Introducing “BONE SERIES V”, the 5th piece in the BONE series. The aim of this piece was to create a design that is nostalgic yet like nothing else before. The most attractive aspects of the variety of eyewear that has been fashionable over the years - the medium size of the 80s, the half rims of the 90s, the delicate antique style of eyewear that came earlier and traditional lens shapes - have been reimagined, with each part updated. “BONE SERIES V” is made in a new medium size with delicate, hand-painted half rims.
