The story begins in 1974, when the apprentices Occhialari learnt to make hand-frames glasses. Dandy's collection arose from a passion and from an expertise acquired through 35 years of difficult work. All the components and the materials are exclusively made in Italy; even cases are leather recycled Italian 100 %! The designer Fabio Stramare describes Dandy’s as "comfortable and of sophisticated, design frames which persist through time".
