DOLCE & GABBANA model 2134 is an exceptional example of craftsmanship and design sensibility. The frame is made of perforated metal with additional ornamental flowers on the top left and right extremities. The temples are also made of the same metal ornaments as the frame. The design is reminiscent of sicilian blends of renaissaince and baroque.

The entire shape of these special metal shades reminds us of lace which is so specific to DOLCE & GABBANA’s creative verve. The lace transforms into golden metal leaving the wearer and viewer in awe! The flowers are attached to the frame and temples via screws.

The model that went into final production and retail is significantly different in shape and detailing than the model presented on the catwalk. The catwalk version has many more details and ornaments on it. The retail version apears to be watered down. What the reason for this choice is is unclear to us. Perhaps it is due to the production costs. In any case both versions seen extremly elegant. We would have, however, prefered to see the same version that hit the runway also hit retail.

The tips of the temples are covered in transparent acetate with DOLCE & GABBANA logos in golden metal inserted into each tip. The tops of the tips bare white printed brand names as well as the model number.

The right lense bares the lasered authenticity identity number. These sunglasses were a DOLCE & GABBANA boutique exclusive (some exceptions were made) and were made in Italy by LUXOTTICA.
