done in glasses frames. The beauty of this design is how subtle it is in execution. The clip becomes a defining part of the design without it becoming overtly a clip. Very elegant...

Good craft and skill with appreciation for lifestyle and communicating the emotion look and look. Commendable observation and direction to show how people may want to show an alternative to wearing glasses...

Well rendered project. Subtle additional component to eye glass design that enhances the safety of the glasses when not in use.
