Ffin - NOS
BRAND - Ffin
PRODUCT NAME - NOS
Ffin is an independent new eyewear brand designed by artist and jewellery designer Anna Lewis, the new range of sunglasses are designed in Wales and handmade in Italy from the best Italian bio acetate, and bio lenses.
Ffin translates in Welsh as ˜frontier' border’ or ‘boundary'. The brand is all about these defining lines, at the very edge of things. The lines we cross be they real or imaginary, visible, tangible or invisible. There is always a hint of rebellion here, for wearers with a little bit of an edge. They are created for the adventurous, the outsiders, the creative souls that are walking their own path in the world. For people that skirt the rules of the status quo, eyewear for the individual. Anna is bringing her unique artistic flare and understanding of jewellery adornment to the optical industry with her first range of sunglasses. The aim is to push unique eyewear design in the UK with the quality of European manufacture and material using bio and recycled materials across the brand. NOS is Welsh for 'Night', a period of darkness in any 24 hours. Forming part of the launch collection, using complex cross lamination processes to incorporate 2 different bio acetates (including a black to clear fade) it exaggerates the use of line on a faceted cat eye frame silhouette with defining points and slices. With mismatched temples with detailed colour tips each temple has the signature Ffin logo 'edge' notched out on each side. This signature linear edge can be seen cutting through the frame on one side in solid white. Asymmetrical and designed for those who want to stand out.
