Ottica Veneta | Eyewear from the Mountains of Italy epitomizes the essence of Italian luxury, and is characterized by a rare blend of old world craftmanship with the latest in Italian fashion.
From its inception in 2002, founder Riccardo Lamon, a native of Northern Italy, established a small consortium of families located in the Veneto region who were committed to maintaining the high standards that have made Italian eyewear synonymous with quality. By guaranteeing that 100% of the production stay in Italy, Lamon began a new brand called Ottica Veneta | Eyewear from the Mountains of Italy.
Since then, Ottica Veneta has carved its own place in the optical market as an independent, sole proprietorship wholly dedicated to maintaining the same standards of quality to which artisans of centuries past were committed.
Logistic and headquarter operations are located in Dallas, TX USA.
In 2004, Ottica Veneta launched its signature luxury brand, Sospiri Eyewear ®. This limited edition collection captures the elegance and opulence unique to Italy’s crown jewel city of Venice. The intricacies of Venice’s architecture, textiles, Murano glass, Burano lace and infamous masquerades are captured within the rich patterns of laserwork intertwined with Swarovski crystals.
Sospiri® is sold worldwide to a select number of fine boutiques, opticians and luxury department stores.
