The origins of VANNI lie in the name of Giovanni Vitaloni, an artist born in Milan who had an exceptional flair for engineering designs in plastic and metal.
Known as Vanni to his friends, Vitaloni was the founder and the inspiration behind a family eyewear business that looks set to be a trendsetter for generations to come.
VANNI is at the cutting edge of creative and exciting eyewear, with beautiful designs that blend colour, culture and style.
VANNI prescription eyewear and sunglasses hit the shelves in Turin in 1990 with a global appeal that is as at home in Milan as in Paris, New York, Tokyo or Sydney.
In eyewear design and spectacle manufacture the name VANNI stands for genuine originality. Our challenge is to mix and create unique combinations - and colour is our middle name.
For VANNI the label “Made in Italy” is a promise that signifies not only a rigorous creative design process but also a longstanding collaboration with our highly specialised Italian manufacturing partners.
Our eyewear is handmade by artisans in Italy whose skill and knowledge has been passed down through generations and who produce the highest quality craftsmanship with the latest precision machinery.
The “Made in Italy” label certainly means that VANNI takes sustainable responsibility during every phase of the production process - from concept and design, to the sourcing of materials and components from local suppliers, and manufacture in Italian factories of excellence.
With no international supply chain our carbon footprint is minimal and our quality control is efficient and responsive. This insures we always deliver on our high standards.
Conceptualising the VANNI collections is left to the designers at the in-house style centre responsible for creating all the product lines.
Research into style and technology underlie eyewear quality, as do prime raw materials and specialist workmanship.
VANNI glasses are entirely made and meticulously assembled in Italy - no bluff, no compromise.
We design our own exclusive, inimitable materials, with features such as personalised acetate (something rare on the world eyewear scene).
Using the latest technology, our metal frames borrow from processes and treatments from other types of industries and used in novel and experimental ways such as laser cutting and multi-level photo-engraving on sheet steel.
VANNI guarantees a complete, genuine “Made in Italy” product - and that’s for sure!
