Cazal 001, a legend become alive

words Editorial Staff

The Cazal 001 – launched at Silmo – was created from one of original drawings by Cari Zalloni from 1989. Its aesthetic idiom tells design history. Using state-of-the-art technology, this model combines acetate and the 24-carat gold-plated metal parts with precision – in a masterpiece of design, quality and craftsmanship. An exclusive, lavishly designed box underscores the special value this extraordinary eyewear exudes.

Cari Zalloni – eponym and Chief Designer of Cazal – was a visionary, lateral thinker and aesthete. The success of the brand is due to his creative genius and passion for eyewear; it is a brand loved by its fans the world over. He recorded his inspirations, which have given the eyewear its very own unmistakable face, in countless sketches permanently reflecting his devotion to the object.

The Cazal 001 is available in the colours black-gold in a limited edition of 999 and in amber-gold in a limited edition of 499.
