While the “Matsuda” brand may not be familiar to everyone, longtime eyewear aficionados will instantly recognize it. For the better part of three decades “Matsuda” was one of the most sought-after luxury eyewear brands on the market.

Created by legendary Japanese fashion designer Mitsuhiro Matsuda, Matsudas were the “it” eyeglass frames and sunglasses through the ’80s and ’90s. Known for his soft, yet structured design aesthetic, Mitsuhiro Matsuda parlayed his fashion sense into a line of eyewear that became renowned for it’s chic, artsy style combined with precise Japanese engineering.

“I make clothes for people who dream, yet who want to look credible,” Matsuda once said. That same philosophy found its way into Matsuda’s eyewear line, which made expert use of metals like titanium and combined them with an artist’s eye for detail.

Matsuda died in 2008 and his line ended.

This pair is a finely crafted burnished bronze wire rim. The side pieces are exquisite
cloisonné, in an art nouveau style. The glass is prescription and ready for your own. The sun glasses attachment snap on and are also beautifully crafted. The original case is a bit beat up, and it says Made in Italy. Yes, some Matsuda eyewear were made in Italy, the country of art.

These are very special, rare, artistic, and poetic.
