Dolce & Gabbana proudly honours once more the traditions of Italian craftsmanship, and for the first time applying the art of micro mosaic to its eyewear. The roots of the process lie in ancient Rome.
The technique of micro mosaic, or filato minute mosaic, requires the spinning of the tiles that composed the mosaic, resulting in tiles that were much smaller and thinner than those used in classic mosaics. The micro mosaic, created exclusively for the Dolce & Gabbana eyewear collection, involves masterly expertise in the spinning of Murano glass, resulting in micro tiles that are then delicately and accurately laid by hand by skilled craftsmen, a technique that constitutes the very foundation of their mosaic craft.
To create the floral compositions in mosaic that embellish the eyewear of Dolce & Gabbana Mosaico Collection, over thirty different filato designs were developed that beautifully recreate the leaves, pistils, and petals of the flower. The result is a true inimitable “artwork” expressing the most refined in premium luxury, and it acts as a tribute to the floral themes that are so beloved by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, themes that are deeply embedded in the DNA of the brand.
Dolce & Gabbana首次採用精緻高貴的微鑲馬賽克工藝，製作出全新Mosaico太陽眼鏡系列，彰顯出義大利傳統手工製作技藝的經典傳承。Micro mosaic（微鑲馬賽克）工藝又名filato mosaic，始於古羅馬時期，歷史悠久。工匠需要對馬賽克圖案的每個組成部分進行精細加工，與傳統馬賽克磚塊相比，這種工藝製作的馬賽克片極其微小纖薄。為了製作Dolce & Gabbana Mosaico系列的馬賽克裝飾圖案，品牌工匠共使用了30多種不同類型的馬賽克片，栩栩如生地再現了葉子以及花朵的花蕊和花瓣，呈現出難以被效仿的超凡藝術精品。
