Since we visited the factory where Paulino Spectacles glasses are produced manually, that we are in love with the beautiful models and history of the Portuguese brand. Founded by Ramiro Paulino, Paulino Spectacles is especially appealing not only for the vintage-inspired frames, but also for being genuine, for revealing the universe its creator, his origins and passions. To celebrate the launch of two new models, Paulino Spectacles presents a new lookbook, where we can also see the glasses of the existing collection in a new light.
The Saudade model, inspired by the time when Ramiro Paulino worked in his father’s optical shop, in Caldas da Rainha, represents the memories he has of that time, the eighties, and how that marked him until today. Although no longer with us, the father of Paulino Spectacles’ founder was a very important influence on him, either in continuing the family tradition or providing the inspiration to continue designing the brand’s collection.
With reference to the same period of his life, Nostalgia frame recalls with longing the moments lived with his father, all he taught him, both personally and professionally. The confident shape of Nostalgia model shows the unmistakable signature of Ramiro Paulino, all his knowledge in the field of optics and the purest expression of the best glasses Made in Portugal.
