Illesteva was founded in 2010 in response to a shortage of high-quality eyeglasses and sunglasses on the market that were priced at a fair point. Co-founder Daniel Silberman traveled Europe to find manufacturers that stayed true to artisan traditions, and made partnerships with some of the most regarded, long-standing factories in Italy and France. Each pair is designed at Illesteva’s headquarters in SoHo before being brought to live via a meticulous 50-step process. Wire and acetate frames from Illesteva are at once timeless and on-trend, from boldly re-imagined wayfarers to minimalist aviators. Shop a selection of Illesteva sunglasses at Bergdorf Goodman.
