Founded in 2016, LAPIMA eyewear is designed in Brazil, out of an atelier in Sao Paolo, and crafted from Italian acetate. The collection emphasizes contrasts and is inspired by how extremes exist alongside each other as well as how they intersect. Juxtaposition is part of Sao Paolo's essence—the city's architecture and urban chaos is just as much a part of its identity as the forests and beaches. Similarly, every LAPIMA silhouette is a marriage of what might naturally compliment a face and what makes a bold statement.
