When it comes to understated elegance and outstanding craftsmanship, no one does it better than Italian leather house Bottega Veneta. Those two qualities are embodied in the brand’s latest Felis sunglasses, which is a study in modern elegance. Available up to only 500 pieces, each piece is carefully hand-crafted by adept artisans using precious tech-materials: Premium Acectate hand-woven into the brand’s iconic intrecciato motif, which emphasizes the Felis’s cat-shaped frame, and polarized mineral lenses (the thinnest of its kind) to give the wearer a tinted hue of allure. Even the packaging is noteworthy—a customized hand-woven leather case with a matching box. The romanticism of technology and luxury, a design signature of the brand, underscores the construction of the Felis and it is in the detailing and narrative that luxury truly meets beauty.
