The aesthetics of the Rigards x Uma Wang “Victorian” derive from nineteenth century eyewear, with just a touch of Victorian-era Steampunk wonderment. The frame is rendered in copper, a warm metal whose golden elegance and regal appeal are matched only by its superior physical properties. Color is the magic that adds dynamism and intrigue to the frame. Chalk paint finish and hand-patinated verdigris (a new RIGARDS signature) add tactile depth to the frame and soften the metal. The end result parallels the seasonal palette (gold, mustard, and lots of white) and sophisticated hand painted treatments from Wang’s latest collection. Here are the characterful upwardly-extending nose-pads, offering a universal fit that conforms comfortably to nose contours. This frame is smaller than the Victorian II.
