THERE ARE COUNTLESS LUXURY EYEWEAR BRANDS
BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE EPILUXURY EYEWEAR BRAND IN THE WORLD.
THAT WHICH HOLDS TRUE TO FIVE SINGULAR TENETS
IN A PERSONAL AND MEANINGFUL MANNER HAS ALL BUT DISAPPEARED.
WE EXIST TO RESUSCITATE IT’S POWER.
THE FIVE TENETS OF EPILUXURY
A MODULAR EYEWEAR SYSTEM
EPI-SYSTEM / MODULAR DESIGN
All DITA-EPILUXURY eyepieces feature interchangeable temples and include a set of additional cable temples.
All of our optical frames include sun clips.
DITA-EPILUXURY flagship eyepieces feature
interchangeable lens units, temples and in the case of EPLX.5, bridge components.
EPI-SYSTEM / SINGLE LENS RELEASE
The DITA-EPILUXURY flagship frames EPLX.5 and
EPLX.9 enable the user to change lenses through a simple yet ingenius lens release system.
The lens release mechanism in EPLX.5 and EPLX.9
are optimized for each frame. The EPLX.5 lens unit is
encased in titanium clipping into the frame and
minimizing the direct handling of the lens itself. The EPLX.5 Lens unit is further secured by the detachable bridge component which clips over the lens unit and
onto the frame. The EPLX.9 lens release uses a hollowed out titanium brow bar with a powerful magnet
embedded within. The titanium encased lens unit clips
up into the brow bar and is held taught by the magnet.
EPLX.9 LENS RELEASE SYSTEM
39 MONTHS OF DEVELOPMENT
INFORMED BY HIGHLY SPECIALIZED MANUFACTURERS
AND DESIGNERS FROM GERMANY, JAPAN, AND AMERICA
FRAMES : QUICK SHANGE SYSTEM
Just as considered as lens technology, the EPI-SYSTEM frames also exhibit a fully integrated design and engineering approach. The temple quick-change system enables the user to change temples easily. This system is built as a tool free release that utilizes a press-button release functionality. The DITA-EPILUXURY temple is one of the most difficult design concepts that DITA has ever attempted.
DITA-EPILUXURY offers 3 different temples, with every eyepiece including 2 of the 3 temple designs.
A SINGLE DITA-EPILUXURY TEMPLE,
21 HIGH PRECISION COMPONENTS
MONTHS TO CRAFT A SINGLE EYEPIECE CONCEPT
ONLY A HIGHLY SPECIALIZED FACTORY
IS ABLE TO EXECUTE DITA-EPILUXURY UP TO OUR STANDARDS
DITA-EPILUXURY IS SO DIFFICULT TO
PRODUCE THAT THE SEARCH FOR A
FACTORY ABLE TO EXECUTE TO OUR
STANDARDS TOOK YEARS.
OPTICAL GLASS CRAFTSMANSHIP :
PROCESSED WITH DIAMONDS
Out of all different kinds of glass, ‘optical glass’, must be put through particular physic-chemical treatment to refined the material. It is necessary to use a specialized of oven where the glass is refined. The first chamber uses only electricity to heat, while a second chamber is used to create a uniform glass flow. The glass is then taken to a temperature of 1400 °c, where the glass purifies itself.
In the last step, a pure platinum tube is put in contact with the melt, this causes a chemical reaction and purifies it. After this chemical reaction the glass is pure and only then can be defined as ‘optical’.
AND MANMADE MATERIALS
The apparent simplicity of these materials conceals
a vast amount of experimentation, work and creativity;
in which blends of natural and synthetic play a key role. Strength and lightness are obtained by combining
disparate elements seeking to unite horn-titanium or wood-titanium in a single eyewear frame. Synthetics
are now transformed by the addition of exquisite
materials and specialized varnishing treatments.

THE PERFECT BALANCE OF FORM AND FUNCTION
FROM WHAT WAS HISTORICALLY POSSIBLE,
TO WHAT IS PRESENTLY SURPASSIBLE.
Authenticity and appreciation is something you can sense in every EPILUXURY product produced. It is not simply about having a rich archive of past products, it is built upon real traditions, experience, values and know-how handed down through generations. Some of the designers and craftsman involved in producing
DITA-EPILUXURY have decades of experience mastering the craft. Beyond our own experience, studying the past is essential and fundamental to our design ethos. Through this study, a cyclical relationship informing the future is created. From what was historically possible, to know what is presently surpassible.
