A legacy of Italian accomplishment

Eyeclix is proud to be designated official distributor of Nannini, one of the world’s most distinctive lines of eyewear.

The Nannini story is one of devotion and dedication to excellence. It began when automotive and motorcycle aficianado Giorgio Nannini, following a chance encounter with a Bugatti racing car driver in 1958, set out to create specialized, innovative eyewear for driving. His unwavering passion and Italian sense of style led to extraordinary products, expertly made by hand and recognized the world over for their quality and design. In 1962, another happy coincidence led Nannini onto his most ambitious project: the thinnest eyewear in the world, eyewear that was practical and easy to carry around. This is how Compact, the Italian and international prize-winning eyewear line, was born.

In 1972, production started on a large scale (meticulously made in Italy, as it still is today) with the purchase of specially designed machinery to make glasses with lenses. After an innovative and successful sales campaign which included talking in-store displays (a first in the industry), the name grew to become what it is today.

International market growth led to much recognition and resulted in the honour of a special exhibition for the eyewear being hosted at the MOMA in New York: the most “Ingenious and Unique Eyewear in the World.”

The company continues to hold to the same values that prompted Giorgio Nannini to start out on his fantastic adventure: passion, craftsmanship and quality that is diligently made in Italy.

Eyeclix is proud to represent this fine legacy of passion to excellence, bringing Nannini’s outstanding products to the North American marketplace.
