RIGARDS frames have forged an instantly recognizable style that combines offbeat aesthetics with a quiet elegance, much of which pertains to our spirited craftsmanship and unique use of traditional materials such as solid wood, .925 solid silver, copper, genuine horn, and aluminum-magnesium. No less compelling are the signature finishes, imparting nuance and character to the frames and creating a distinctive bespoke element.
Nominated for the best avant-garde designer sunglasses during Silmo d’Or 2017, RIGARDS is drawn to aesthetics that are not considered conventionally beautiful. The designs are influenced by the incredible textures and patterns formed by mother nature.
The emphasis is on handmade craftsmanship applied to simple products using traditional natural materials. The designs are original and nonconformist, intended for discerning individuals who appreciate the ingenuity and independent spirit.
Every pair of frames is handcrafted with tremendous attention using time-honored methods of production and hand-finished with signature surface treatments, combining virtues of the past with modern sensibility. RIGARDS offers both, European and Asian fits to provide maximum comfort for different face shapes.
