Artist Andy Dixon Teams Up With .dutil Eyewear For Limited Collection Of Frames

Celebrated Canadian artist Andy Dixon is teaming up with .dutil eyewear to launch a limited collection of eyewear. With only 20 pairs available, the frames could truly be considered wearable art.

“Our goal is to create eyewear that is every bit as individual as the people that wear them,” says Dixon. “The end result is a carefully curated collection of glasses that are more than eyewear, they are works of art. The only difference is that instead of hanging them on walls in galleries, people get to wear them and show them off in their everyday lives.”

The frames feature custom Japanese acetate in forest green with gold-plated titanium accents. Each pair comes with a pink polarized sunglass clip and a collector’s leather case adorned with one of Dixon’s well-known paintings. Of course, every pair is numbered for authenticity.

“My design philosophy is quite simple: I love wearable product that takes a classic-looking design and adapting it with a modern approach. For this collaboration, it made complete sense for me to take the luxury frames .dutil is known for and transform them to a piece of wearable art that people can appreciate and wear everyday”. says .duti eyewear’s Eric Dickstien. “Everything I work on is created with hours of lost sleep and this frame is no different. I really believe that anyone that gets this frame, is getting a piece of history and that this design will stand the test of time, like a piece of traditional art would.”

The limited Andy Dixon X .dutil eyewear collection of frames will be available at premium luxury eyewear stores worldwide as of September 30th. For more information check out: dutileyewear.com.
